Chicken and Sausage Gumbo
Chicken and sausage are the most popular gumbo ingredients in La because they were readily available on farms. Most Cajun families raised chickens and made a variety of sausage.

1 rotisserie chicken
1 pound andouille sausage
1 c flour
1 c oil
2 c diced onions
2 c diced celery
2 c diced bell pepper
1/2 garlic (more is better)
3 quarts broth or stock
2 bay leaves
Pinch of thyme
Pinch of basil

To taste:
Tony Chachere’s
Punch ya Daddy seasoning
Crystal hot sauce
Uncle Steve’s Shake

– Pick the rotisserie chicken and remove bones
– Cut sausage into bite size pieces
– In a 2 gallon stockpot heat enough oil to cover the bottom of the pot. Whisk in flour a little at a time-don’t stop stirring. Once the mixture (the roux) is golden brown stir in all the veggies and garlic. Sauté 3-5 minutes until soft/wilted. Toss in the chicken and sausage. Add chicken broth and stir constantly. Add all seasonings and bring to a boil.
– Once at a boil, lower your fire to LOW and simmer in the stove as long as you want. In 20 minutes, it’s ready but the longer you simmer, the richer the flavor.
– Serve over hot, white rice alongside French bread.
