8 servings
Preparation time: 30 minutes

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup diced onion
1 cup diced green bell pepper
1 cup diced celery
2 teaspoons minced garlic
4 teaspoons L&B Cajun Seasoning, divided
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups shredded L&B Rotisserie Chicken
3 andouille sausage links, cut into ¼-inch slices, then cut in half
3 cups 33% less sodium chicken broth
2 (14.5-ounce) cans diced tomatoes
2 cups cooked white rice


  1. In large Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. 
  2. Add onion, green pepper, celery, garlic, 2 teaspoons Cajun Seasoning and salt. Sauté until vegetables are tender, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle remaining Cajun seasoning over chicken and sausage; add to pan and continue cooking 3-5 minutes. 
  4. Add broth and tomatoes. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.

FoodE tip: This soup thickens as it sits, so extra chicken broth may need to be added when reheating leftovers.
