Defrost 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts and 4 thighs in the microwave. Cut into bite size pieces and saute in 3 Tbs. olive oil. Add 3 cut-up spicy smoked sausage and brown. Add 1 onion, 1 green pepper and a couple of stalks celery (I was out of celery, so I used celery salt instead of regular salt when seasoning). Cook for 5 minutes, then add a mixture of cayenne, white and black pepper, dried thyme, rubbed sage, salt, minced garlic and a couple of bay leaves. Add 1 cup tomato sauce, 2 cups chopped tomato, 3 cups raw brown rice and 6 cups chicken stock. Place in 350° oven and bake uncovered for 2 hours or until liquid is almost all absorbed and rice is tender. Stir and let rest 10 minutes. Delicious, and even better the next day.
I made this tonight for dinner and was pronounced the best husband ever.
