This was incredible. One of the best things I ever made and I will be making this for a long time to come. I did make a few changes. I added a little more chopped chicken than mentioned in the recipe; because I bought a 1 lb packet of chicken and I didn't want to freeze the rest. Also, I had only a smoked turkey sausage and I had 1 lb of it - I used the whole thing. For the roux, I used whole wheat flour, but since it is already brown in color, it is hard to decide when to stop. Keep stirring and pay attention to the roux. I kept tasting it periodically to make sure that it wasn't getting burned. My parents do not eat anything spicy. So I added about 2 tablespoons of cajun spicing rather than 1/4 cup. It turned out to be perfect. Finally, according to other comments here, I used only 4 cups of chicken broth and added the cooked shrimp to the gumbo at the very end (about 2-3 mins to spare). Anyway, this was an amazing recipe and the only minor suggestion is that okra be added to the recipe as well - to complete the Gumbo.
