Recipe by rosie316
READY IN: 45mins




  • Heat 2 Tblsp of vegetable oil in a large, deep skillet or small dutch oven.
  • Add the cubed chicken, sprinkled with Cajun seasoning, and brown it until almost cooked thru, then add sliced smoked sausage (its pre-cooked).
  • Add the sliced onions, green bell peppers (I sometimes use a mix of green and red, depending what I have on hand), and celery (if using) and saute for 2 minutes.
  • Add the rice, chicken broth, salt, cayenne pepper (and any additional Cajun seasoning to taste).
  • Bring to a low boil, reduce heat to a low simmer and cover. (Extra broth may be needed toward the end of cooking).
  • Simmer for approx 20 minutes, or until rice is tender.
  • Stir once thru-out cooking time, but keep lid closed and make sure not to scorch the bottom).
  • Check for done-ness by tasting it! If the rice is cooked and the chicken isn't pink on the inside, it's done.
  • Sprinkle on a little fresh, chopped parsley and a pinch of "Gumbo File" after plating, (if desired). Serve and enjoy!
