Cook sausage in large skillet over medium heat until it begins to brown; add onion and pepper. Continue cooking until sausage is done and onion and pepper are tender; drain. Add seasoning packet from rice mix; stir well. Add rest of mix; saute 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently. Add water and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat; simmer for 20-25 minutes or until rice is cooked.

Tips: The original recipe called for spicy sausage but I found sweet sausage on sale plus I was afraid that my kids would find the spicy sausage too much to handle. So either variety should work fine. Look for chicken rice mix (I think I used Rice-a-Roni) to go on sale then keep it in the pantry until you find sausage on sale. If you live at higher altitude, make sure to watch the rice. It might need an extra 1/2 cup of water before it gets completely cooked. I also shared this recipe at Momtrends' Food Friday.
