Arroz Con Pollo

1/2 lbs Italian Sausage (or Kielbasa)  cut into 1/2" pieces
3 Tablespoons Virgin Olive Oil
1-1/2 lbs boneless chicken breasts (cut into small cubes)
1 cup chopped onion (optional)
1 8oz jar green olives
1 2oz jar pimentos
1 28oz can tomatoes
2 cups long grain rice
1-1/4 cup water
1 10oz package frozen peas

Brown sausage with olive oil in a Dutch oven.  Remove sausage and allow to
cool.  Using the drippings brown the chicken and remove.  If using onion
cook onion until clear in drippings.  Add the sausage back in with the
chicken.  Add rice, olives, pimentos, tomatoes, all their liquids and water.
Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer.  Cover the Dutch oven and
continue simmering for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once the rice is
done and the chicken is fork tender, add frozen peas and cook uncovered for 5-10 more minutes, (if the consistency appears to be dry cook the final 5-10 minutes covered).

Serves 8
