Ingredients
  • 3 ounces andouille sausage, finely chopped
  • 12 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 (10-oz.) cans unsalted diced tomatoes and green chiles
  • 2 teaspoons salt-free Cajun seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 (8.8-oz.) pouches precooked brown rice (such as Uncle Ben's)
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges
  • Hot sauce (optional)
Instructions
  1. Heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add onion mixture and sausage; cook 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Add chicken; cook 4 minutes or until chicken is lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
  2. Strain tomatoes in a colander over a bowl, reserving ¼ cup liquid. Add strained tomato mixture, ¼ cup reserved tomato liquid, Cajun seasoning, salt, and rice to pan, scraping pan with a wooden spoon to loosen browned bits. Cover pan, reduce heat to medium, and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove pan from heat; sprinkle with green onions. Divide rice mixture evenly among 4 bowls. Serve with lemon wedges and hot sauce, if desired.
