This classic American dish originated in Louisiana during Spanish rule, and it’s easy to see how it might have started off life as a local version of Valencian paella. Over time, ingredients from the Caribbean and Latin America crept in and the rich, smoky, spicy modern jambalaya was born. It’s served with Louisiana hot sauce, made with smoky chipotle chillies, which adds a lovely bright heat to the meal.

I had an old recipe and used the recommendations of Paprika and Parsley with the spare chicken left from my Achari effort and some prawns. I found I needed a little more chicken so took out a pack from the freezer. It was too much so after an amazing Cajun Meal......

This is epic... it looks like the cooking marathon is going the delicious distance!


Great flavour clean plates all round!! The hot sauce worked so well and the jambalaya flavour was really good. Will definitely be making this one again.

It's great to hear everyone enjoyed this, this is a favourite at Spicery HQ too!


We liked the chicken a lot but it was the hot sauce that stood out as being fantastic.

Excellent prompt service. Good products. Well presented. Loved the music with the Carnival box. Favourite so far is the Trinidad chicken curry.
