Chicken and Sausage Skillet Supper

"This is a great weeknight dish. Only one skillet to clean afterwards! I adapted this from a recipe that I found in Southern Living years ago. Of course you can use turkey or chicken sausage and it doesn't change the flavor. If I don't have any left-over chicken then I buy a roasted one from the store."

  1. This was a great tasting dish. Super easy to make with using one skillet only to wash. I used Hot Italian bulk sausage because I had some leftover to use up and my can of tomatoes did not have green chilies in it, but the spice of the sausage made up for it. Wanted to use what I had in the pantry. The flavor was really delicious. I found I had to add extra broth to cook the rice though. I think this dish would work with shrimps as well and omit the chicken or half and half. Thanks for posting the recipe Leslulu, it was a great meal.
