  • 1 14 oz. Pkg. Thomas Ragin’ Cajun Andouille Sausage cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper

  • 1 Large Onion
  • 3 Cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 2 Cups Chicken Stock or Broth

 The following should be added once the Chicken & Andouille Sausage dish is done and the heat is turned off.

  • 3 Tbsp. Basil
  • 3 Tbsp. Flat-leaf parsley

Directions:

  1. Coat the bottom of a heavy bottom pot with olive oil.
  2. Season the chicken with the salt, pepper and creole seasoning to taste, then place in the pot to brown the chicken. Once that is done, remove the chicken from the pot and set aside.
  3. Add andouille sausage to the pot and cook for about 5-7 minutes just until browned then remove the sausage and set aside with the chicken.
  4. Sauté the onions, red and green bell peppers for about 2 minutes, then add the garlic and continue to sauté until the vegetables are tender. Once the vegetables are tender, add the tomato paste to the pot and cook with the vegetables for about 3 minutes. There should be a nice coating on the bottom of the pot by this time.
  5. Add the chicken stock to deglaze the bottom of your pot until all of the brown bits and tomato paste comes up from the bottom. After the pot is thoroughly deglazed, add the chicken and sausage back to the pot then bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover the pot and simmer for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  6. NOTE: You can also deglaze your pot with a white wine for variation if you like prior to adding the chicken stock.
