This classic Louisiana stew, thickened and flavored with okra, is traditionally served over white rice, but crusty French bread would also be good for soaking up the rich broth. For a spicier stew, add a dash or two of hot sauce.

Cook's Notes

In place of the chicken thighs, you can use leftover chicken or other meats, such as turkey or ham; if you do, skip step one, and add just before serving.

    Where's the broth? I had to go to another site for another gumbo recipe to get the amount of chicken broth to use. I would also recommend making a roux w/ the fat that remained in the pot after cooking the chicken and cook the roux 'til it is quite dark - the other site said "until it looked the color of a rusty nail". Sorry, Martha, but this recipe let me down.

    Is there something that can be used in place of okra? I am very allergic.

    This turned out well, but it took me about 90 minutes to prepare and simmer. Make sure to use andouille sausage (I used a smoky chicken variety from Whole Foods) and the okra to achieve the authentic gumbo spiciness and consistency. I also added some chopped fennel and carrots for extra fiber and flavor, and I used a one-quart box of chicken broth for half of the water. A can of petite diced tomatoes with olive oil and garlic (instead of fresh tomatoes) added to the heartiness of the stew.

    Don't know what andouille is, so will use turkey sausage, also will use the turkey stock. Okra! what's that, picture on a can looks horrid. I'm making a face while writing about it. Will try some other green that I like and know what it tastes like. but definately will try the recipe, thanks Martha

    pretty decent, light tasting gumbo. prep time was a cinch. used some trader joe's chicken/turkey andouille that added some flavor, but maybe not as much as a traditional pork andouille. also would suggest maybe using chicken stock rather than water. all in all, good stuff, but might not make again.
