Prepare your mise en place: Peel, halve and thinly slice onion. Halve each celery rib lengthwise, and thinly slice crosswise. Pick and chop parsley leaves. Thinly slice bacon crosswise. Cut chicken breast into approximately 1/2-inch pieces.
Heat a large saucepot over medium heat, and add bacon. Cook, stirring, until bacon is slightly browned and crispy, 3-4 minutes. Add onion and celery. Cook, stirring, until onions just begin to become translucent, 2-3 minutes.
Stir in rice, 3 1/2 cups water, bouillon cube, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and bay leaves. Increase heat to high
When liquid comes to a full boil add chicken and spice blend. When liquid returns to to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover pot and cook until rice is tender and and chicken is opaque all the way through, about 40 minutes.
Remove pot from heat. Remove and discard bay leaves. Stir in parsley. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as desired. Divide the bog between 2 bowls, and top with hot sauce if desired. Enjoy!
