Shrimp and Chicken Jambalaya


This is the first time I tried a jambalaya not from a box. It turned out real good and now we may try my mother in laws next time. We got this from a book called Beyond Grits and Gravy and it has some nice recipes in it.
2 medium onions chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
2 ribs celery chopped
1 large green pepper chopped
2/3 cups uncooked rice
2 cups chicken broth
8 oz chicken cooked and cubed
1 16 oz can stewed tomatoes
8 oz shrimp
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
1/4 pepper
salt to taste
and we added some red pepper flakes because we like it hot and a little Zaterans.
In hot (large) skillet cook onions,garlic,celery, and bell pepper until tender.
Add remaining ingredients
Bring to a boil, cover reduce heat and simmer 25 minutes or till rice is done, stirring occasionally.
