Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

30 Minute MealsChicken RecipeOne Pot Meals

Chicken and Sausage Gumbo – Quick to make, incredibly delicious gumbo loaded with chicken, sausage, okra, peppers, tomatoes, and served over brown rice.

GUMBO. Because Mardi Gras is in less than a week! Wish I was in N’awlins for it, but this homemade gumbo will have to do.

Hello boo! How are we doing? It’s mid-week, Friday is almost here. Hang in there. Though I realize that always waiting for the weekend means that you miss out on everything in between, but oh well. Friday will always be better than Monday.

Oh oh oh! Another key element to Fridays? Going to bed late and sleeping in on Saturday mornings. Yahhhssss! And making gumbo! Why not?!

Did you know that traditional gumbo takes hours to make?! NOT this guy! It’ll be done in like 30 minutes. However, I do feel like winter begs for slow cooked stews, but ain’t nobody got time for that. Unless, it’s in the slow cooker. Then I’m cool with it. BUT to stand above a stove stirring every 4 minutes for 4 hours? Naaah. I’ll stick to this Chicken and Sausage Gumbo which is so basic and ridiculously delicious.

HOW TO MAKE GUMBO

Now, whip out your dutch oven, friends, because we are about to start browning some andouille sausage.

When that is all said and done, we will move on to making a roux with a bit of butter, some oil, and a sprinkle of flour. You’re also going to add our chicken to that roux and cook it through. It will be pretty and golden and ready for its friends to join in!

Once we’re done with all of that, the rest of the ingredients will follow to create this somewhat traditional, packed with flavor, Chicken and Sausage Gumbo.

Get on this pronto! XO

ENJOY!

    I made this tonight and both my husband and I were very pleased with it. Great flavor and very easy to make. I’ll definitely make again.

  2. This is the real deal. Gumbo is my favorite thing to cook and eat. The only differences I make is I add 3 celery stocks because I like celery a couple jalapeno peppers for heat, two tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce “preferably Lea and Perrins” and a bottle of dark beer like a stout or porter. Also I prefer to make my own chicken stock then shread the chicken for the gumbo or you can just use a large package of whole skinless bone in chicken thighs which works best. Theres a great youtube video of Justin Wilson on making gumbo. Check it out if you can. And remember to constantly stir your roux, when you think it’s going to burn cook it for 15 minutes longer just make sure to keep on stirring and you’ll be alright, it should look like dark chocolate with a redish tint to the head A wood spoon works best wisks can’t get the edges right. Serve with tobasco, and white rice cooked in chicken stock and you’ll be in heaven. Ok now im definatly making this tomorrow. Ymmmm
