2 fully cooked chicken sausage Links (about 6 oz) sliced into coins – I used Trader Joe’s Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage
One 14.5-oz. can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, no salt added
3/4 cup onion, chopped
1 large green bell pepper, seeded, chopped – I used yellow
1 cup celery, chopped
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
1 tbsp. garlic, minced
1 tsp. cajun seasoning
1/2 tsp. hot sauce, or more to taste
1/4 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. dried thyme
6 oz. raw shrimp, tails removed, deveined, chopped
Add all ingredients except shrimp to a large pot on the stove. Mix thoroughly. Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to medium low. Cover and simmer until vegetables are tender and rice is fluffy, about 35 minutes.
Add shrimp and re-cover. Continue to cook until shrimp are tender and cooked through, about 6 minutes.
If you like, season to taste with salt, black pepper, and additional hot sauce. Serve and enjoy!!!
