Chicken and Okra Gumbo
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Cook: 1-3/4 hours
Delicious! It was an excellent way to use excess okra, tomatoes and peppers from my garden and was full of flavor. Since I used fresh tomatoes, I did add a little salt and used only 1 tsp of hot sauce. I will be making again, especially as I have a prolific okra patch and just found another great way to use them.
Absolutely delicious! The only change that I made was to reduce the hot sauce. I used fresh okra from my garden and it was great. Brought back childhood memories
Great! But you left out a key ingredient, File Gumbo.
Made this last night, the only variation was I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and boiled them in 2 quarts of chicken broth, and used that in step 3. Amazing gumbo, next time we plan on substituting steak and beef broth for the chicken and chicken broth, will post when I do that!
I love this soup! I make it all the time for my BBQ restaurant. The only change I made to it was I cook sweet Italian sausage and use the grease from that and my bacon grease for my roux. I sometimes add chicken base and I double the okra. Customers love it! Thanks!!
Loved it! Husband added Gumbo filet to it! We discussed shrimp or sausage, but I liked it just like this! Did quite a bit of salt.
I had to make some adjustments, I halved the recipe b/c I'm cooking for 2 (still had plenty of leftovers). I used boneless/skinless breasts b/c I didn't have anything else. I ended up adding sausage b/c the chicken cooked WAY down. I enjoyed it but my husband thought it was spicy so IDK if I'll make again.
This was a great recipe. I it in half since was only cooking for 2 & stilled had lots of left overs. I used fresh tomatoes instead of can, fresh okra, & a small egg plant all from our garden. I did not cook the chicken long as it said but it was done. It was delicious over the rice. Flavors were blended even more the next day. Hubby loved it!
I did not use any pepper sauce, but instead used Serrano peppers instead of green. It was anything but bland! Delicious, but made my lips burn afterwards!
