Ingredients

Dirty Rice:
Chicken:

Directions

For the dirty rice: Combine 2 cups of the chicken broth and the rice, garlic, bay leaf and thyme bundle in a medium pot. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer until the rice is tender, about 15 minutes. Remove the bay leaf and thyme; fluff the rice.

Heat the oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the celery, onions and bell peppers and sweat the vegetables for about 5 minutes. Add the chicken hearts and livers, andouille and corn; cook until browned. Add the remaining 1 cup chicken broth and scrape the bottom of the pan to loosen any browned bits. Stir in the kidney beans. Add the garlic powder, paprika, cayenne, onion powder, oregano, thyme, red pepper flakes and 2 teaspoons salt. Simmer until the liquid reduces and everything is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Add the rice to the skillet and stir to combine. Remove from the heat. Sprinkle with the sliced scallions.

For the chicken: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large ovenproof saute pan over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the chicken breasts with salt all over and place them skin-side down in the pan. Sear both sides until golden brown. Add the butter and Worcestershire sauce and baste the chicken for a minute. With the breasts skin-side down, transfer the pan to the oven and cook until the internal temperature reads 160 degrees F, 10 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes.

Prepare an ice water bath in a bowl. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans to the pot and cook until bright green, about 3 minutes. Remove the green beans and immediately shock them in the ice bath to stop cooking; drain. Heat the remaining tablespoon oil in a medium saute pan over medium heat. Add the green beans and cook until warmed through and tender.

Serve the chicken with green beans and dirty rice.
