Slow Cooked Chicken & Sausage Gumbo Haiku: "Celery still crunchy. And roux more than ten minutes. But yum! We loved this." Full disclosure: I followed the recipe except I used a can of Kirkland chicken instead of the chicken thighs and a chicken Andouille sausage instead of Italian sausage. Didn't substitute anything else though and we ate ours over faux-rice (food processor'ed cauliflower) with a baguette you know to appeal to starch-happy children who it turns out didn't mind that there was some heat in this gumbo. A pleasant tickle heat in the back of your throat not reach-for-your-drink fire. If it wasn't for the celery (that I should've known better and sauteed first) being a bit al dente and the roux taking more like 25 min. to develop that nice nutty color and aroma I would've given this 5 stars.

Really excellent! Once everything was chopped this came together very quickly. Was out of time to do the Crock-Pot version so just simmered it on the stove for an hour. Didn't have a jalapeno so used a can of diced tomatoes with jalapenos and onions. Used 6 boneless thighs instead of 4 bone-in. Flavor and heat was wonderful! Just to add a touch of brightness and pop of complementary flavor we sprinkled chopped cilantro on top of each serving. Served over rice and it was amazing!! I want to try it with andouille sausage next time! Thanks for posting! Read More

Not bad. Definitely not like from back home in Louisiana but still good in it's on right. Double up on the chicken though and shred it instead of cutting it up. Read More

This was fantastic! I made it last week and my family raved. They told me so many times about how great it was that it got embarrassing! Today I'm making it again and planning on putting it in individual sized containers for my husband to take to work for lunch. I added fresh okra. Read More
