Low Carb Jambalaya

5 ratings

This Low Carb Jambalaya is a great make-ahead meal. Full of various proteins and spicy heat, this one is sure to satisfy your hunger. Savory Andouille sausage and chicken breast are browned in avocado oil and then simmered in crushed tomatoes, chicken broth, and spices like cayenne, red pepper flakes, fresh thyme, and oregano.

What can I serve with Jambalaya?

A side of cauliflower rice is an ideal pairing to soak up the delicious stew. A side dish of garlic sauteed kale or Swiss chard would also be a great option.

Is this dish spicy?

This dish is traditionally spicy, and the recipe below has a medium heat level. Feel free to adjust the red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper to your liking. Remember, you can always add heat, but you can’t take it out! No heat can be added to the dish but can be added at the table in the form of hot sauce so guests can tailor to their unique tastes.

Can I use chicken thighs?

Yes, feel free to use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts, especially if you are trying to increase dietary fats.

    This is Gumbo. Jambalaya is a rice dish it is not served over rice.... everything is cooked IN the rice. Still looks good though.

      Lee & Perkins Worcestershire is 1 carb per teaspoon Worcestershire is 1 carb per teaspoon Recipe requires 2tsp. of Worcestershire for 8 servings which works out to 0.25 carb per serving....

        Worcestershire sauce is NOT keto!

          As long as your mindful of the carbs in an item (in this case a very small amount of Worcestershire sauce) the effects is negligible on blood glucose levels and therefore is Keto.
