If the rice is ready before the vegetables are cooked, turn off the heat and leave it covered on the back of the stove to steam. Fluff with a fork before adding to the vegetables.
Traditional dirty rice is made with chicken offal including gizzards and liver. If you are making this rice as an accompaniment to whole chicken, and there are giblets inside, put the neck inside the bird and dice up the heart, liver and gizzards to sauté with the vegetables in step 2.
