One of my favorites is homemade jambalaya. Not really healthy, but definitely tasty, and definitely not a pastry.
It takes chicken, Andouille sausage, peanut oil, celery, green pepper, green onions, diced Italian-style tomatoes, Cajun seasoning, black pepper, cayenne pepper, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, rice and a bit of chicken broth.
Chop up the chicken, sausage, celery, green pepper and green onions pretty small. Heat some peanut oil in a pan; add chicken and stir fry until not pink anymore; remove and set aside. In the same pan, add more oil and the sausage. Add some Cajun seasoning, to taste; cook until done. Remove from pan and set aside. Still in the same pan, add the celery, green pepper and green onions, and stir fry a couple of minutes. Then add the tomatoes, black pepper, cayenne pepper, Worchestershire sauce and hot sauce; continue stir frying for a few more minutes. Add the chicken and sausage back in and stir. Then add a few cups of rice, and one small 20-oz can of chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer on low for about 20 minutes. Then serve and enjoy!
I don't have the recipe on-hand ATM but I could get the exact measurements it recommends. We like it meaty so we do like 2 chicken breasts, a pack of 3 sausages, with like 2-3 celery sticks, one large green pepper, one bunch of green onions and just one small can of diced tomatoes. And that serves three of us for two meals -- and we eat fairly large portions, I guess. I think it's only like a tablespoon of the Worchestershire sauce, and a teaspoon of the hot sauce. 2 cups of rice, and about 20 oz of broth. And of course season to taste with the Cajun seasoning and cayenne pepper; add just a bit if you don't like it spicy.
It's really good with biscuits IMO. We get the cheesy biscuit mix from Red Lobster -- it goes really well with the jambalaya.
