Cooking Instructions
1. In a deep skillet or sauté pan, brown the sausage pieces over medium-high heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Remove them to a plate. Drain off the fat, add the peanut oil and return the pan to medium-high heat. Brown the chicken pieces for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, then remove them to the same plate.

2. Return the pan to medium heat. Cook the onion, celery and pepper for 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic, rice and tomatoes.

3. Add the sausage and chicken. Add the stock, the thyme, bay leaves, salt, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce and shrimp. Bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer. Cover and cook for 20 minutes. Add more stock if it gets too dry.

4. Adjust the salt, hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce to taste. Stir in half of the scallions. Remove to a warm platter and garnish with the remaining scallions.
