  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts cut in 1 inch cubes
  • 1 pound sausage sliced
  • 2 large white onions chopped
  • 2 medium bell peppers chopped
  • 1 cup green onions chopped
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp Oregano
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tsp red pepper
  • 3 cups white rice
  • 6 cups water


  • Using a dutch oven, pour in the vegetable oil and warm it up over a medium heat. Pour in the chopped green onions, chopped white onions, chopped bell pepper, red pepper, and 2 tsp of the cayenne pepper. Saute the vegetables over medium heat for about 20 minutes.
  • Add in the sliced sausage and continue to saute for about 10-12 minutes. Constantly stirring.
  • While the veggies and sausage are cooking, sprinkle the salt, remaining tsp of cayenne, white pepper, and oregano over the chicken.
  • Once the sausage has been cooked, add in the seasoned chicken breasts and cook for 8-10 minutes, constantly stirring.
  • Pour the rice into the chicken and sausage mixture and stir to coat really well, for about 2 minutes.
  • Turn the heat down to medium/low and then add the 6 cups of water, stir, and then cover for the remaining 30 to 35 minutes. Do not stir for 30 minutes. You may have to cook a little longer if you are using a brown rice in this recipe. Cook until all of the water is gone and the rice is fully cooked.
  • Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
