  1. Heat oil in a heavy Dutch oven over medium high heat. Sear chicken on all sides until browned. Stir in dirty rice mix and water. Stir in crawfish, shrimp, sausage, mushrooms, bell pepper, onion and garlic. Bring mixture to a boil, and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until rice is tender, and moisture is absorbed, 25 to 30 minutes.

I made this for my mom for mother's day. To reduce fat, I used 1 lb of boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into chunks and 1lb of medium large cooked shrimp. I also used one box of dirty rice mix and one of red beans & rice. It also came in handy to not use all of the seasoning pack. I also used Pam garlic spray instead of cloves of garlic. This is not a recipe for those who like bland foods! :-)



It's good, most Paellas are bland - this has FLAVOR!



Very flavorful, but the recipe calls for too much meat.
