Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

The secret to a great gumbo with a Cajun kick lies in the andouille, a spicy smoked sausage. If you can't find andouille, any smoked sausage will do, but you may need to spice up the gumbo with a bit more red pepper.

Chicken and Sausage Gumbo



  1. In a large pot combine flour and oil; cook over medium-low heat about 20 minutes or until mixture is caramel-colored, stirring constantly.
  2. Add onion, sweet pepper, celery, and garlic; cook 5 minutes. Skin chicken, if desired. Rinse chicken; pat dry. Add chicken and water to pot along with sausages, salt, ground red pepper, and black pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer about 1 hour or until chicken is tender and no longer pink. Skim off excess fat. Remove chicken pieces from gumbo, if desired.
  3. When bones are cool enough to handle, remove meat from bones. Discard bones. Return chicken to pot. Cook 2 to 3 minutes more or until chicken is heated through. Serve over rice. Makes 10 servings.
