Ingredients

    Chicken Leg Quarters - 10 pound bag
    Sliced Bryan's Smokey Hollow Smoked Sausage - 2 pounds
    Duced Onions - 2 medium
    Diced Garlic - 4 cloves
    Dried Parsley - 2 tablespoons
    Chicken Stock - 5 cups
    Tomato Sauce - 1 8 ounce can
    Diced Petite Tomatoes - 1 14.5 ounce can
    Rice - 2 cups raw
    Granulated Sugar - 1 tablespoon
    Chicken boullion cubes - 2
    Cayenne Pepper to taste
    Salt to taste

Directions

Chicken Stock:

Place 10 pound bag of leg quarters, 1 diced onion, 2 diced cloves of garlic, 2 chicken boullion cubes, 1 tablespoon dried parsley, cayenne pepper and salt to taste in a large stockpot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Lower heat to medium-high and boil uncovered until chicken is fully cooked (when skin pulls away from leg bone a bit). Remove chicken from stock. Strain stock and reserve five cups (with fat skimmed off). Debonechicken and dice meat. Discard skin and bones. Set meat aside.

Heat cast iron dutch oven on medium heat. Saute 2 pounds sliced sausage, 1 diced onion, and 2 cloves diced garlic until meat is cooked and seasonings are tender. Add 1 can tomato sauce, 1 can petite diced tomatoes, and 1 tablespoon sugar. Saute for about five minutes. Add five cups of reserved, skimmed chicken stock and raise heat to high until stock is boiling. Add diced chicken meat, 1 tablespoon dried parsley, salt and cayenne pepper to taste.

Add 2 cups raw rice to the mixture and return to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 25 minutes. Remove lid and gently fold mixture from bottom to top, careful not to stir. Stirring will make rice gunky. Cover and cook another 20 minutes or until rice is thoroughly cooked.

Yields 18 13/4-cup servings.
