    My husband does not like chicken on the bone. I have only made it one time with deboned chicken.. it was OK.. but I have the recipe from a Louisana Newspaper from my brother who lives in Anacoco (Near Ft. Polk in Leesville) That recipe does call for tomatoes (I use tomatoes, but I can my own.. better flavor and I do not use a lot... less that a qt for a huge pot!!) I use chicken and kielbasa as my meats.

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