Easy and good, Member Mornseer

We didn't have enough time to use the crockpot for this recipe, so we used a dutch oven on the stove top instead. We have a good rice cooker, so the long grain rice was cooked separately in that, and then we served the chicken over it. That worked just fine. We also used chicken breast rather than thighs, since that is what we had, along with leftover ham, and some smoked sausage. We browned the chicken, ham and sausage with the onions in a little olive oil, then added everything else, putting in the green pepper near the end. We like our food a bit spicy, and this recipe seemed rather bland at first, so we added about 1 1/2 Tbs of hot sauces (combination of two different ones), and some salt and pepper. That made for a nice, quick, flavorful meal. 20 minutes prep time, 45 minutes to an hour simmering in the dutch oven. Yum!
