Welcome! If you stopped by looking for a delicious Cajun recipe, you are at the right place. This Chicken Sausage Gumbo is true to Cajun flavors. It is delicious.
If you have never made gumbo, no worries. I am going to teach you how to make it.
It is just full of flavor with the onion, bell pepper, celery, garlic, Cajun seasoning, and more. I grew up eating a lot of seafood Gumbo in Mobile, Alabama, which is near the Gulf. I also had plenty of seafood and chicken & sausage gumbo when I lived on the North Shore of New Orleans. In Arkansas, we do not have fresh seafood, so I prepare Chicken & Sausage Gumbo. It is similar to a Seafood Gumbo, but it has Chicken & Andouille Sausage. Andouille sausage is a Cajun Smoked sausage from Louisiana. It is much more flavorful and maybe a little spicier than regular sausage. My local Wal-Mart carries Andouille Sausage.
You start making gumbo by making the roux. It sounds fancy, but it is simply a fat in this recipe I used bacon grease whisked with flour. Next, you slow whisk in the liquid which I used chicken broth. You want to whisk and whisk until the fat, flour and chicken stock is dark brown and smells nutty. Making the roux is the most difficult part. Take you time and watch it closely. Your roux will turn out perfectly.
