Calories 1765 kcal


  • 1 Medium Pot


  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast or thigh
  • 2 quarts water to cook the chicken
  • 1 pound okra 1″ pieces, or frozen
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup yellow onion ¼” dice
  • 1 ½ cup bell pepper ¼” dice, green and red
  • cup celery ¼” dice
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 cups diced canned tomatoes
  • 12 ounces andouille sausage cooked, ½” slices
  • 1 dried bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon gumbo filé Zatarain’s


  • Cook the Chicken: Place the chicken in a medium-sized pot and add 2 quarts of water to cover. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes or until completely done.
  • The interior should be 160°F (71°C) or higher. Chicken broth should be strained and saved.
  • Take the cooked chicken from the pot and shred it. Once it has cooled, shred it into little pieces. Cover and leave out.
  • Cook the okra: Place the okra and 1/2 cup water in a medium pot. Boil, then turn down the heat and cover. Cook for 7 to 9 minutes, stirring periodically, until the vegetables are soft. Drain after transfer to a colander, then set aside.
  • Create the roux by combining the butter and flour in a sizable dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot. Simmer for about 15 minutes, whisking regularly over medium heat, until a dark brown roux forms.
  • If necessary, turn up the heat if you don’t notice a noticeable color change. Stir regularly for the final five minutes to prevent the roux from burning.
  • Add the celery, onion, bell peppers, and garlic to the pot and sauté the vegetables. About 8 to 10 minutes of sautéing should result in soft vegetables.
  • Sausage should be cooked before being added, along with tomatoes and boiled okra. Cook for 10 minutes while occasionally stirring.
  • Seasonings should be added, including salt, pepper, cayenne, basil, thyme, and basil.
  • Add 4 cups of the chicken broth that was set aside and simmer. Loosely cover the saucepan and simmer over medium-low heat, stirring now and again, for about 30 minutes, or until the gumbo thickens.
  • The chicken will need to simmer for an additional 15 minutes after being added.
  • Gumbo Filé should be added after the heat has been turned off. Reboiling after adding tends to make gumbo stringy; instead, taste it and add additional salt and pepper as necessary. If you like a less thick consistency, increase the amount of chicken broth.
  • Scoop the dish and serve it with steamed rice.
