Ingredients

  • 1 tsp avocado or olive oil
  • 1 medium diced yellow onion
  • 1 medium diced green bell pepper
  • 4-5 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 ½ pounds raw chicken breast cut into small pieces
  • 14 oz Turkey Smoked Sausage, sliced into rounds (I use the brands Jennie O or Hillshire Farm)
  • 14.5 oz can fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 10.5 oz can 98% fat free cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain white rice *see notes*
  • cup water
  • 1 tbsp cajun seasoning (a little more if you love spice, a little less if you're not a fan of spice)
  • 1 tsp celery salt (celery seed will not work as a replacement)
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a hot skillet add heat oil. Then add green peppers, onions, and garlic. Sauté until softened.

    In a 9x13 or 3 quart casserole dish generously spray with cooking spray and then add cooked peppers, onions, and garlic, turkey sausage rounds, raw chicken breast, rice, cream of chicken soup, diced tomatoes, cajun seasoning, celery salt, and water. Mix together well.

    Cover casserole dish tightly with aluminum foil and place into preheated oven for one hour or until rice is cooked. Lightly fluff with a fork.

*Type of rice: this recipe calls for long grain white rice. This recipe will not work out using the same time/measurements if you use a different type of rice because different types of rice cook a little differently and need different amounts of liquid. 

*Check rice doneness if it still has a bit of a bite cover back up with til foil and cook for another 5-10 minutes.
