In large shallow Dutch oven, heat half of the oil over medium-low heat; brown sausage. Transfer to paper towel-lined bowl.

Add chicken to Dutch oven; brown well. Add to sausage. Drain fat from pan.

Add remaining oil; cook onion and garlic over medium-low heat for 8 minutes or until softened and light golden.

Stir in celery, green pepper, thyme, oregano, paprika, cumin, basil, salt, pepper, cayenne and bay leaves; cook for about 4 minutes or until softened.

Stir in tomatoes and chicken stock, scraping up brown bits. Stir in sausage mixture; bring to boil. Stir in rice; reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes or until rice is almost tender.

Stir in shrimp; cover and cook for about 5 minutes or until shrimp are pink.

Discard bay leaves. Stir in green onions. (Make-ahead: Let cool for 30 minutes; refrigerate until cold. Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours; reheat in 375°F/190°C oven for 30 minutes.)
