1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 teaspoon salt, divided
3/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
1/4 teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup sliced green onion
1 cup sliced celery
1 cup sliced green pepper
1/2 cup sliced sweet red pepper
1/2 pound fully cooked smoked sausage, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 cup uncooked long grain rice
1 garlic clove, minced
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cups chicken broth
Sprinkle chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and paprika. In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil over medium-high heat until juices run clear. Remove chicken and set aside.
In the same saucepan, saute the onions, celery and peppers over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Stir in the sausage, rice, garlic, cayenne, chicken and remaining salt and pepper. Add broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork.
