No Mardi Gras celebration is complete without Dirty Rice. Chicken livers are integral to authentic Dirty Rice, and what give the rice it’s “dirty” color, hence the name. But if you don’t like them, just leave them out.
OFF HEAT, STIR IN:
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat until foamy. Add chicken livers, season with salt, and cook until browned, 2 minutes.
Stir in rice, bay leaves, garlic, and thyme to coat, then stir in broth and 1½ tsp. salt. Bring rice to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook according to rice package timing.
Off heat, stir in bell pepper, celery, and scallion greens. Let rice rest, covered, 5 minutes before serving.
