Mardis Gras Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya

I LOVE Jambalaya and all the robust flavors that come in every spoonful! I made this over the weekend to accompany my Whole Foods cornbread that I picked up on my trip over on Saturday.

Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya

2 cups brown rice, cooked but al dente

1 pkg Al Fresco Chicken Sausage (or any other all-natural sausage)

2 cups cooked chicken, chopped

½ onion, diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

2 celery stalks, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 large tomato, chopped

2 bay leaves

1 teaspoon thyme

1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning

2 bay leaves

2 cups beef broth

Salt and Pepper to taste

2 Tablespoons olive oil

Fresh parsley

Brown sausage in a large pot over medium heat for about 8-10 minutes. Remove from pot and set aside. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil to pot and cook onion, celery, red pepper, and garlic and cook 5-7 minutes. Add in tomatoes and cook another 3-5 minutes. Add bay leaves, thyme, Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper. Place sausage and chicken into pot and stir. Add in broth and rice and simmer 20 minutes. Pull out bay leaves. Spoon into bowls, top with fresh parsley, and serve.
