1lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts

Remove from the skillet and set aside to rest for 5 minutes, once rested, cut chicken into bite-sized pieces.

Add onion, peppers, celery, and garlic, sauté until tender-crisp and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add spices and rice, stir to combine, and continue to sauté for 1 minute more. Add sausage, chicken, broth, and tomatoes, stir to combine and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the rice is tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Before serving, garnish with fresh parsley.
