Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil I used olive
  • 1 cup Green bell pepper diced (about 1 )
  • 1 cup Small onion diced (about 1/2 )
  • 2 Celery ribs diced
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1/2 Pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 6 Ounces Andouille sausage cut into rounds
  • 1 Tbsp Tomato paste
  • 3/4 Cup Long grain white rice
  • 1 1/2 Cups Chicken broth
  • 1 Cup diced tomatoes undrained
  • 1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1 Bay leaf

Instructions

  1. Add oil to a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high eat. When the oil is hot, add the bell pepper, onion, celery and garlic to the pot. Cook until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the chicken, andouille, and tomato paste. Stir around the mix with the other ingredients and break up the tomato paste.
  3. Add the white rich and stir it around until lightly toasted.
  4. Stir in the chicken broth, diced tomatoes, Cajun seasoning, and bay leaf.
  5. Cover, and let it cook over low heat for 30 minutes, or until rice is cooked through and the liquid has been completely absorbed.* Stir every 10 minutes or so to prevent the rice from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  6. Serve hot!

Recipe Notes

* Mine took a little longer than 30 minutes, more like 45
** Although the book said it made two servings, we each got 2 meals out of this, so it depends on how much you eat!
