CAJUN CHICKEN AND SAUSAGE GUMBO
This is a Cajun-style gumbo made with a seasoned roux, a classic from the bayous of south Louisiana. I revised the recipe after many, many trials. Serve it hot over cooked rice or with potato salad.

- Heat the oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. When hot, whisk in flour. Continue whisking until the roux has cooked to the color of chocolate milk, 8 to 10 minutes. Be careful not to burn the roux. If you see black specks in the mixture, start over.
- Stir onion, bell pepper, celery, and sausage into the roux; cook 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook another 5 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and Creole seasoning; blend thoroughly. Pour in the chicken broth and add the bay leaf. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, uncovered, for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Stir in the chicken, and simmer 1 hour more. Skim off any foam that floats to the top during the last hour.

CAJUN CHICKEN AND SAUSAGE GUMBO
Some people think that New Orleans cuisine is Cajun cuisine. It isn't. It's Creole cuisine, where most sauces and gravies are prepared with tomato. To delight in true Cajun cuisine, one must travel west of New Orleans into Acadiana, where, in my opinion, the food is much better! Just be sure that you like spicy because most of it is highly seasoned. My mother taught me how to make Gumbo. I usually make enough to freeze in portions so that I'll always have some on hand. Potato salad is traditionally served as a side dish.....oh, and of course, some good, crusty, garlic french bread to sop up the juice. :)

- Brown chicken thighs and sausage in a cast iron dutch oven. If you don't have a cast iron dutch oven, just be sure to use a heavy pot, such as a Magnalite or something similar. Remove from pot and let cool.
- Add oil to the pot. With wire whisk, blend in flour. Continue stirring constantly over medium to medium-high heat until flour is the color of chocolate syrup. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO CONSTANTLY STIR THIS! If the roux burns, there's no fixing it. You'll have to start over, completely. This step will take a while to achieve the chocolate color and is the most time-consuming part of the recipe. Once the flour has browned to this point, quickly add onions, bell pepper, and celery. Cook until onions are transparent. Add enough water or chicken broth to fill the pot about half way. Simmer.
- Meanwhile, debone chicken. Add sausage to the pot.
- Add minced garlic, salt, and cayenne.
- Let simmer for about an hour. In the last 20 minutes, add deboned chicken. If needed, add enough water or broth to cover the chicken.
- With a large spoon, skim as much fat as possible from the top.
- Serve in a soup plate, over hot cooked rice.
- Sprinkle green onions, parsley, and file in the bowls.
- MMMMMMMMMM -- good stuff!

- Mix 1/4 cup of flour with the seasonings and toss the chicken in the mixture until well coated.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet and sauté the chicken over medium-high until browned. I usually do this in batches draining the cooked chicken on paper towels. If the flour in the pan starts to really burn and smoke, turn down the heat or, discard and start with fresh oil. However, I usually can get it all done with one batch.
- Once the chicken is done, combine 1 cup of flour and lard over medium-high heat to make a dark, dark, roux. Stir constantly while it cooks. It should look like burnt peanut butter, this is tricky because the darker the better. But if you go too far and scorch it, it's over.
- When the roux has reached the right color remove from heat and add the chopped vegetables. Stir to remove some heat from the roux.
- Return the roux to the stove over medium-high heat and add the stock, stirring until well blended.
- Bring this mixture to a boil, and add the chicken, sausage, and garlic. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour.
- Taste and adjust salt, and cayenne pepper (although it's usually plenty hot, it's a personal preference).
- Serve over hot cooked rice.
CAJUN-STYLE CHICKEN AND SMOKED SAUSAGE GUMBO
This might not be true Cajun but it is quite good! The best gumbo needs time to cook, so make this recipe when you have some time, it will take just over 3 hours to make, that is including boiling the chicken. Although it is pretty hard to improve on this gumbo, please don't omit the browning your sausage step firstly, it will bring out more flavor to the gumbo! if possible use andouille sausage for this if not any good-quality dry smoked sausage will do fine! The black beans are optional, I most always add them in! If you like extreme heat then add in cayenne or red pepper to taste. Don't let the amount of oil scare you, it will rise to the top when the gumbo is cooking and will be skimmed it off the top. Serve the gumbo over hot cooked rice.

- Lightly brown chicken thighs in a tablespoon of oil in a cast iron dutch oven or heavy bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Remove chicken from pot and set aside to cool. Add the sausage slices to the same pot and cook until lightly browned on both sides. Remove to paper towels to drain. Add the vegetable oil to the pot over medium-low heat. Using a wire whisk, blend in the flour. Continue cooking and whisking constantly until flour is a dark reddish brown/dark brown. Whisk constantly or it will scorch; this step will take about 1 hour. Once the roux has finished cooking, quickly stir in chopped onions, bell pepper, and celery. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the chicken broth and enough water to fill the pot about half full. Bring to a bubble, then reduce heat to low/medium-low and simmer uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes. Add chicken and sausage to the pot. Removed the skin and as much fat as possible from the chicken before adding to the pot. If needed, add a little more water just enough to cover the chicken. Add the garlic, salt, cayenne, black pepper, and BeaZell's seasoning. Let simmer gently for about an hour. Remove chicken from gumbo and de-bone, if desired. Then add the meat back to the gumbo. Stir in the green onions and parsley and continue simmering for another 15 minutes. With a large spoon or a couple wadded up paper towels, skim as much fat as possible from the top of gumbo. Serve gumbo in shallow bowls with a scoop of hot cooked white rice. Add a sprinkle of gumbo filé. Garnish top with additional green onions, if desired. Serve with potato salad on the side and toasted French bread. Enjoy!
