  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and finely chopped
  • 1 pound andouille sausage, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

  • 2 cups homemade or low-sodium store-bought chicken stock
  • 3/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 can (14 ounces) crushed tomatoes with juice
  • 1 cup long-grain rice

Directions

  2. Add vegetables to pot. Cook, stirring, 5 minutes. Add sausage; cook 3 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 minute. Stir in stock, Old Bay, tomatoes, and 1/2 cup water; bring to a boil.
