Saute the chicken and sausage over high heat in a large stockpot for six minutes, or until the outsides have browned evenly. Add the onion, peppers, celery, and chopped garlic. Cook an additional six minutes or until the peppers are tender and the onions are translucent. Add the rice, chicken stock, and bay leaves and stir completely. 

Boil the mixture, cover, lower the heat to medium-low, and allow to cook for 20 minutes. Serve.
