Sausage and Chicken Jambalaya Stirfry

“From ' No Time To Cook : One-Dish Meals ", a quick and easy supper dish using pantry ingredients. I chose not to cook the rice separately, but with the other ingrdients, more like a risotto. If you do this, you will need more liquid, I did use a lot more than 1/2 a cup of broth, probably more like 1 and a 1/2, plus the liquid from the canned tomatoes. I also added about 1 tblsp tomato paste that I had in the fridge, plus a dash of brown sugar. And, no salt, more pepper! All according to personal taste! I also added Tabasco to mine, although not my husbands, I prefer more heat. Posting recipe as originally published, but feel free to play :)”
