Stovetop Cooking: Heat 1 tbsp oil in a heavy pan and fry the onion, garlic, and celery until the onion starts to color and soften. Add the chicken and sausage and fry until the chicken is browned. Add another tbsp oil to the pan. Add the rice, spices, and herbs, then stir well to ensure the rice is well coated. Add the tomatoes, 17 oz. water and the salt. Cover the pan and bring to a boil. Simmer gently for about 15-20 minutes, or until the rice is cooked. Stir once or twice during cooking. Serve as above.
