Since starting meal planning again I’ve been trying to find healthy family friendly meal ideas and have found myself looking at Slimming World recipes more often. We’re not officially following the plan but the recipes sound that we’re probably using SW recipes three or four times a week.

As soon as I found this Slimming World Chicken Jambalaya recipe I knew my hubby would love it. I don’t like peppers so we skipped them from the recipe but normally the hubby will cook them separately and add then at the end. This recipe is for four so I halved the ingredients as I was only cooking for us two.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 red pepper, 1 green pepper and 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and chopped into chunks
  • 2 courgettes, chopped into chunks
  • 4 skinless chicken breasts, chopped into chunks
  • 1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp dried thyme
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Splash of tabasco
  • 350g long grain rice, dried
  • 1 litre of chicken stock
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Fresh chopped parsley, to serve
  1. Spray a large, deep non-stick frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. I just used our wok as our frying pan wasn't quite big enough.
  2. Add the onion, garlic and chicken and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pan and season well.
  4. Bring to the boil then cover the pan and simmer gently for 15-20 minutes or until the stock is almost absorbed and the rice is tender.
  5. Serve scattered with parsley.

We really enjoyed this meal and it was so filling we the hubby ended up taking the leftovers to work for lunch.

    I have not had jambalya for so long and am trying to shed the stones so may well give this one a try.

    This looks really delicious and I like that it’s a low fat recipe too. Proves you don’t need fat to add flavour. I’ve pinned to come back to this at a later date. Yum!

    This looks immense! Coupled with the fact that I’ve got a bit of a thing for crunch veg at the moment too – god bless slimming world

    YUMMY! Jambalaya is one of my favourite meals. I do a version that is definitely not friendly to any type of diets as I include lots of Chorizo in mine. I like the idea of having courgettes in there though so I will pinch that for future 🙂
