Andouille sausage is fabulous. It’s one of those things that just works on its own. You can take it out of the package, put it with just about anything, and have a delicious meal. It also has just the right amount of spice. It adds flavor without being so hot that my kids yell about it.

I would like to say something now …. I just wrote all those sentences without saying love. I wanted so badly to say “I love Andouille sausage”, but my editor (aka my husband), says that I write love too much in these posts. I have taken his advice to heart, and will be cutting back. But I want to say something first …. I love a lot of things. Life is good. I see no reason that anyone should hold back their affection for food.

Back to the dinner. One pot meals make me happy. If I can prepare a meal in one pot that means; a.) I have much less to clean, b.) as with this recipe, it’s probably quick to prepare, and c.) I have more time to play with my kids (i.e. change diapers and snuggle during Paw Patrol).

Another thing about one pot meals; they’re generally tasty. Put all those delicious ingredients in one dish, and it’s sure to be a hit. This Andouille sausage chicken and rice was a hit for my whole family. In addition, my dear friend from South Carolina came to visit the weekend I made this, and she thoroughly enjoyed it as well. So 5 out of 5 people who ate this recommend you make it and eat it asap.

I love Andouille sausage. Sorry. I couldn’t hold back. I needed to say it.
