This is a family favorite that we often fix if we’re taking a meal to someone. It’s versatile. I can saute the meat and veggies on the stove, put everything in the slow cooker and fix the rice separately or we can just fix it all at once on the stove top.
1 pkg. smoked or andouille sausage, sliced.
3 chicken breasts, boiled in seasoned water (bay leaf, rosemary, thyme, salt, cayenne, onion and garlic) to make broth.
2 med onions, diced
3-4 cloves garlic, diced
2-3 cans diced Italian or plain tomatoes
1 cup Heinz ketchup
TONY’s Cajun seasoning (about 1 Tbsp)
Olive oil or bacon grease
3-4 bell peppers, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
Bunch parsley, chopped
Cayenne to taste, seasoned salt to taste, hot sauce to taste
Boil chicken. Cool and chop. In dutch oven, brown chicken and sausage in olive oil. Remove. Add more oil if necessary, saute veggies except tomatoes. Add meat back to pan, stir in tomatoes, ketchup, seasonings, parsley, chicken broth. Add more broth if needed. Simmer until flavors have blended, about 45 minutes- all day. Cook rice separately. Serve over rice. Or add rice to pan mixture and simmer until rice is done.
