Chicken And Sausage Gumbo

A lady from a church we were visiting, asked me if I would join her for lunch at her farm. Not only was she from Louisana but she raved about this quick way to make Gumbo. The results were absolutely amazing and I've served it about 842 times since then. JK

Now I've always been a little intimidated with making the Roux for Gumbo, but as you'll see below... you don't saute the Roux, you make it in the microwave. Brillant!

Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

2/3 oil
2/3 flour

Microwave these two ingredients in a large microwave safe dish for 6 to 7 minutes or until the mixture is light to medium brown.

Then add the ingredients below to your oil and flour and mix well..

2 cups onion, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup green bell pepper, chopped (I don't add this and it still tastes terrific!)

Place your mixture back into the microwave for 2 minutes then add...

4 cloves of minced garlic
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1/4 cup green onion tops, chopped

Microwave for 2 minutes

Then slowly add enough hot water to bring Roux to the 4 cup mark... stir and let set for a few minutes. While you're waiting take a soup pot and add...

3 cups of chicken stock
3 cups of hot water
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Bring the above ingredients to a boil... then add Roux and stir well. When you're done with that add...

2 cups of cooked diced chicken
1 pound of sausage (I perfer Kiebasa or Turkey Kiebasa)

Cook all ingredients on high for 10 minutes, when serve over rice. ENJOY!

PS- You can prepare the Roux and freeze it for later use.

Thanks Ruth for this fabulouso recipe,
Java Girl
