I cheated and used Zatarains Jambalya rice mix instead of plain rice. Used beef sausage since we don't eat pork, and added 4 cloves of garlic, and several shakes of Tony Chachere's creole seasoing for flavor to sautee the aromatics and meat. I sauteed the onions, garlic and celery, omitted the carrots, then added the chicken chunks, and sausage. Simmered the rice until al dente, and added the meat/aromatic mixture. So, I technically used 2 pans/pots. No biggie in my opinion. I only used 2 large chicken breasts, and omitted the mushrooms. It's definitely a great base recipe.
