Welcome!  If you stopped by looking for a delicious Cajun recipe, you are at the right place.  This Chicken Sausage Gumbo is faithful to Cajun flavors.  It is delicious.

If you have never made gumbo, no worries.  I am going to teach you how to make it.How To Make Amazing Chicken Sausage Gumbo

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.

  1. I have a love for classic southern food but raised in the midwest with little training in the kitchen. This recipe is so great for beginners and I couldn’t be happier how my gumbo turned out! Maybe this midwest gal can finally ‘hang’ in a southern kitchen…eventually! :)

    • Kourtney,

      You crack me up. I am sure you are a great cook. I have plenty of easy recipes on Recipes for our Daily Bread, but Gumbo is not one of them. I am so proud of you for trying this gumbo.
      You made my day!
      Thank you so much for letting me know you made it.

  2. Diane, We were raised in New Orleans, but when we moved to SE Kansas in the 50’s, we could no longer get fresh seafood. My mom made a similar gumbo as yours but with tiny spicy meatballs and canned oysters. It was fabulous. Yours sounds great, I’m gonna try it!

    • Holly,

      Thank you for stopping by Recipes for our Daily Bread and leaving me a comment about my Chicken & Sausage Gumbo. I love the food and flavors in New Orleans cooking. I would have never thought of trying meatballs and oysters, but I guess anything would work. It is really the roux that makes the difference. Oh, how I wish I could have a bowl now.

      Thanks for supporting my blog.
      Many many Blessings,
      Diane Roark
