Chicken & Sausage Gumbo


You'll Need

8-qt stockpot, baking sheet


  1. Preheat oven on 450 degrees. Make roux: Heat oil in stockpot on MED-LOW. Gradually add flour while stirring with wooden spoon. Cook 75-90 min, stirring frequently at start of cook time. Stir constantly after roux starts to turn color until it's chocolate-brown. (Note: after 40 min cooking, roux should be peanut butter-color.) Roux will cook after removing from heat. Set aside.

  2. Toss sausage with soy sauce in bowl. Roast 15-20 min on baking sheet in oven center rack, until caramelized and quite brown. Set aside.

  3. Return roux to stovetop on MED-HIGH. Add garlic; cook 2-3 min, stirring constantly. Add tomatoes; cook, stirring, until slightly browned. Stir in thyme and 1 tsp basil. Add celery and onion; cook, stirring occasionally, about 3 min.  Add chicken stock and Worcestershire sauce; bring to simmer. Add sausage; cook 10-15 min. Add peppers; cook 10 min. Add okra and chicken; season with Tabasco, salt, and remaining basil.

  4. Make slurry: Whisk together gumbo file and water in small bowl; let stand about 1 min to thicken.

  5. Remove gumbo from heat; fold slurry into gumbo with heat-proof rubber spatula and gentle lifting/ turning motion.

Chef Tips
  • Garnish with green onions.
  • Long cook time needed to eliminate floury taste and develop deep, rich, nutty flavor.
  • Freezes well.
