Not wanting to spend the time to make an authentic gumbo, and having leftover roasted chicken and kielbasa, I decided this was an interesting dish to make on a cold day. I didn't add okra since we don't like the texture. This dish was very good and quite easy to make. I think the kielbasa provided a more authentic taste than Italian sausage. And because I didn't have all the spices on hand, I used the equivalent of Emeril's seasoning. The gumbo had a nice combination of broth to "goodies", and had a rich, brown color as if a roux had been made. I cut the kielbasa into rounds, and added the leftover chicken and cooked shrimp last, just long enough to warm them. The gumbo definitely had some kick, and I will make it again. Thanks for a very good recipe!
