Ingredients
  • 1 pound, andouille sausage (cut into ¼-inch-thick slices)
  • 3, chicken thighs (boneless)
  • 3, chicken breasts (boneless; skinless)
  • 4 cups, chicken broth
  • 1, onion (chopped)
  • ¼ cup, extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 bowl, cooked rice (hot)
  • 1 tablespoon, creole seasoning
  • 1, green bell pepper (cubed)
  • ½ cup, green onions (sliced)
  • ½ teaspoon, dried thyme
  • ¾ cup, all-purpose flour
  • 2, celery stalks (sliced)
  • 3, garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2, bay leaves
  • 4 cups, water
  • ¼ cup, celery leaves (finely chopped)
  • 1 pinch, filé powder (add more if needed)
  • 1 teaspoon, hot sauce
Method
Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the sausage slices to it. Cook them over medium heat, till they become brown and begin to crumble. Remove them from the pan; keep aside. Cut the chicken thighs along with the breast pieces into equal sizes. Cook them in the sausage's drippings over a medium flame, till they turn brown. Remove the chicken from the pan; set it aside.
Add some more olive oil to the pan. When the oil becomes hot, add the all-purpose flour to it. Stir it over medium heat by whisking it, continuously. The flour will soon become caramel colored. Then, add the chopped onions, minced garlic, and green bell pepper, into the pan. Sauté till the vegetables become tender. Pour the chicken broth and water into the pan; allow it to boil.
Now, put the chicken pieces, bay leaves, creole seasoning, and hot sauce, into the boiling mixture. Let the liquid simmer on low heat; stir occasionally. Then, add the sausages along with the green onions to the pan; sauté them for about 30 minutes. Take the pan off the heat and transfer the contents to a serving dish. Garnish the prepared dish with the celery leaves and filé powder. Serve it with the rice.
Black-Eyed Peas and Rice with Sausage
Ingredients
  • 6 ounces, andouille sausage
  • 1 medium-sized bag, long-grain rice
  • 1 can, black-eyed peas (rinsed; drained)

Method
Cook the rice in a microwave oven for 6 minutes on a high setting. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over a medium flame; add the chopped onions, minced garlic, and Cajun seasoning, to it. Cook for 2-4 minutes. Sauté continuously so that the garlic does not stick to the pan.

Then, add the sausage to the pan and allow the mixture to simmer on low heat for 5 minutes, till the rice becomes tender. Pour the Tabasco sauce into this. Transfer the contents of the pan to a bowl.
