Sharing is caring!


When I think about jambalaya, I think about a Sunday night hearty dinner. For me, weekends are the perfect time for a one pot delicious dish. And this low carb chicken and sausage jambalaya is one dish you have to try.

it’s easy to make. I love my cast iron skillets. I’ve got a few – the Zakarian ones are great, non stick and easy to clean.

Not bad frozen and reheated, or for a leftover breakfast! If you miss rice, consider cauliflower rice, or regular rice if you’re not keto.
