Adapted from Cooking Light. You can use Andouille, Kielbasa, or Italian Sausage. My first time making this, I used a venison sausage.

  2. Add bell pepper, onion, celery, and bay leaves; cook until vegetables are golden brown, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add chicken and next 8 ingredients (through garlic); cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add diced tomatoes and broth, and bring to a boil. Stir in rice.
  5. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes. Discard bay leaves. Stir in green onions.

Simply delish. I used polish sausage and fresh chicken breast cut into pieces. Didn't have celery on hand (didn't feel like going out to get some), so used fried zucchini that I added at the last minute. I also used an extra can of broth. Will certainly do this again. Having leftovers tonight for supper.

Made for "I Recommend" Recipe Tag. This was fantastic and so easy. The flavors were just right and we were able to get two meals out of it - my kind of dish! Cook once eat twice! Most definitely will make this again and maybe even add some shrimp. Thanks KelBel for a great recipe!

This dish was excellent. I made the recipe exactly except I used bone-in chicken, so I boiled and deboned before putting the dish together. It had so much flavor. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed. Will make it again.
