Really great flavor, here! Though not a traditional gumbo (no roux), this is a very easy recipe to prepare. I followed the recipe exactly, and DH and DS had seconds. I reserved some for lunch, or they would have cleaned the pot. I like the taste of okra, and I will add some next time, with about half a package of andouille. There are so many veggies in this, the only side needed is some crusty bread, to catch every drop of the delicious broth!
This was great! I added a traditional roux and used diced tomatoes with garlic and onions. Very tasty!!! You can also add andouille sausage.
Great recipe! I left out the celery and used 2 red bell peppers rather than the green just due to family preferences. I also used cubed chicken breast rather than thighs. The flavor was absolutely wonderful, definitely a hit! I used the Simple Cajun Seasoning recipe from this site since it's not a seasoning I generally keep on hand. Like a previous reviewer, I also used Reynold's Slow Cooker Liners when making this recipe- they definitely saved me time on clean up!
This recipe is amazing. My family and I raved over this one. I ADORE the simplicity of throwing everything into the crock pot, and the Reynold's Slow Cooker Liners are genius! No clean up at all!! The only thing I added was some diced smoked beef sausage (kielbasa). We also sprinkled on some gumbo file before serving, since I had it! We will absolutely use this again. I love the mix of proteins and the slightly spicy, flavorful broth. Yumm!!
I've never had gumbo before, so I can't judge how authentic this is. Having said that, we loved this. We served it over the rice and had slices of fresh baked bread as a side. Delicious meal, and super simple!
I changed two things: #1 omitted the cayenne. My husband can't handle spicy. #2 put 2lbs skinless, bone-in whole chicken thighs, instead of 1lb chopped boneless, skinless. (I figured the bone made them twice as heavy so I doubled it.) We had to remove the bones after it was done cooking shredding the chicken in the process. I don't think this made a difference taste-wise, just ease-wise. Shredding already slow-cooked chicken is way easier (and cleaner) than chopping raw chicken.
Very easy and flavorful. I added sausage and mushroom, substituted ROTEL for the stewed tomatoes, cooked the rice in the slow cooker about 30 min prior to adding the shrimp which absorbed some of the liquid making it less soupy. We had thirds... could not stop eating.
This was a delicious and easy weeknight gumbo. Took me about 15 minutes to throw together. A few enhancements, I used two cans of tomatoes with okra and one stewed, added sliced andouille chicken sausage, and used a couple of teaspoons of file gumbo. Enjoyed this recipe! Thanks for sharing, Reynolds.
Very tasty! I was looking for a way to prepare chicken thighs that was new and exciting and this fit the bill. I had 1/2 of a kielbasa sausage in the fridge so I threw that in as well. We really enjoyed this. :)
I didn't cut the thighs up because I knew I would have to leave this in the slow cooker for 8 hours and I was hoping to not dry out the chicken. I was able to shred it with a wooden spoon and it wasn't dry at all.
