This recipe comes from apinchofhealthy.com and I’ve made it many times over the years. It’s a one-pot meal with delicious flavors.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast or thighs, cut into apx. 1″ cubes
  • Cajun or Creole seasoning, about 2 tsp.
  • Salt and pepper
  • Oil (I use olive oil)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 large bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 lb. cured sausage links, sliced (I use andouille)
  • 1 14 oz. can diced tomatoes
  • Hot sauce (like Tabasco)
  • 3 cups chicken broth or stock
  • 1-1/2 cups jasmine rice
  • 2 green onions, sliced

Season the chicken with Cajun or Creole seasoning and salt and pepper. Heat a little bit of oil in a large pot. Add the seasoned chicken and stir fry until the chicken is no longer pink. Stir in the onion, bell pepper, and celery. Continue frying until the onion is translucent and the celery is no longer crisp.

Stir in the garlic and fry for another minute or so. Keep the pan over heat and stir in the thyme, bay leaf, sausage, and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in hot sauce to taste and chicken broth. Lastly, stir in the rice. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.

Reduce heat to low, cover the pan, and let simmer 15 minutes without taking off the lid. Remove lid and stir. Take a little bite. If the rice is not nearly done enough, cover and return to very low heat for another 5-8 minutes. If the rice is done, let the pot sit, covered yet unheated, for about 5 minutes. Stir. Sprinkle with green onion. Serve warm now. Serves 4-6 people.
