  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.

    Place the chicken pieces in a large kettle or Dutch oven, then add the chicken stock, water, chopped onion, carrots, celery, garlic, salt, pepper, thyme, parsley, and rosemary.
  3. Step 3

    Place the pan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover the pan. Simmer the chicken for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked. Remove the chicken to a bowl.
  4. Step 4

    Strain the broth; discard the solids and return the liquids to the pan. Set aside.
  5. Step 5

    When the chicken is cool enough to handle, remove the meat from the bones. Discard the skin and return the bones to the broth. 
  6. Step 6

    Bring the broth with the bones to a simmer; reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, or until reduced; the liquids should measure about 3 cups. Taste the broth and adjust the seasoning, as needed. Remove and discard the bones. If desired, remove some of the fat from the broth with a fat separator.
  7. Step 7

    Add the chicken back to the broth along with the rice, sliced sausage, and green onion. Continue to cook for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the rice is tender.
