Thread: Chicken Gumbo

  1. #1

    Chicken Gumbo


    * 1 whole chicken, about 4 pounds
    * 1 tbsp salt
    * 2 liters water
    * 1 cup celery, chopped
    * 1 tbsp butter
    * 1 bay leaf
    * 2 tbsp chopped parsley
    * 1/2 tsp dried leaf thyme
    * 2 cups okra (bhindi), sliced and boiled 10 minutes
    * 1 tbsp filé powder
    * 5 cups hot cooked rice


    1. Cut up the chicken and boil in salted water until tender.
    2. Remove chicken from pot. Pour broth into another container; return 6 cups of broth to the pot.
    3. If you don't have 6 cups of broth, add canned broth or bouillon.
    4. Remove chicken from bone and cut into bite-sized pieces.
    5. In a skillet, saute celery in butter; add the bay leaf, parsley, and thyme and cook for 2 minutes longer.
    6. Add add celery mixture and okra to the chicken broth; simmer 10 minutes.
    7. Add the chicken and heat through.
    8. Just before serving, add the filé powder.
    9. Serve on hot cook rice in soup plates. Serves 6 to 8.

    Note: If you don't live in US, it might be tough to find filé powder (dried sassafras leaves powder) which primarily works like a thickening agent. Just increase the quantity of Okra which has enough thickening power of itself.
