Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Season chicken thighs and drumsticks all over with 1 tsp (5 mL) Cajun seasoning. Arrange on a parchment-paper lined baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 min. or until just cooked through. Remove skin before shredding meat from bone; discard bones.

  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in Dutch oven or large saucepan set over medium heat. Add Trinity Mix, thyme and remaining Cajun seasoning and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 5 min. or until vegetables soften.

  3. Stir in rice and cook, stirring for 1 to 2 min. Stir in broth; bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 10 minutes. Stir in shrimp, shredded chicken and continue to cook for 5 min. or until rice absorbs liquid and shrimp turn pink. Remove from heat and let stand covered for 5 min.; remove and discard thyme.

  4. Stir in parsley and serve with lemon and hot sauce, if using.

Tip

Once the rice is added, don’t stir it too often, as it will break up the long grains.
