Smoked sausage, chicken wings, and ham flavor this zesty Creole dinner. For a spicier dish, substitute hot sausage for the smoked.
If using drummettes, rinse and pat dry. In large saucepan, combine drummettes, the peas, and ham. Add the water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes.
Add onion, parsley, green pepper, tomato sauce, green onions, garlic, Worcestershire, black and red peppers, oregano, thyme, and pepper sauce. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Cover; simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in sausage and cooked chicken (if using). Cook, uncovered, over low heat for 15 minutes more. Serve over rice, if desired. Makes 10 main-dish servings.
To reduce the sodium, use low-sodium tomato sauce, half the ham, and half the sausage.
