    Cookin-jo's Note:

    A healthy and delicious stew which stretches 1/4 pound of chicken and 1/4 pound of crabmeat a long way. Add more hot sauce if you like heat, and add a cup of sliced okra if you like it. Adapted from Bonnie Stern.

      We really enjoyed this - made it on a whim based on what we had in the house. I added extra rice and may try using some clam juice in place of some of the broth to give it a bit more of a fishy flavour - found that the crab was lost a bit. Will definitely make again - thanks!

      This is really good! I found it harder to get this to a golden-brown. I know that canola oil is better for you however, I think butter would do the trick! Otherwise, excellent recipe! Made for PAC 07.

      A delicious gumbo. Due to my husband's low sodium diet, I used low sodium chicken broth and tomatoes and didn't add any additional salt. The rest of us salted our gumbo at the table. I also added a little more chicken, in total, 2 chicken breast halves and additional hot sauce. This was very good and next time may thicken it a bit more with some additional flour. thanks for posting this really good recipe Cookin-jo!
