Louisiana Gumbo

No need to work all day for the slow cooked flavor of this gumbo.  It starts with the seasoning blend featured in my Soups eCookbook and takes just 15-20 minutes when you start with pre-cooked chicken.

We usually enjoy this soup with a batch of Cheese and Garlic Biscuits!

2 tablespoons oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces (see make ahead tip here)
1 pound smoked sausage, sliced
1 Louisiana Gumbo Seasoning Blend*
1 15-oz can diced tomatoes
4 cups water
1 8-oz package frozen okra


  1. In a large soup pot, heat the oil over medium high heat. When hot, add the chicken and sausage. Stir and cook until the chicken is no longer pink in the middle. (If starting with pre-cooked chicken, just put it and the sausage into the pot without the oil and jump to step 2)
  2. Add the seasoning blend, diced tomatoes and water. Bring to a slow boil and then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for about 10 minutes.
  3. Add the okra at this point and cook for another 5 minutes, or until the okra is warmed through. Cooking too long will make the okra gummy.

Serve over rice and with a shake of hot pepper sauce as desired.
