Chicken and andoullie gumbo

This is a recipe that I do, kind of, basically the same ingredients, but smaller portions. What do y'all think? Legit?

1 lg. stewing chicken
1 lb. andouille, sliced in 1/4 inch slices
6 lg. white or yellow onions, chopped
1 sm. bunch green onions, cut fine
1 sm. bell pepper, chopped
1 tbsp. chopped celery
1 tbsp. finely chopped parsley
1 clove garlic, chopped
Salt, black pepper and red cayenne
3/4 cup all-purpose flour (for roux)
1 cup cooking oil
6 cup hot water

Cut up chicken, wash and season with salt and pepper. Heat one cup oil in heavy skillet and fry chicken until brown. Remove chicken and put aside. Pour remaining oil into large heavy pot, for making roux. After roux is made, lower heat and add all chopped ingredients, except green onions, garlic and parsley. Cover and simmer until onions are clear, stirring occasionally. Add sliced andouille and chicken to roux mixture, cover and let simmer about 1/2 hour. Stir often during this process. Keep heat low through this point. Add water, garlic, parsley and green onions. Heat may be increased until mixture begins to boil; lower heat to simmer, cover and cook 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until chicken is tender. This yields a lot of liquid and is served over rice.

Looks good to me. I boil my chicken to make stock but I get the frying thing. Might want to use a whole cup of flour. Your onion looks a bit much. Cut that in half. Add another clove garlic. Use chicken stock vs plain water. Thats my take on it. You on the right track thats for sure.

re: Chicken and andoullie gumbo
pretty legit... I'd eat it

I don't measure but in a 12 qt black iron pot I'm sure I use almost 3x's that much flour.

But I like a pretty dark roux. Darker than most.

I'm usually double most of every thing else
And I use the largest ole hen I can find.

re: Chicken and andoullie gumbo
looks pretty good AD, as someone said, I use less onions, more garlic and chicken stock instead of plain water..
if you don't like file cooked in it, leave it on the side as an option for guests to add, that do like it..

I can not get file powder here, and I didn't think to look for it in Waycross Saturday. I will likely be making a sushi run to Waycross soon, and I will get some before I make the gumbo. The recipe I use calls for it.

That's a lot of onion. I would use two onions for one chicken. I would also throw the green onion and parsley at the end.

re: Chicken and andoullie gumbo
If you're going to fry or brown the chicken, I highly recommend Paul Prudhomme's recipe. It's excellent and the measurements make more sense than your recipe. For example, a tablespoon of chopped celery isn't worth putting it in if you want to use it. Some do. Some don't. I do.

Remove the skin from the chicken before frying. You won't regret his method or measurements.

File is not an absolute deal breaker with gumbo.

Add a couple of bay leaves and some thyme, otherwise it seems a bit bland.

Gris gris I tried Paul's recipe a few years back except I just threw in a large cut up raw chicken and let it slow cook all day. It was the best gumbo I've ever made


The chicken just pulled apart

Cit, while you may find that to be true for your taste, there are people that would say to you, "that's your opinion"..

Too much IMO. And chop this fine.

quote:

1 sm. bell pepper, chopped
I'd go with 1 large bell pepper.

quote:

1 tbsp. chopped celery
Need a good bit more than that.I use 2 or 3 stalks, and again chop pretty fine.

quote:

3/4 cup all-purpose flour (for roux)
1 cup cooking oil
I never measure, but I would use more flour than oil.

Switch to chicken stock. Makes a big difference.

I do about the same procedure, except I put the garlic in right before the chicken and sausage. And sometimes when I'm feeling lazy, I use a rotisserie chicken.

re: Chicken and andoullie gumbo
I would say to them "Put it in your own bowl" as there are many(not myself) people that are very turned off by it. It doesn't really need any cooking time to have its effect on the product so it is a no harm no foul kinda thing.
