Finallywroteitdown Chicken, Sausage and Shrimp Jambalaya

I've been making a kind of freestyle jambalaya for years; as the title says, I've finally written down a basic recipe for my creation. But don't let it end here; jambalaya is a dish that you can truly play around with. You could also add bell pepper at the point where you cook the onions and garlic (part of the holy Cajun trinity but I don't like cooked green pepper so I sacreligiously omit it); or use andouille sausage or add cubed pork or ham to the dish. My only real contingency is that you don't use beef, though... no place for that in jambalaya, IMHO. And as much as I love tomatoes, I do not care for them in my jambalaya, either.
