      This is NOT a "Cajun-Style" Gumbo ... it is more of a "stew" but NOT a Gumbo ...<br/>I've been married to a Cajun for 20+ years, and my MIL, husband's grandmother and several of his aunts all taught me how to cook fantastic Cajun recipes. <br/>In 25 years of eating wonderful Cajun and Creole food IN Lousiana, I have NEVER ever seen tomatoes in any gumbo or, some of the other ingredients used here.<br/>Chicken gumbo is also NEVER made with boneless, skinless CHICKEN breasts ... there is NO flavor. You always use a whole chicken or a cut up chicken ... the dark meat gives it all the flavor !!!

      This is not cajun. We do not use tomatoes in our gumbo. Close, but no cigar. It should be dark chocolate colored, not red, and cajuns do not use hot sauce in gumbo.

      Every time I see a gumbo recipe that claims to be 'quick and easy', I just cringe.
