Chicken and Sausage Gumbo
January 30, 2018
This Chicken and Sausage Gumbo recipe is relatively quick to pull together compared to most traditional recipes. After preparing the roux, most of the time spent making gumbo is basically hands-free. You’ll just need to stir the pot occasionally to prevent sticking. You can serve it over rice for a complete meal and freeze the leftovers in gallon-size freezer bags. If there are any leftovers! Here is the recipe.
