This recipe asked for tasso which is a highly seasoned Louisiana specialty meat or substitute it with spicy Cajun andouille sausage or cooked spicy beef or pork sausage. Since both my 2 and 6 year olds don't like spicy food I just used regular sausage. It works, I still have the jambalaya texture and feel but not spicy.
I got it from Cooking Club.
6 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
3 tablespoons canola oil
8 oz. tasso, smoked andouille or other fully cooked spicy sausage, finely chopped
4 cups chopped onions
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup chopped celery
1 tablespoon minced garlic
3 cups lower-sodium chicken broth
2 cups basmati rice
4. Stir rice into sausage mixture; cook and stir over medium heat 3 minutes or until rice is coated with oil. Stir in hot broth. Return chicken and any accumulated juices to pot.
5. Bake, covered, 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Remove from oven; stir in tomatoes. Tuck shrimp into rice; spoon peas over top. Bake, covered, an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until shrimp turn pink and rice is tender.
