Easy Chicken (Turkey) Gumbo

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Just Call Me Martha

This is a great way to use up leftover turkey or chicken. Very similar to traditional gumbo, this is a quick and easy alternative - a thick, hearty gumbo that can be spiced up even more at the table with some Louisiana Hot Sauce and/or Cajun Seasoning. Enjoy!

This is delicious, and easy to prepare. I used veggie chicken, and skipped the seafood and sausage. I also crumbled veggie bacon on top for some extra flavor and texture. My vegetarian husband gave it high marks. Thanks so much.
