Jambalaya

I had a neighbor from New Orleans who shared this recipe with me.

Jambalaya
3 Tbsp. butter
1 lb. smoked sausage
2 cups boneless chicken, cut into bite size pieces
2 bay leaves
1 c. chopped onion
1 c. chopped celery
1 c. chopped green pepper
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
½ c. tomato sauce
1 c. chopped tomatoes
2 ½ c. water
1 ½ c. uncooked rice
Cajun seasoning

Melt butter in a 4 qt. saucepan over high heat. Add sausage. Cook 4-5 min, stirring frequently. Add chicken and continue cooking until chicken is brown. Stir in bay leaves, Cajun seasoning (to taste) and ½ cup each onion, celery and peppers and garlic. Cook until vegetables start to soften, stirring often. Stir in tomato sauce and cook about 1 min. Add remaining onion, celery peppers and tomatoes. Stir in water and rice, mixing well. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer, covered over very low heat until rice it tender (about 30 min.) Stir well and remove bay leaves.
