- In small bowl, toss chicken with salt, pepper and thyme to coat evenly. Set aside. In large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Stir in onion, celery, bell peppers, salt and cayenne pepper. Saute vegetables until onions are translucent (5-7 minutes). Stir in garlic, sausage and seasoned chicken. Cook, stirring occasionally, 8 minutes. Stir in rice, tomato sauce, broth, wine and bay leaf; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, covered, stirring every 5 minutes to avoid burning, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed (23-27 minutes). Stir in shrimp. Remove pan from heat; let stand covered 2-3 minutes. Remove bay leaf. Stir in green onions. Serve.
