Chicken And Sausage Gumbo

Chicken Gumbo

This recipe has been in my binder for a while, but I have no idea where it came from. I wish I could give credit to the OP. This is a wonderful recipe. The hardest part is making the roux. Once you get through that, it's a piece of cake.


½ cup vegetable oil

½ cup flour


1 onion, chopped

1 bell pepper, chopped

2 celery stalks, chopped

1 lb smoked sausage, cut into slices and then halves

3 cloves garlic, chopped

Salt and Pepper to taste

Creole Seasoning to taste

6 Cups Chicken Broth

1 bay leaf

Chicken legs or thighs, boiled and deboned

1 box or bag of frozen okra

First step, chop up your onions, green pepper, garlic and celery

Next, heat the oil and flour over medium heat; stirring constantly (you are making the roux). Cook slowly until the roux looks like a copper penny.

Add onion, bell pepper, celery and sausage to the pot; cook for a few minutes.

Pour in chicken broth; add seasonings. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour; stirring occasionally. Add the chicken when almost done. Serve over rice.

Tip: for thicker gumbo use 1 cup flour and 1 cup of oil.
