Chicken and Sausage Gumbo from the "Big Easy"



Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

Prepare to be spiced up with rocking Cajun flavors that will make you want to dance to a jazz tune on the streets of New Orleans!

Our chicken and sausage gumbo will have you crying for more spicy flavors with its combination of traditional southern-inspired veggies and juicy flavors of tasty chicken, flavorful andouille sausage, and succulent shrimp. It’s the most healthy and delicious gumbo around!

Not only is gumbo one of the most popular dishes in Louisiana’s culture, it is also one of the oldest. Dating back to the early nineteenth century, Creole people from New Orleans began making gumbo as early as 1803, and the flavor palette has grown more plentiful ever since.

Traditional chicken and sausage gumbo is prominent all over the city of New Orleans. A staple in local culture, chicken and sausage gumbo with seafood is one of the most popular forms of gumbo. Traditional seafood gumbo is a tasty blend of some of your favorite sea creatures, including large gulf shrimp, oysters, and crab. Our recipe throws chunks of lean chicken into the mix, along with some traditional veggies, like okra.

Okra is popular in the South, and it is an essential part of every gumbo recipe. Our chef uses chopped okra in combination with a blend of cooked mixed veggies, and a variety of peppers to kick up the flavor.

These veggies are blended with an array of Cajun spices and thickened with a dark roux made from a special blend of our own unique vegetable oil.

Traditional gumbo can’t be complete without chicken or shrimp, which is why our recipe combines both. Cooked in a variety of authentic Cajun spices using only lean chunks of chicken breast, our chicken and sausage gumbo packs the flavor in every bite with our healthy combination of chicken, sausage, and shrimp.

Not only does our gumbo give you delicious chicken and shrimp, but it also spices up your taste buds with perfectly sliced pieces of anduoille sausage.

A traditional ingredient in Cajun cooking, anduoille sausage is of the spicy variety and is used in all sorts of Louisiana-inspired dishes. It’s the spicy link that kicks our ingredients up a notch.

So, indulge in the Creole culture and jazz up your plate with our chicken and sausage gumbo dish courtesy of our chefs at BistroMD!
