Dinnertime in our household is always one of the favorite times of day. What’s not to love about comforting scents wafting through the house, as the family gathers to catch up on the day and fill their bellies with one of mom’s home-cooked meals?

Safeway is one of my favorite grocery stores to shop at, for many reasons. Not only do I love their selection brands and products (and I love their organic choices!), I appreciate that they frequently have money-saving specials on my favorite products. There is currently a great deal on Hillshire Farm products, so naturally I headed to Safeway to take advantage of this!

Safeway has an impressive selection of Hillshire Farm products, including the Rope Smoked Sausage which I use in my Jambalaya recipe (one of my family’s favorite meals)!

When I make this Jambalaya recipe I always use Hillshire Farm Rope Smoked Sausage. I love the rich flavor, excellent quality of this sausage. Others just do not compare (trust me, I have tried!).


Smoked Sausage Jambalaya


1 package Hillshire Farm Rope Smoked Sausage (cut into slices)
1 lb. shrimp/prawns (shelled and deveined)
1 large chicken breast (cut into 3/4″ pieces)
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
3 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cups white converted Rice
1 can diced tomatoes
1 medium onion chopped
4-5 cloves of garlic chopped
3 green onions sliced
1/2 cup chopped fresh chopped parsley
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. paprika
1 2 tsp. Creole Seasononing
Olive Oil



Add olive oil to large skillet and heat to medium. Add yellow onion and garlic and saute until soft (about 2 minutes). Combine shrimp, chicken, sausage and add to skillet. Mix thoroughly and heat through, then add chicken stock, rice, diced tomatoes, cream of chicken soup, creole seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika. Stir until blended and add parsley and green onions. Cover and simmer for approximately 20 minutes (or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender and creamy).


Serve with garlic bread and salad for the perfect dinner! You can also add a dollop of sour cream on top for added flavor.

  1. Looks a great recipe- chocked full of nutrition and easy to make. I’ve actually never made jambalaya, but I think we’d love it. I’ve had it before in restaurants, and Hubby and I really like Creole flavors.

  2. This is a really good deal at Safeway and I like Hillshire Farm’s new sausage and I like the savings that I can get at Safeway on these sausages. And I really like your recipe for Jambalaya, it is easy to make and looks delicious. I will have to make this soon!

  3. Sandra VanHoey on

    Thanks for sharing this recipe, it sounds terrific. Seems whenever we buy their sausage we prepare the same way. Would love to try this

  4. Stephanie Phelps on

    I always made mine from a box but I love this recipe and sounds a lot better than my box kind I think I will be making this next week!

  5. I have never made or ate jambalaya before so I guess that would be my new recipe of the week. I don’t know why I have never tried it because Hillshire Sausage is a favorite in this house.

  6. Christine Mayfield on

    We love Jambalaya in this household. I have never added cream of chicken to it. I think that may give it a creamier taste than old recipe.

  7. we don’t have a safe way near us, but i have always wanted to make a jambalaya! i can never find creole seasoning either, i just end up making my own. just made chicken soup for dinner though!

  8. i use hillshire farm as my go to meal meat, i use it to make fried rice especially. or just mix up with potatoes, peppers and beans.

  9. It looks so delicious I want to go to the store right now and get some Hillshire Farm Rope Smoked Sausage and make it. Thanks for reminding me to look for it next time I shop.

  10. i love this sausage just plain on white bread, it’d never make it in the house long enough to get into the jambalaya…but i do love jambalaya.

  11. I have honestly never heard of Jambalaya, but it does sound quite good! My family purchases Hillshire farm smoked sausage on occasion, so perhaps I’ll give this a try! No Safeway stores near me though πŸ™

  12. Your recipe for Jambalaya sounds great never thought of using cream of chicken soup in it, but I bet that it makes it smoother and thickens the Jambalaya, think I will try this

  13. Our grocery store has Hillshire Farms on sale quite a bit…it’s usually buy 3 for $10 and you can pick whatever you want. I have never made jambalaya though….I always thought it was one of those dishes best sitting on the stove/crockpot for hours. I will have to try this.

  14. I’m thinking this recipe is definitely better than the stuff that comes in the box. It sounds really good and we love jambalaya at my house. Thanks.

  15. Hillshire is a sausage that I buy all the time. I have never made jambalay before but have eaten it. I will have to make it as we like rice too but I may cut down on the spices because of my stomach. thanks for the recipe . I pinned it too

  16. Rebecca Parsons on

    I love Jambalaya and to me making it is so much fun. I like mine a bit spicy too. Ok now I want to make some for dinner. I have some Hillshire Farm Smoke Sausage in my freezer right now..

  17. dont know if we have a safeway if we do i dont know where it is.
    as far as the recipe for jambalaya i’m sure alot of people are going to love it
    but not me i hate sausage..lol

  18. When we lived in Oregon I loved shopping at Safeway. Sadly they don’t have any stores here in the South where i live. I have never cooked with Hilshire Farm sausage before, nor have I had Jambalaya. But it certainly does look delicious.

  19. I’ve never had Jambalaya before but that looks really tasty and I love Hillshire Farm meats so I am sure it’s delicious.

  20. I’d like to try this but I don’t know if Hillshire Farms makes turkey sausage… I have seen it in other brands and I’d prefer to use that as it is lower fat content πŸ™‚ I love jambalaya! We don’t have a Safeway here but I’d still buy the things to make the recipe πŸ™‚ Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  21. Margaret Peckham on

    I leave out the shrimp (allergies) but the rest looks the same as my jambalaya recipe!! Only Hillshire Farms sausage goes in my jambalaya!!

  22. Great deal on Hillshire Farm, and if Safeway was in my area, I’d take advantage of it, for sure. One of my local stores often has buy-one-get-one deals on Hillshire Farm products, and I stock up on their turkey kielbasa. I love the turkey variety because it’s lower in fat and I don’t have to pre-cook it to drain off the fat before I add it to rice dishes or casseroles.

  23. Theresa Jenkins on

    my family likes food with a lot of flavor. the only thing I see in this recipe that would put it over the edge for me and make it too spicy hot would be >>1 2 tsp. Creole Seasononing>>>is that 1/2, 1 to 2 or 12 tsp.??

  24. Recipe looks yummy! I find recipes with the Hillshire Farms sausage turn out even better if you smoke some when you grill and use it throughout the week!

  25. Eileen Richter on

    I have never tasted Jambalaya but it looks so warm and filling a meal for a cold day in Wisconsin! My guys would probably love it kicked up a notch with seasoning.

  26. Wow! That looks so yummy and pretty easy to whip together! I will have to keep this one in mind for a nice, cold night!

  27. Sounds really yummy. Tony Cacheres is a great addition to any Creole/Cajun recipe. And of course, Hillshire Farms products are always good.

  28. Michelle Spayde on

    I would love to make this without the shrimp! I was looking for the Pinterest button to PIN it, but I’m not seeing it. I tweeted it instead, so hopefully I’ll be able to find my tweet. πŸ™‚

  29. I love jambalaya so much, and I love Hillshire sausage as well. I could eat that sausage for every meal! I will have to try out this recipe this winter.

  30. love jambalaya, I’ve tried it once when we had a New Orleans/LA theme a few years back at a restaurant and it was really good…
