Ingredients

  • 3 pounds skinless boneless chicken breast or thighs, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 12 oz Cajun sausage halved and sliced in 1 inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 celery stalks chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper chopped
  • 6 oz tomato paste
  • 28 oz diced tomatoes
  • 3 cups chicken broth

  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt to taste

  • Add tomato paste, tomatoes, chicken stock, and seasonings to pot. Return chicken to pot and add sausage. Bring stew to a boil.
