Step 1

Heat 1.5 tbsp oil in large stockpot over medium heat. Add chicken thighs to skillet, smooth side down; cook for 5 minutes or until you can easily flip over the chicken. Flip and continue to cook for 6-7 more minutes or until no longer pink.

Step 2

Melt butter in a large stockpot or dutch oven set over medium-high heat. Brown sausage on both sides.

Step 3

Stir in onions, green pepper, celery, white parts of green onions, and garlic. Stir occasionally and cook about 5 minutes or until clear.

Step 4

Add crushed tomatoes, tomato puree, salt, pepper, cayenne, thyme, Tony Chachere Creole Seasoning, and bay leaf. Stir 2 minutes.

Step 5

Pour in chicken stock and stir to combine. Stir in pepper sauce or red pepper flakes.

Step 6

Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer. I reduced heat to a level 2/3 on the stovetop.

Step 7

Cook uncovered until liquid is reduced by 1/3 or about 1 hour.

Step 8

Bring jambalaya to a boil. Stir in 2 cups uncooked rice then reduce heat to medium. Stirring occasionally, cook 15-25 minutes, or until rice is done. *NOTE* If rice is not done and liquid is gone, stir in 1/4 cup water at a time.

Step 9

Stir in remaining green onions. Serve with hot sauce if desired.
