Cody’s Chicken Sausage Gumbo

Comments:Basic to Cajun/Creole cooking, a roux must be continuously stirred or it will burn and you will have to start all over. Keep stirring when adding the ingredients to the roux. Stirring does not stop until after the water is added. Once mastered, you will be able to cook many dishes this way.

2 skinless chicken breasts, cut in half
1/3 lbs. smoked sausage, thinly sliced
8 cups hot water (more if prefered)
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup olive oil or oil of preference
1 med. onion, chopped
1 med. bell pepper, chopped (red or green)
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 cup green onion tops, chopped
3 fresh parsley sprigs, chopped
1 tbs. Smokeless Blackened Seasoning
salt, cayenne and black pepper to taste

Season chicken pieces with the Smokeless Blackened Seasoning. In a heavy, deep cooking pot, or dutch oven, make a roux by cooking the oil and flour for about 5 minutes or until it is the color of the Smokeless Blackened Seasoning. Add celery, onions, and bell pepper and cook until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add sausage and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add chicken and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Slowly add the hot water. Cook covered on low heat for about 45 minutes. Add salt, cayenne, and ground black pepper to taste. Turn off heat add green onion tops and parsley. Serve with rice. Serves 4
