½ tsp each: kosher salt, smoked paprika, oregano, and black pepper

pinch cayenne pepper

3 Andouille or other spicy sausages, sliced in thirds

1 small onion, finely diced

a few shakes of Worcestershire Sauce

3 cups chicken stock

1 cup diced canned tomatoes

1 lb 16/20 shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • Massage all spices into chicken meat; set aside

  • In a large skillet with a lid, fry sausage in a little canola oil until ends are crisp and some of the fat has rendered off; remove

  • Add onion, celery and peppers; sauté until soft but not browned

  • Add jalapenos and garlic and sauté 1 minutes

  • Add rice, bay leaves and Worcestershire

  • Return sausage to pan along with chicken; add stock and tomatoes. Stir well, bring to a boil, cover and then turn down to a low simmer
