Number of Servings: 6


    1/2 lb hot turkey sausage, removed from casing if needed
    2 lb chicken
    1 medium onion
    4 celery stalks
    1 green bell pepper
    2 1/2 cups chicken broth
    1 cup wild rice (180g)
    1 tsp black pepper
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp parsley
    2 tbsp sliced almonds (optional)




1 Preheat the oven to 375F.
3 Add the turkey sausage, and cook for 5 minutes until browned, stirring occasionally to break up the chunks. Transfer to a deep, square casserole dish.
4 Add the remaining oil to the skillet, then add the chicken and cook about 2 minutes per side until browned. Transfer to the casserole dish.
5 Add the onion, celery and bell pepper to the skillet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, for 3-5 minutes until the vegetables are crisp-tender.
6 Add the chicken broth to the skillet and bring to a simmer.
7 Pour the rice into the casserole dish over the sausage and chicken, then pour the contents of the skillet into the casserole dish.
8 Stir to combine, then cover and bake for 20 minutes, then uncover and bake for 15-20 minutes more until the rice is tender and the chicken is cooked through.
9 Top with parsley and almonds, if desired, and serve.
