Directions

Trim the fat from the chicken thighs and then cut them into quarters. Season them with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Heat up a large pot, add olive oil, and brown the chicken on each side. Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon, set aside and then brown the sausage. Remove the sausage and then sauté the peppers, onions, and celery. Do not drain the grease between each item. Use it to sauté the next item and add flavor to the final dish. Sauté the vegetables until, soft. One minute before they are done add the garlic. Then add the chicken, sausage, broth, rice and seasonings. Cover, bring to a boil, and then simmer for 15 minutes.
