I am a Religious Cajun & Creole Cook and have been cooking Chicken Gumbo for many years. This recipe is very good. I would delete the mushrooms, add some Cayenne Pepper in place of Hot Sauce and add 1/2 tsp. dried thyme leaves for more spice. Now you are close to Creole Cooking.
I'm not a gumbo expert, but I felt like this dish was lacking a little something.
Outstanding! Very flavorful. I omitted the mushrooms and added celery. I also took the advice of others and added 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth. It made for a better soupier consistency. Also, in my experience, roux made with butter is much better than making it with oil. You can even use products such as Smart Balance if you are watching fats and cholesterol.
This dish was very good. My husband even went back for 2nd's. The only thing better was if I had made Louisiana style Gumbo. The only part of the recipe I would change is when making the mixture of flour and oil is to stir continously over low to medium heat. When followed the directions I burnt the pan.
definitely a keeper. but, you MUST use 1 can of chicken stock. otherwise, it will be too thick. also, i prefer to use fresh vegetables. i used fresh shitake mushrooms and tossed in a couple of half tomatos. I served over brown rice. and to make sure that it doesnt stick to the pot, spray the pot with pam before heating the oil and flour. good luck
This is a five star recipe with some alterations. First, add some chicken stock, about 1 1/2 cups. Also, to kick it up some, I cut up a jalepeno and simmered it with the other peppers. I added a little of cayanne pepper and the finishing touch- a little sherry. Magnificent. Serve over white rice!
This was really good, with a few changes. First, like alot of others have said, it doesn't take 5 mins for the flour/oil to brown. You should do it over low/medium heat. I also used fresh mushrooms, a red pepper instead of green, and added about 1 cup of chicken broth. I also threw in some smoked sausage & doubled up on the sauce/spices(except for the garlic). I served over brown rice & it was very tasty! It reminds me of one of our fave South Beach diet recipes that also includes Bacon & Shrimp...yummy!!
We actually made a few changes to this receipie which gave it a real nice kick. To make it a bit more soup-like we added 2 cups of chicken stock. We also added kielbasa (chirozo would work as well!), and threw in a few more spicies because we like it flavorful and spicy. This turned out to be one of our favorites, and we'll definitly be using it more in the future.
