A week ago, if you told me jambalaya was on for dinner, I'd be the last in line. Though universally adored, some of this famed dish's lead components (ahem, green peppers), aren't something I want to eat stewed. Except it turns out a stewy, saucy pot of meat and peppers is not what jambalaya is all about. I had this dish all wrong.

Jambalaya is a one-pot wonder, an Acadian specialty that, unlike most other star dishes from Louisiana, cooks (chicken and vegetables and rice) in one fell swoop. I love a one-pot chicken and rice, but to fall in love with this one, I first needed to understand it.

Why You Should Be Drinking Rye Whiskey

Why You Should Be Drinking Rye Whiskey The type of whiskey that George Washington distilled at Mount Vernon is going through a major resurgence.

To begin, I needed to identify where Acadia was, exactly, and how its people came to occupy one of our southernmost states. Acadia, sandwiched between Quebec and Prince Edward Island at the northern tip of America, was colonized by the French (namely from Normandy, Brittany, Poitou, Aquitaine and Île-de-France). After the French and Indian War, Acadians were deported to various American colonies and marginalized, but were later recruited by the Spanish to populate what was then called Luisiana (Louisiana). There, Cajun culture developed, with Acadian French on the tongue and jambalaya at the hearth.

Peeling back the layers of jambalaya's French, Spanish, and West African influence earned my initial buy-in; there are tangible roots in the French jambalaia (from Provence, where stewed peppers would be right at home), Spanish paella (rice, sausage, seafood, and chicken, cooked in an open pan) and West African jollof (which, while often lacking protein, is heavy on tomatoes, onions, and spices). The base for jambalaya's flavor, as in much of Spanish cooking, comes from sofrito, a trinity of finely chopped onion, celery, and bell pepper. Bay leaf, cayenne, and garlic are also commonly seen as base layers. For the protein, chicken, andouille (or other pork sausages), and shrimp or crawfish are all fair game.

15 Slow-Cooker Apple Recipes for When You Come Home From the Orchard

  15 Slow-Cooker Apple Recipes for When You Come Home From the Orchard Don't know what to do with a ten-pound bag of apples? Your slow-cooker can help.The great thing is apples are so versatile, so these slow-cooker recipes range from breakfast to dinner to dessert to condiments. There’s apple crisp for sweets fans, apple oatmeal for early risers, apple pulled pork for meat fanatics, and a perfect apple butter recipe for anyone who wants to spread apple flavor on pretty much everything. (And hey, if you’re not feeling apple recipes this fall, we’ve got you covered with pumpkin dinner recipes, instead.

Creole jambalaya includes tomatoes—possibly a sub for paella’s saffron (a once out-of-reach ingredient for southern Louisianans). Cajun jambalaya, found more frequently further outside of New Orleans, omits tomatoes, yielding distinctly cooked grains, garnished with chicken, sausage, and later, spring onions. Cajun jambalaya has a cleaner umami-forward result, without the soupy bits I’d come to associate with the dish. One taste of a perfectly executed Cajun jambalaya, fat- and flavor-forward (in just the right amounts), and I was in.

I'm definitely a rare late adopter of jambalaya's fandom: New Orleans chefs from Leah Chase to Paul Prudhomme have famed versions, and if the countless covers of country singer Hank Williams's 1952 hit release Jambalaya on the Bayou are any indication, the dish's popularity goes way beyond the food world.

Modern cooks know this: get the recipe right, and you’ve got a one-pot-repeat winner. Here’s how to master this low-work, high-reward classic.

Jack Daniels’ New Apple Whiskey Is Begging To Be Added To Hot Toddies This Fall

  Jack Daniels’ New Apple Whiskey Is Begging To Be Added To Hot Toddies This Fall Spiking alllll the cider with this one.The new spirit is made up of classic whiskey mixed with apple liqueur making it a bold and sweet apple-flavored whiskey. If you've ever had an Apple Jack, which if you haven't, I must ask that you do so immediately, you know that apple and whiskey pair really well together. But then again, what pairs badly with whiskey? This also sounds like it would be great in a hot toddy, in spiked cider, with soda and lemon juice (what they're calling a Jack Apple Fizz) or just on the rocks.

Season Up

Season the chicken with salt and cayenne instead of black pepper. Rub a couple smashed cloves of garlic all over the chicken skin for even more flavor. Then, sear the skin in vegetable oil over medium heat, taking care to get deep golden browning on all sides—which translates to flavor, and a more appealing finishing look.

Flex the Holy Trinity

Remove the chicken to a plate, and use the fat in the pot to cook the onion, green bell pepper, garlic, and bay leaves. Traditional jambalaya relies on the holy trinity of onion, pepper, and celery—but skipping celery here allows the heat and roasty schmaltz flavor of the cayenne and chicken fat to come forward. Cook until the onions are golden, stirring to avoid deep browning or charred spots, about 8 to 10 minutes.

All in One Pot

Unlike many famous New Orleans dishes, which are served over white rice, the beauty of jambalaya is that the rice goes into the pot with the meat and spices. Add the rice and andouille at the same time, stirring to toast the grains in the fat, about 15 minutes, before any liquid goes in.

Simmer Down

Pour in the chicken broth and stir well, scraping the bottom of the pot to release the brown bits (which equal flavor) and coax the luscious finish from the dish.

Final Stretch

Add the chicken back to the pot along with the stock. Reduce the heat to a low simmer, cover, and cook until the rice has plumped and absorbed all the stock, and the chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes. At the finish, fluff the rice with a fork and tweak the seasoning. Here is where you could add optional shrimp or crawfish, stirring into the dish for a few minutes, until they are just pink throughout.

Stove-to-Table
