Chicken & Sausage Gumbo

This is my version of the Creole stew so not exactly authentic but it is delicious! Two chicken breasts will easily serve six people as it is sliced into strips & the sausage helps to bulk it out too. Serve with rice or crusty bread.


Serves 6   Approx 83p per serving


Prep time 10 minutes     Cooking time 8 hours on low setting


2 skinless chicken breasts, sliced into strips

1 smoked pork sausage, sliced

2 green peppers, sliced into strips

1 onion, sliced

2 tbsp plain flour

1 tsp garlic powder (or 2 cloves of fresh garlic crushed)

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

1 heaped tsp dried oregano

1 heaped tsp dried basil

1 tsp salt


600ml chicken stock

Mix together the flour & seasonings (if you are using fresh garlic add it in with the other ingredients).


Put the chicken into a bowl, add the seasoned flour & a good pinch of salt. Toss well to make sure the chicken gets well coated.

Put the peppers, onions, sausage & chicken into the slow cooker dish. Pour over the stock & stir well.

Put on the lid & set the timer to 8 hours on low.

Serve with rice or crusty bread.
