One Pot Meal | Chicken and Sausage Dirty Rice

One pot meals are everything when it comes to getting dinner served quickly during the week. Monday – Thursday is the busiest part of our week so easy dinners are a must. They are a great way for me to prepare dinner ahead of time so I’ve been experimenting a bit with a few and this chicken and sausage dirty rice recipe will be added to the rotation indefinitely. It’s a great alternative to the famous beef and broccoli recipe we all love.

One Pot Chicken and Sausage Dirty Rice

    No temp was specified on the oven temp so I made a wild guess and did 350. Also improvised with a cast iron skillet and covered with foil to bake so we will see how it turns out. In the oven now!

    350 ended up too low. The rice wasn’t cooked all the way at 40 min so I bumped it up to 400 for another 20 min and that did the trick. Loved the meal, so did my hubs!

    You just keep getting better and better. I enjoy all that you do. I made the cream of mushroom soup and used the remainder of my frozen Turkey carcass from Thanksgiving to create a really rich broth that was really tasty!

    Thanks so much!!

    I don’t have a dutch oven..could I just transfer it all into a pan after sauteing everything?

      The only thing is it will disturb the rice. I have just done everything on the stove in a sauté pan. So just turn it down really low and let it all simmer on stove in a regular pan. It will take a little longer but it turns out fine. The main thing is you want the rice to cook all the way! Hope that made sense
