  1. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  2. 8 ounces andouille sausage
  3. 2 boneless chicken thighs
  4. 1 onion chopped
  5. 1 green pepper chopped
  6. 3 ribs celery chopped
  7. 3 cloves garlic minced
  8. 1 1/2 cup rice
  9. 1/2 teaspoon salt optional
  10. 2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  11. 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  12. 1 can diced tomatoes (14 oz)
  13. 1 3/4 cup chicken broth (use 21/4 cups for 8 quart Instant Pot)
  14. 8 ounces cooked shrimp thawed
  15. 4 scallions sliced


  • Chop the onion, green pepper, celery and garlic. Then slice the andouille sausage and cut the chicken thighs into bite sized pieces.
  • Set the Instant Pot to Saute and add the olive oil. Allow it warm up for a few minutes.
  • Brown the andouille sausage for about 5 minutes, until it is nicely browned. Then remove the sausage and set it aside for now. Stir so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pot.
