Zack Oliver’s Jambalaya

When we interviewed NU football player Zack Oliver for our fall magazine, we discovered he is much more than a college quarterback — he is quite the cook. Raised in Baton Rouge, La., he loves the southern comfort food he grew up eating. Here is Zack’s recipe for one of his signature dishes and a cajun favorite: jambalaya. Just one bite and maybe you’ll be throwing like a Big Ten quarterback.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

Servings: 4 people (2 football players?)

Ingredients:
1 pound beef sausage, sliced
1 pound chicken, cooked
