    james.gunn's Note:

    This probably isn't super legit to southern cuisine, but it's the way i like my gumbo. this is all just estimated amounts, I've never actually measured this out. Most Gumbo recipes call for a dark roux, but i dont even cook my roux.

      Throw the proteins you have cut into the pot with the aromatics (if they aren't fully cooked, it wont matter).

    5. 5
      Add chicken base and bring to a boil.
