Want to use turkey link sausage

I'm going to be making a jambalaya recipe with chicken and turkey link sausage instead of andouille sausage. What I'm not sure about is, it's calling for 1/2 lb of sausage. Should I cut back on amount or leave it as is?

If someone could help by answering the question it would be greatly appreciated.

Really? I can add more to it? I didn't know that. WOW! That was actually going to be my next question. You must have been reading my mind. The recipe is calling for 1/2 lb of the sausage and 1 lb of chicken breast. What I was going to do then was, brown the 1.25 lb of turkey sausage and then slice it up into portions. Then for the chicken breasts, I was going to brown up four breasts and chop them. I'm thinking that four should be enough for a lb as the breasts I have are rather thin but they're wide like butterfly cut.

Thanks for your help!

The amount/types of meat(s) in Jambalaya is strictly a personal choice. I usually do three meats..Ham/Tasso, Sausage/Andouille, and Chicken/Duck. Ham is a very popular one to start with.

Have Fun!!
