  1. Cook and stir flour in a large, heavy pot over medium-low heat until flour turns golden brown, about 15 minutes. Pour browned flour into a bowl and return pot to heat.
  2. Increase heat to medium and add oil to the pot. Cook and stir onions and bell peppers in hot oil until slightly softened, about 7 minutes.
  3. Stir garlic, thyme, and bay leaves into onion mixture; cook and stir for 1 minute. Add sausage to onion mixture and cook and stir until browned and crumbly, 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Stir diced tomatoes with juice, shredded chicken, chicken broth, vegetable juice cocktail, browned flour, and Creole seasoning into sausage mixture. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover the pot, and simmer, stirring often, until mixture is hot and flavors blend, 20 to 30 minutes.
  5. Pour shrimp into sausage-chicken mixture; bring to a simmer. Cook shrimp until they are pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center, about 5 minutes.
  6. Discard bay leaves. Season gumbo with salt and pepper to taste.

Great recipe -- I crushed tomatoes instead of diced - and Swansons canned chicken - I literally had all the ingredients in the house! Made cornbread to serve with it! Yummy and easy!

We all loved it! Used spicy Clamato juice instead of V8. Also added diced Serrano and jalapeño peppers along with bell peppers. Used 1 cup of chicken broth from boiled chicken and added the rest...

It turned out delicious and was a big hit with the family. I didn't have spicy V8 so used Mr and Mrs T bloody Mary mix and added some horseradish sauce. I used red bell peppers bc I prefer them ...

Fantastic, the the right amount of spice! I didn't have enough shrimp, so I added pieces of scallops to make up the difference. Love it!!

This was really good. Making it for the second time right now. I added a little celery and zucchini. Used less creole seasoning because I wasn't sure if it would be too hot. Cooked some rice...

I followed the recipe exactly but found the area where the sausage was cooked to be vague. I had Italian sausage in casings but wasn't sure if I was supposed to remove the casing because it des...

This was just THE BEST! I had so many compliments on this dish. The only thing I did differently was adding a can of Rotel in place of the V8. I will make this many times!

Great loves it...we served it with white rices
