What's a good gumbo recipe?

I do not want a seafood gumbo, I'm don't like crab or lobster all that much I used to live down south and I miss southern food I'm 16 so I don't remember all the places

Where can I find a list of southern food?


I currently live in Maine so I can't get craw fish I'm literally 4 miles from the Canadian border

    Chicken-and-Sausage Gumbo


    1 pound andouille sausage, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices

    4 skinned bone-in chicken breasts

    Vegetable oil

    3/4 cup all-purpose flour

    1 medium onion, chopped

    1/2 green bell pepper, chopped

    2 celery ribs, sliced

    2 quarts hot water

    3 garlic cloves, minced

    2 bay leaves

    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

    2 teaspoons Creole seasoning

    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

    1/2 to 1 teaspoon hot sauce

    4 green onions, sliced

    Filé powder (optional)

    Hot cooked rice

    Garnish: chopped green onions


    Cook sausage in a Dutch oven over medium heat, stirring constantly, 5 minutes or until browned. Drain on paper towels, reserving drippings in Dutch oven. Set sausage aside.

    Cook chicken in reserved drippings in Dutch oven over medium heat 5 minutes or until browned. Remove to paper towels, reserving drippings in Dutch oven. Set chicken aside.

    Add enough oil to drippings in Dutch oven to measure 1/2 cup. Add flour, and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 20 to 25 minutes, or until roux is chocolate colored.

    Stir in onion, bell pepper, and celery; cook, stirring often, 8 minutes or until tender. Gradually add 2 quarts hot water, and bring mixture to a boil; add chicken, garlic, and next 5 ingredients. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 1 hour. Remove chicken; let cool.

    Add sausage to gumbo; cook 30 minutes. Stir in green onions; cook for 30 more minutes.

    Bone chicken, and cut meat into strips; return chicken to gumbo, and simmer 5 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaves.

    Remove gumbo from heat. Sprinkle with filé powder, if desired. Serve over hot cooked rice. Garnish, if desired.
