Print Recipe Chicken Gumbo
Classic gumbos are a bit more like soup than the chicken version we've used here. This is a more about producing a satisfying mouthfeel than sticking to tradition. If you're curious there's an example of a turkey gumbo we made from Thanksgiving leftovers that displays it a little truer. Gumbo is meant to be simmered low for a pretty good while but for our needs, you'll end up with mushy vegetables. One option is to divide the bell pepper, onion, and celery into two portions. Cook up your pot of gumbo according to the recipe and add the second portion of vegetables during the last ten minutes of cooking. Nice and crunchy.
