Chicken and Sausage Gumbo
  • 1  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 2/3  cup  cooking oil
  • 1/2  cup  chopped onion
  • 1/2  cup  chopped green sweet pepper
  • 1 1/2  stalks celery, sliced
  • 2  cloves garlic, minced
  • 2  pounds  meaty chicken pieces (breasts, thighs, and drumsticks)
  • 6  cups  water
  • 1/2  pound  fully cooked smoked sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2  pound  andouille sausage, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  teaspoon  ground red pepper

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.
