Easy Chicken Gumbo from Southern living p 104-106

1/2 cup peanut oil-I didn't use oil due to the fat contain in the drumsticks I threw in the crockpot
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 cup chopped sweet onion
1 cup chopped bell peppers
1 cup chopped celery
1 1/2-3 tsp of cajun seasoning
2 tsp minced garlic
3 (14 oz) chicken broth used 3 bullion cubs and 6 cups of water
1/2 lb andouille sausage, cut into 1/4 thick slices-used smoke cocktail sausages instead
Okra Pilau-used plain okra
4 cups chopped chicken-threw 4 drumsticks in the crock pot instead

1. heat oil in large ducth oven over meduim heat; gradually whisk in flour, and cook, whisking constantly 5 minutes or until flour is chocolate colored. (do not burn mixture)

2. Reduce heatot meduim. Stir in onion and next 4 ingredients and cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes. Gradually stire in chicken broth and sausage. Increase heat to meduim-high, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring occassionally, 20 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, prepare Okra Pilau. Stir chicken into gumbo; cook stirring occassionally, 5 minutes. Serve with okra pilau.

Okay, I threw the bullion cubs, six cups of water, seasoning, cocktail sausage and drum sticks into crock pot cooked them over night. Will pull chicken out to de-bone, /throw chicken meat back in, along with vegetables. Cook all day..add rice about 15 minutes before I serve.
