Come On Up To The House

Chicken Gumbo

We loved this Gumbo. Add as much or as little spice as you want. I took out the basic stew and set it aside for the kids. THEN I added the hot stuff.

Chicken Gumbo

6-8 raw chicken tenderloins, chopped (or chicken breast)
1 onions, chopped
2 green onions, diced
4 stalks celery, diced
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 cups chicken stock
1 tsp oregano, dried
2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp kosher salt
1 bay leaf
2 tsp worchestershire
1/2 tsp thyme
14oz bag frozen Okra

4 red hot chilis
1 tsp hot chipotle ground red
1 tsp cayanne


Use a dutch oven or heavy bottom pan. Saute chicken with a little oil. Remove once browned. Add in the chopped onion, green pepper and celery and let cook down for about 5 minutes. Add in the diced tomatoes and cook for 3 minutes. Add in seasonings and broth. Simmer for about 10 minutes. Add in the Okra and simmer again for 15 minutes. This is when I removed a portion for me kids, and then added the heat in. Chopped chilis, cayanne, jalapenos, habaneros. Anything that you enjoy and to your spice level.
