    3 large boneless skinless chicken breast halves

    Salt and pepper

    1/4 cup vegetable oil

    1 pound smoked sausage, cut into 1/4-inch slices

    1/2 cup all-purpose flour

    5 tablespoons margarine

    1 large onion, chopped

    8 cloves garlic minced

    1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped

    3 stalks celery chopped

    1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

    1/4 bunch flat leaf parsley, stems and leaves, coarsely chopped, plus chopped leaves for garnish

    4 cups hot water

    5 beef bouillon cubes

    1 (14-ounce can) stewed tomatoes with juice

    2 cups frozen sliced okra

    4 green onions, sliced, white and green parts

    1/2 pound small shrimp, peeled, deveined and cooked


    Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken until browned on both sides and remove. Add the sausage and cook until browned, then remove. Sprinkle the flour over the oil, add 2 tablespoons of margarine and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until brown, about 10 minutes. Let the roux cool.

    Return the Dutch oven to low heat and melt the remaining 3 tablespoons margarine. Add the onion, garlic, green pepper and celery and cook for 10 minutes. Add Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper, to taste and the 1/4 bunch parsley. Cook, while stirring frequently, for 10 minutes. Add 4 cups hot water and bouillon cubes, whisking constantly. Add the chicken and sausage. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 45 minutes. Add tomatoes and okra. Cover and simmer for 1 hour. Just before serving add the green onions, shrimp and chopped parsley.

    Gumbo was like a party. You have a big pot and everyone brings something to throw in. You start with a roue and make a fish stock with fish racks and even the heads and add the stock to the roue in a big pot. Then you add ingredients crab legs, chicken fish anything you have around and you add either filet or okra to thicken it. you can also throw in lots of vegetables, greens, onions, tomatoes, celery whatever you have around. You can spice it up with chilies season it with herbs sparsely salt and pepper and spices
