Ingredients

  • 12 chicken thighs

  • 2 (12 ounce) packages andouille sausage, sliced

  • 5 green onions, chopped

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 8 cups water

  • 5 stalks celery, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning

  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

Directions

  1. Saute chicken and sausage in a large skillet for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove meat from skillet, add green onions and onion and saute until soft. Set aside.

  2. To Make Roux: In a small saucepan stir together oil and flour over low heat; cook until color is caramel and mixture is reduced to 1 cup of roux. Set aside.

  3. Put water in a large pot. Add the chicken, sausage, onion mixture, celery, seasoning, cayenne pepper, salt, ground black pepper and garlic. Bring all to a boil and cook for 20 minutes. Add 1/2 cup roux and stir together; the mixture should have the consistency of chowder. If necessary, add the remaining 1/2 cup roux.

  4. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer uncovered for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Serve hot over rice, if desired.
