A classic dish from New Orleans that's made low carb and keto friendly by substituting regular rice with AMAZING LOKARB™ Rice. This recipe also takes a lot less time to prepare. If you are only cooking for two, this recipe is easily cut in half, and just as delicious. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of chicken stock 
  • 2 pouches of AMAZING LOKARB™ Rice (total 14oz)
  • 24 medium peeled, deveined shrimp, about ½ pound, chopped
  • ½ pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, diced
  • 1 tablespoon creole seasoning or other Cajun spice mixes
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped onions
  • ½ cup chopped green bell peppers
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • ½ cup chopped tomatoes
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • ½ pound Andouille or chorizo sausage, sliced
  • Chopped green onion for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Boil 1 cup of chicken stock in a small pot. Add the AMAZING LOKARB™ Rice to the stock and simmer for 3 - 4 minutes. Drain the rice and place in a hot frying pan to dry roast for 2 - 3 minutes to remove excess moisture. Set aside.
  2. Combine the shrimp, chicken, and spice mix in a bowl and toss to coat evenly. Set aside.
  3. Heat the oil over in a large, heavy pot over medium heat.
  4. Add the onions, peppers and celery, salt and pepper and cook, stirring, for 10 minutes, until softened.
  5. Add the garlic, tomatoes, bay leaves, Worcestershire and hot sauces. Cover and reduce heat to low and cook for 10 minutes.
  6. Stir in the shrimp and chicken mixture, and the sausage.
  7. Stir in the AMAZING LOKARB™ Rice, cover and cook for 10 minutes longer.
  8. Stir in the green onion before serving.
