    3/4 cup olive oil
    1 cup flour
    3 cups chicken stock
    1.5 cups water
    1 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
    1 cup Minced celery
    3 Green (or red) peppers chopped
    3 14.5 oz cans of diced tomatoes (or 2.7lbs of fresh tomatoes and a 1/2 cup of water)
    1 cup minced onion
    1 tsp Thyme leaves
    2.5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast
    5 cups brown rice
    1/2 lb Hot Turkey Sausage
    1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
    2 tsp hot pepper sauce


Makes 14 1-1.5 cups servings

Brown chicken in skillet (salt, pepper, onion powder if you wish). Remove the chicken and let it cool so you can cut into bite sized pieces.

Combine Oil and flour in skillet and cook on low-medium heat until it turns into a brown roux. Stir often.

Add peppers, onions, and celery to roux and cook for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile in a large pot combine chicken stock, garlic, tomatoes, thyme, chicken, and sausage (cut into bite sized pieces), cayenne pepper, and pepper sauce. Bring to boil and then simmer.

Add vegetables to pot, stir in, and simmer for 45 minutes.

Add 4 cups of brown rice, stirring in and continue simmering. Check rice cooking instructions for how long to simmer, whether to cover the pot, etc. I have found that it takes 15-20 minutes covered for the rice to cook through. I save the 5th cup of rice in case I find the mixture too watery. I then add the rice and continue cooking on low heat until I like the consistency.

At this point you are done. I prefer to taste it and add more cayenne pepper, crushed red pepper, or other spices as I see fit..
