2 tablespoons olive oil
1-1/2 pounds diced chicken breast
1 package (13.5 ounces) Andouille sausage, sliced
1 tablespoon minced garlic

½ teaspoon granulated garlic
2 bay leaves
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 pound peeled and deveined shrimp, tails removed
3 cups cooked rice

In the American Kitchen® 6-quart Stockpot, cook the chicken, onion and peppers in oil until chicken is no longer pink and vegetables are tender. Add the sausage, tomatoes, broth, garlic, granulated onion, oregano, garlic salt, salt, pepper, granulated garlic and cayenne pepper. Simmer 15 minutes. Add the shrimp and cook an additional 5 minutes or until shrimp is pink. Add the rice, cook until heated through. Remove bay leaves before serving. Yield: 16 cups or approximately 10 servings.

Tips for Jambalaya Recipe
• Shrimp cooks quickly, so add it at the end of the recipe to prevent it from getting over cooked.
• Simmering the recipe helps blend all the flavors.
• Make prep quicker for this recipe by going to the salad bar at the grocery store and buy already chopped peppers and onions.
• This recipe freezes beautifully. Fill a resealable plastic bag three-fourths full. Freeze for up to one month.

    The brushed stainless steel on this pan is beautiful, and it’s size is perfect for making a big batch of soup or chili on a cold day. It’s got a solid bottom and a nice weight to it. I know this pot will last for years, and the possibilities for what I can make in it are endless.

    I make unsweetened grape and blueberry jam in the 6 Qt stockpot which I thicken by simmering until thick. I did not need a heat tamer. These pots did not scorch and I could simmer on medium low. Even unsweetened jam release natural sugars as they cook, which can scorch, but American Kitchen pots don’t get hot spots. I also made applesauce in the 8 qt and found I didn’t have to stir every second. I do not think you can find a better pot. They are built like bricks. Look beautiful. I love them

    Well first there is NO green “review tab” so I took a chance on “Add a review” (not green). I have used my 6 qt. pot one time and it worked as expected. The warnings about cleaning and care were a little daunting! My 80 year old pots (mother’s) finally gave up and I retired them (I’m 77) and never before had to “read” so much in a pamphlet before I made soup. Glad to have it.

    Hello Adrienne, Sorry about the tab mixup – we just recently changed the color of the tab to gray. Thanks for letting us know so we can update our email! And our use and care instructions are meant to be helpful not overwhelming. Hopefully you felt they were common sense and you enjoyed the experience and love your new cookware!

    I needed a new 6 qt pot and who would have thought that finding a suitable one would be so hard. I read many reviews of similar sized pots on the Web and was disappointed to find they all had problems. After researching for days I was getting discouraged. Then, by luck, your Web Site popped up and there was the pot I wanted and it was 25% off! It was the right size, right dimensions, and right construction. It was perfect! I ordered it on the spot. It is beautiful! Almost, too beautiful to use – but, that is what it is for. Yesterday I made a pot of spaghetti sauce and it worked perfectly. I look forward to using this pot for many meals to come. I am also considering purchasing more of your cookware.
