Super Easy Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

A delicious, flavor-packed gumbo that you can have on the table in 45 minutes or less!


  • 8 oz andouille sausage, chopped into small pieces
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/3 c all purpose flour
  • 12 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 c onion, diced
  • 3/4 c green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 c celery, sliced
  • 1 tbsp creole seasoning
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 c chicken broth
  • 14.5 oz canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1 c frozen okra
  • 3 c cooked white rice


  • Heat dutch oven or large soup pot over medium-high heat. Add sausage and saute for 5 minutes until it begins to brown. Remove sausage to a separate plate and drain grease on a paper towel.
  • Add butter and oil to pot and stir until butter melts.
  • Slowly add in flour, whisking constantly (you may not need all of the flour).
  • Continue whisking until flour mixture is smooth and begins to brown (about 2 minutes).
  • Add chicken and saute, stirring frequently, until chicken is no longer pink.
  • Add onion, bell pepper, celery, seasoning, and garlic to pan. Saute and stir for 5-6 minutes or until vegetables are tender. If needed, add a little bit of stock to the pan to prevent ingredients from sticking.
  • Add stock and tomatoes. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to a simmer. Return sausage to pan and add okra.
  • Simmer for 10 minutes, or until okra is tender.
  • Serve over cooked white rice.


If you are able to find pre-chopped creole mix or mirepoix at your store, use 2.5 cups of the mix in place of the onion, bell pepper, garlic and celery.
