4 qt water
1 cup dark roux
3 lb chicken, cut up
3 links smoked sausage, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
3 cups cooked white rice
How It’s Done
In a large pot, saute onion and bell pepper in oil for about 10 minutes. Add seasoning, then water, and bring to a boil. Add roux and stir constantly until melted. Add chicken and let simmer on medium-high heat for 1 hour. Add smoked sausage and let cook for 20 minutes more. Turn the heat off and let the gumbo rest for 20-30 minutes before serving. Serves 6 to 10 people.
Letting your gumbo rest will allow the flavors come together and will make your gumbo even better. Serves 6 to 10 people. You could use the 30 minutes to make a potato salad and then enjoy and old Cajun favorite combo. And, if you don’t feel like cooking yourself, head over to Mulate’s for some delicious Cajun cuisine.
