Jambalaya is a classic Louisiana rice dish that's loaded with meat, seasonings and flavor. It starts with spicy, smoked pork sausage (usually andouille) and the “holy trinity” of Cajun cooking: diced onion, celery and bell pepper. Other meats, rice and broth round out the robust flavor profile. This version includes chunks of chicken that cook along with the rice.
Using an Instant Pot (or any brand of multi-cooker) is a super-quick way to prepare this hearty one-pot meal. In fact, you can have it on the table in less than 30 minutes, which makes it a great dish to whip up on busy weeknights. You can make it as spicy or mild as you like it, depending on what type of sausage you use and how much Creole seasoning you add.
