Chicken, rice, and greens fill one soulful pot in our family-friendly take on a Lowcountry staple. Quick-cooking basmati rice helps turn this recipe into dinner in no time and stays fluffy throughout the entire cooking process.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Cook sausage in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, stirring often, 5 to 7 minutes or until browned. Remove sausage using a slotted spoon; reserve drippings in Dutch oven. Drain sausage on paper towels.

Step 2

Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Add oil to hot drippings in Dutch oven, and cook chicken in hot drippings over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes or until done. Add onion and next 3 ingredients. Cook, stirring often, 5 to 7 minutes or until onion is tender. Stir in broth, next 3 ingredients, and sausage.

Step 3

Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove from heat; cover.

Step 4

Bake pilau at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes or until liquid is absorbed, stirring halfway through. Serve pilau immediately.

I made this for the first time tonight, and my family loved it. It is amazing that the collards stay crisp-tender rather than wilting down. The only modification I made was to omit the carrots since we do not like cooked carrots. It was still a very colorful dish. I will even consider serving this to dinner guests. This recipe is a keeper.

Used collards from the garden so had way less, so would use half the rice and broth next time, but was great, fresh-tasting and tasty.  I don't  give a lot of 5 stars, but this was really good.

YUM!

I've fixed this several times now and it's been a hit with everyone that has had it! My only change is substituting brown basmati rice for white and adding a little more broth. The brown takes a bit longer to cook but is sooooo good.

Love it!

We skipped the red pepper and added a bit more sausage but my whole family LOVED it which is an impressive feat.
