Boy was this delicious!! I was looking to make a nice warm stew or roast for this freezing cold 77 degree late October evening in Houston and my husband requested Gumbo, so here we go! I looked up several healthy recipes and kind of went off on my own tangent. I will warn you that this isn't truly a gumbo because there was no rue used in the making of this gumbo-like stew!
This serves 8 people.
1.5 lbs Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast, Cubed
1 lb Andouille Sausage, or Smoked Turkey Sausage, cubed
4 Cups Low Sodium Chicken Broth
2 small cans of Spicy V8
1 Whole Sweet Onion
3 Stalks of Celery
1 Whole Bell Pepper
1 Bag of Frozen Okra
2 Tbsp Minced Garlic
3 Tbsp Worchestershire Sauce
1 Pinch of Fresh Rosemary
4 Leaves of Sage
2 Bay Leaves
1 Tbsp Red Pepper flakes
1 Tbsp Celery Salt
Lots of PHAT Spice
Coat chicken with PHAT Spice and place in the slow cooker
Toss in the sausage and all of the veggies, spread another coat of PHAT over entire mixture
Add V8 and Chicken broth until soupy
Cook on High for 4 hours or low for 6 and voila!
Serve over rice
This was an excellent side dish. I was looking for something with a slight sweet edge to it and thought of one of my favorite sauces. ABC Kecap Manis Sedang, it's medium sweet soy sauce and It's delicious and a wonderful sauce to have in your pantry.
This is what it looks like and can be found at your nearest Asian market
2 Heads of Cauliflower, chopped into large pieces
In a large bowl, coat cauliflower with Olive oil, PHAT, and Kecap Manis Sedang
Place on a baking sheet and bake on 425 for 30 minutes. Check and turn half way through.
Hope you enjoy this meal as much as we did! Happy Cooking!
