Recipe made by the Sausage Chefs


  • 1 package (13.5 ounces) JOHNSONVILLE Andouille Smoked Rope Sausage, cut into coin-slice pieces
  • 1 pound boneless chicken thighs, cut into dice-size pieces
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons Creole or Cajun seasoning
  • 2 ounces tomato paste
  • 2 cups crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups uncooked long grain converted rice
  • 1 pound cooked shrimp, thawed
  • Parsley and green onion, to garnish

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a skillet, cook and stir sausage and chicken in oil over a medium-high heat until browned; about 5 minutes. Add vegetables and Creole seasoning, cook and stir for 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  2. Add tomato paste, cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, bay leaf, sugar and salt. Simmer for 5 minutes to let the flavors blend; stirring occasionally.
  3. Add stock and bring to a boil. Adjust seasoning and make sure it is a little over seasoned because rice absorbs a lot of flavor. Add rice, stirring well. Return to a boil, cover and simmer on low for 10 minutes.
  4. Turn off heat, uncover and stir rice. Fold in shrimp and cover for 20-25 minutes to let rice finish cooking and shrimp heat through.
  5. Garnish with parsley and green onions.
