A staple in Louisiana, jambalaya is a delicious combination of meat — typically chicken and sausage — veggies, rice, and Creole seasonings. This crowd-pleasing, one-pot version skips the sausage, but not the classic flavor or the tummy-filling goodness.

Heat vegetable oil in a large pot, then sauté onions, green pepper, and garlic until tender. Add chicken and rice, stirring until well coated with oil. Add bay leaf, thyme, Creole seasoning, hot pepper sauce, tomatoes, and broth. Cover and simmer until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 30–40 minutes.
