This recipe is a combination of gumbo and seafood soup. I make it for large get togethers and everyone begs for the recipe. It is relatively easy as far as a gumbo goes and oh, so good! Serve with French bread over rice. It is also good if you add file powder.

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine chicken broth, water, and Cajun seasoning in a large stock pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; add chicken. Cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside to cool slightly. Cut into bite-sized pieces.

  • Microwave sausage to remove some of the grease, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, bring chicken broth mixture back to a boil.

  • Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Slowly add flour, stirring constantly, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add mixture to boiling stock.

  • Place chicken, sausage, shrimp, onion, and bell pepper into stock pot. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally until vegetables are tender and meat is cooked through, about 30 minutes. Add okra; cook until softened, about 30 minutes more.

This soup is amazing!!! I used Aloha Bell Peppers because I thought they would add a little extra color. The only addition that I would make for next time is making rice. Just a small scoop of white rice in the bottom of the bowl would just add a little bit more to the soup. Thank you for a fantastic recipe and a super easy gumbo! Read More
