CHICKEN & SAUSAGE GUMBO


well hello there! i've had a few requests for updated recipes so i'm going to try to get back on the horse! i had some leftover chicken & a few links of frozen andouille sausage so a gumbo was calling my name. most gumbos are very complex & while i don't pretend to have an ounce of cajun in my blood, this is pretty darn close to the nola staple! you probably have most of the ingredients around the house which makes for a cheap dinner per serving. you can even toss-in or substitute shrimp if you have some on hand. enjoy!

chicken & sausage gumbo
ingredients {in order of use}
*serves 4-6
  • 3 cups rotisserie chicken, shredded
  • 1.5 tablespoons emeril’s essence seasoning
  • 6 tablespoons butter {divided-1 now, 5 later}
  • 2 links chicken& turkey andouille sausage, thin sliced
  • 5 tablespoons flour {i prefer whole wheat pastry flour}
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 .5 cups onion, diced
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 1 cup green pepper, diced
  • 2 cups {plus some} chicken stock
  • 1 bag slicked okra
  • 2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt {to season}
  • Hot sauce {to season}
  • Brown rice {for serving}
  1. in a bowl, toss shredded chicken with emeril’s seasoning & set aside.
  2. in a medium skillet, melt one tablespoon of butter over medium heat. add sausage & brown on each side. remove & set aside. add shredded chicken to skillet & toss for 5 minutes. remove & set aside with sausage.
  3. in the same skillet, add 5 tablespoons butter & melt over medium-low heat. add flour & whisk for 10 minutes until golden brown. remove from heat & set aside. this is your roux.
  4. in a large stock pot or le creuset, add one tablespoon olive oil & bring to medium heat. add garlic & sauté for 3 minutes. add onion, celery & pepper cook until soft. add chicken stock, okra, worcestershire, paprika, roux, sausage & chicken. bring to a boil, stir, reduce heat & simmer for 1-2 hours uncovered, stirring occasionally. season with salt & hot sauce to desired taste. add additional stock if needed.
  5. serve warm over brown rice with additional hot sauce!
