Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 pound andouille sausage (sliced in 1/4 inch slices)

1 pound chicken thighs (boneless and skinless, cut in small pieces, chicken breast works as well)

2 tablespoon butter

1 large onion (chopped)

2 stalks celery (diced)

5 cloves garlic (minced)

2 medium bell pepper (chopped, I used red and green)

1½ cups white rice (I used jasmine, long grain)

1 teaspoon dried oregano

2 bay leaves

salt and pepper to taste

1 teaspoon hot sauce

2 tablespoon cajun seasoning

14 ounce crushed tomatoes

3½ cups chicken broth (low sodium or no sodium added, or water)

1 pound large shrimp (peeled and deveined, I left the tails on)

2 green onions (chopped)

2 tablespoon fresh parsley (chopped)

Directions

In a large skillet or a dutch oven heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the andouille sausage and chicken thighs and cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the sausage has started to brown. Transfer to a plate. Add the 2 tbsp of butter and melt. To it add the onion, celery, peppers and garlic. Cook for 5 min until the onion softens. A

Stir in the rice and cook for a couple minutes just until it gets a bit toasty. Add dried oregano, bay leaves, salt, pepper, hot sauce, cajun seasoning, crushed tomatoes, chicken broth to the pot and stir. Cook until it comes to a boil, stirring occasionally. Turn down the heat to medium low, cover the Dutch oven and cook for 30 minutes or until the rice is cooked through. Stir every 5 minutes or so to make sure the rice doesn't burn or stick to the bottom of the pot.

Stir in the shrimp and okra and continue cooking until the shrimp is cooked through and pink.

Remove the bay leaves and discard. Add the sausage and chicken back to the pot and adjust with seasoning if needed, such as salt, pepper or additional cajun seasoning.

Serve garnished with green onions and parsley.
