1/4 cup olive oil

5 stalks celery, chopped 

1 Spanish onion, chopped 

1 green bell pepper, chopped 

24 medium shrimp, peeled and deveined 

1 pound chicken, diced 

2 tablespoons Creole seasoning 

8 cloves garlic, chopped 

3 bay leaves 

One 32-ounce can chopped tomatoes 

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce 

1 1/2 cups rice 

4 cups chicken stock 

1 pound andouille sausage, sliced 

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Hot sauce


  1. Heat the oil in a large stockpot set over high heat. Add the celery, onions and peppers, and saute until tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the shrimp, chicken and Creole seasoning in a large bowl and stir to coat.
  3. Add the garlic to the stockpot, and saute for 1 minute. Add the bay leaves, tomatoes and Worcestershire. Add the rice and stir to coat in the oil, then stir in the stock. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is tender and absorbs some of the liquid, about 15 minutes. Add the chicken, shrimp and sausage to the stockpot, and cook until the meat is cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and hot sauce. Serve hot.
