A classic New Orleans dish with chicken, sausage, and lots of flavorful veggies.

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 1 hour 30 minutes
Total: 1 hour 50 minutes



  • 1 lb chicken thighs, boneless and skinless
  • 1 lb smoked sausage, sliced
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 cup bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp dried thyme

  1. In a large Dutch oven or pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the chicken and sausage and cook until browned, about 7-10 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
