    1. Place chicken and sausage in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer until chicken is opaque and falls from the bone, 45 minutes. Remove chicken and sausage, reserving stock. Shred chicken with two forks.
    2. In a large pot over medium heat, cook peppers, onions and garlic until onion is translucent, adding reserved chicken stock if necessary. Stir in tomatoes, chilli powder, hot pepper sauce, cayenne, Worcestershire and bay leaves; reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.
    3. Stir the shredded chicken, sausage and tomato puree into the spiced vegetables. Continue to simmer until flavour is as spicy as you like, adding reserved liquid as needed to thin.
    4. Stir in 250ml reserved liquid with the rice. Simmer 20 minutes, until rice is tender. Serve or continue to simmer, as desired.
