Once browned remove with slotted spoon. This is a flavor building meal so leave the drippings in the pot. Add more olive oil and throw in the chicken to brown. Add the half tablespoon of slap your mama that you reserved

When soft add the crushed tomatoes, the rest of spices, Wooster, hot sauce and the sausage and chicken back in the pot. Let it cook for a few minutes to let the flavors come together

After 10-15 min add the rice and chicken broth. Bring to a boil then cover and reduce heat to a simmer

Let it go for around 30min stirring every few minutes or so until the rice begins to soak up the goodness. You may need to add more broth if it gets too thick. When rice is tender. Maybe 45min in add the raw shrimp and stir in and cover. Let it cook for 10min or until the shrimp is pink. Put it in a bowl, garnish with parsley and green onions, add some crusty bread and get ready for your tongue to slap you in the face!
