PREPARATION
1.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
2.
Place a skillet over medium heat. Add the butter, chopped onions, bell peppers, and garlic. Sauté for 2-3 minutes to soften.
3.
Chop the chicken breast into 3/4 inch chunks and slice the andouille sausage into 1/2 rounds.
4.
In a 3 quart baking dish, combine the rice, sauteed veggies, frozen peas, chicken, sausage, canned tomatoes, cajun seasoning, and shredded cheddar cheese.
5.
Stir and pour the broth over the top. Gently shake the pan to make sure all the rice is submerged in the broth. Add the thyme sprigs then cover the pan tightly with foil and bake for 50-55 minutes, until the rice is tender.
6.
Remove the foil and the thyme sprigs. Fluff the rice with a fork.
7.
Sprinkle the chives over the top and serve.
