As many of you know, I am a (HAH) Hearts at Home Blogger. Each month we join together for a “blog hop” on the third Thursday about a specific topic or challenge. This month’s challenge is to share a favorite recipe.

I thought long and hard about this, because some of my recipes are a family secret, you know! But I came across one that is not only a family favorite, super yummy, but also one that I don’t mind sharing the secret with all of you! So get in touch with your inner Cajun cook and try out my version of . . .



1 lb. cooked chicken*

2 cups water

1 ½ tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

1/2 lb. ground sausage**

1/2 tsp. dried thyme

Dash garlic

1 cup uncooked rice

1 med. onion diced

1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies

In a dutch oven, brown sausage, breaking it up into bite sized chunks. Reserve 1 tablespoon of oil in bottom of dutch oven. Remove sausage to a paper towel to absorb excess oil. In same dutch oven, place chicken, onion, salt, pepper in two cups of water, bringing to a boil and then simmering. Return sausage to dutch oven. Add rice, tomatoes, and the rest of spices. Cook until rice is tender. Enjoy!

I hope you try this out. Then come on back and tell me what you and your family thinks!

*Shrimp can be substituted for chicken

**sliced sausage links can be substituted for ground sausage
