Recipe For Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya


Today I opted for easy recipe: Jambalaya. I have been planning on making a jambalaya since we moved to the South in 2011, but it’s been rotting on my to-do list. Finally, I got it done and it was a huge hit.

Frugal Tip: Keep 10oz cans of chicken breast in your pantry for quick weeknight dinners. They often go on sale. In fact, I picked up some in a BOGO sale this month for less than $1 per can. Add them to casseroles, sandwiches or soup and shave off about 15-20 minutes of prep and cooking time.
