Gumbo- same day or freezer recipe

Both Christa and I are Louisiana girls so of course we LOVE gumbo. There are so many types, but my favorite is the basic chicken and sausage gumbo. I am going to give you a very easy recipe that you can make for your family.  You can make it the same day or let it cool off and place in freezer bags for later.  I decided to make Gumbo for my freezer meal club this month so I made lots of batches!

Place 4 1/2 quarts of water on the stove top and put on high to boil. Dump in half a jar of the Kary’s roux (8oz). Place your whole chicken, onions, bell pepper, cut up sausage, and 1/4 cup Cajun seasoning. Let boil for a good 30 minutes and then you can turn it down a bit. Total cooking time is around 2-3 hours depending how frozen your meat was.

***The gumbo might seem too spicy if you eat it the day of, but if you freeze it, when you re-head, it is perfect!

*** You can make the gumbo even easier by using skinless chicken breast.

Always freeze flat!!!
