If you know me, then you would know that I like to cook a bit. I don’t do much cooking inside on the stove, I’m mostly an outside grill master. Or a master of the fish fryer. But when I do stay inside and cook something up, it’s usually pretty good.
I’d like to introduce to you the Copeland Cajun Jambalaya!

- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
- 8 ounces kielbasa, diced

- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
