  Polish sausages 1⁄2 Pound, cut into1/4-inch-thick slices
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), minced or pressed
  Yellow onion 1 Small, chopped
  Long grain white rice 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sliced pimentos 4 Ounce, drained (1 Jar)
  Canned chopped clams/Minced clams 6 1⁄2 Ounce, drained reserve liquid (1 Can)

  Cooked rotisserie chicken/Barbecued chicken 2 1⁄2 Pound, cut into serving-size pieces
  Green onions with tops 2 , thinly sliced

In a wide frying pan, cook sausages briefly over medium-high heat to release some of the fat; add garlic, yellow onion, and rice.
Cook, stirring often, until onion is soft about 10 minutes.
Mix in pimentos, liquid from clams, and broth.
Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until rice is barely tender to bite about 15 minutes.
Stir clams into rice mixture; then arrange the chicken pieces over rice.
Cover and continue to cook until chicken is heated through 10 to 15 more minutes.
Spread rice mixture on a warm platter and arrange chicken on top; sprinkle with green onions.
