    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Add 1 package of the Creole or Cajun Gumbo Mix to Large Pot of Cold Water or chicken broth (10 cups+)* before you put the chicken into cook. Stir well and bring to a boil.
    2. 2
      Please note that you can find several brands of this gumbo base mix.
    3. 3
      It's usually on the grocery isle with the gravy, and other sauce mixes in packages. I mentioned "Zatarians" brand in my ingredients list because that's the only brand that this program would accept. I've tried several.
    4. 4
      brands and they have all been very good.
    5. 5
      Turn heat down to medium. Add chicken to pot of water with gumbo mix and cook until done. (20-30 minutes).
    6. 6
      Cut cooked and cooled chicken into bite-size pieces and put back in the pot.
    7. 7
      Cut up the smoked sausage in small bite-size pieces and add to pot.
    8. 8
      Note: You can pre cook the sausage in the microwave on high for 2 minutes or so, if you would like to remove some of the grease from the sausage first, before adding to the pot.
    9. 9
      Add all other ingredients (except rice) and cook on low to medium for an hour. Use 1 or 2 cans each of the Vegetables (corn and okra), depending on how much you like.
    10. 10
      Cook the rice separately and set aside. When Gumbo is finished and you are ready to serve, add rice to individual serving bowls and spoon gumbo on top of rice.
    11. 11
      For variation, you can also add a package of frozen, pre cooked and shelled, medium shrimp, which is also excellent. If you use shrimp, don't add until the last 15 minutes of cooking.
    12. 12
      *May need to add more water, depending on how soupy or thick you want the gumbo.
    13. 13
      Can also be made in the crock pot and cook on low for 8-10 hours.
