Chicken & Sausage Gumbo

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1/3 C Olive Oil
  • 1/3 C Flour
  • 2-4 Chicken breasts cubed
  • 1-2 sausages sliced
  • 1 Lrg onion chopped
  • 1 Lrg green pepper chopped
  • 1 Can Ro Tel
  • 4 C chicken broth
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 4+ cups water to taste/preference
  • Salt, pepper to taste/preference
  • Cooked rice


In a large pot saute the chicken and sausage together, once cooked pull out and put aside (leaving the drippings)
Add the oil and flour and cook over medium high, stirring constantly, until it's the color of a copper penny (this is your roux)
Add the onion and green pepper and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 10 mins.
Add the chicken, sausage, Ro Tel, broth, bay leaves, water and salt and pepper and bring mixture to a simmer with the lid on.
Turn the heat to low and continue to simmer for a minimum of 20 mins, but the longer you simmer the better the flavor.
Keep the lid on for long term cooking, if you take the lid off too often you might need to add more water.
Serve over rice (don't serve the bay leaves)
