Categories     Soup/Stew     Chicken     Sausage

Yield 6-8

Number Of Ingredients 16

-1 tablespoon plus 1/2 cup vegetable oil (or bacon fat)
-1 lb andouille cut crosswise 1/2-inch thick pieces
-4 lb chicken thighs, skin removed
-1 tablespoon Tony's seasoning
-1 cup all-purpose flour
-2 cups chopped onions
-1 cup chopped celery
-1 cup chopped bell peppers
-1 cup okra
-1 teaspoon salt
-1/4 teaspoon cayenne
-3 bay leaves
-9 cups chicken stock or canned low-sodium chicken broth. Add more, as needed.
-Popcorn Rice
1 tablespoon filet (optional)
-Hot sauce (optional)


  • In a large enameled cast iron Dutch oven or large pot, heat 1 tablespoon of the bacon fat over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook until browned, about 6 minutes. Remove sausage & set aside. Season the chicken with the Tony's and add in batches to the fat remaining in the pan. Cook over medium-high heat until well browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove the chicken from the pan, let cool, and then refrigerate until ready to use. Combine the remaining 1/2 cup fat/oil and the flour in the same Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook, stirring slowly and constantly for 20 to 25 minutes, to make a dark brown roux, the color of chocolate. Add the onions, celery, okra and bell peppers and cook, stirring, until wilted, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the reserved sausage, salt, cayenne, and bay leaves, stir, and cook for 2 minutes. Stirring, slowly add the chicken stock, and cook, stirring, until well combined. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, uncovered and stirring occasionally, for 1 hour. Add the reserved chicken to the pot and simmer for 1 1/2 hours, skimming off any fat that rises to the surface. Remove the pot from the heat. Using a slotted spoon, remove the chicken thighs from the gumbo and place on a cutting board to cool slightly. Remove and discard the bay leaves. Pull the chicken meat from the bones and shred, discarding the bones and skin. Return the meat to the gumbo. Stir in file powder (optional). Spoon rice into the bottom of deep bowls or large cups and ladle the gumbo on top. Serve, passing hot sauce (optional) on the side.
