This is a healthier version of a New Orleans classic, using brown rice and a lean ham. You can also choose to use the chicken instead of the andouille, but I like it spicy, so I'll keep it! Again, I found this on epicurious, and ended up loving it!! You may want to add more rice, as this will be rather saucy, but it's up to you!
