Recipe by LifeIsGood
READY IN: 1hr 20mins




  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Season the chicken pieces with 2 T Creole seasoning and the salt. Heat up the oil in a heavy lidded pot over med-high heat. Add the chicken and cool until they get browned on all sides, about 8-10 minutes (work in batches if the pot gets too crowded). Take the chicken out and set it aside.
  • Add the celery, bell peppers and onions and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Then add the sausage and ham and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the rice, stir to blend and cook for approximately 2 more minutes. Add the chicken stock, tomatoes, tomato paste, Worcestershire and the leftover 1 t of Creole seasoning, the pepper sauce, bay leaves and thyme. Stir this all together and return the chicken to the pot, nestling the pieces into the rice mixture.
  • Cover the pot and bake for about 40 minutes, or until the chicken and rice are tender. Remove from the oven and let stand for about 5 minutes (still covered). Garnish with the green onions and serve! You can also serve with additional hot sauce.
