Ingredients

  • 1.5 kg chicken, cut into serving pieces
  • salt to taste, if desired
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • teaspoons finely ground white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • teaspoons ground paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic granules
  • 1 teaspoon file powder, optional
  • cups flour
  • cups corn, peanut or vegetable oil
  • ¾ cup finely chopped onion
  • ¾ cup finely chopped celery
  • ¾ cup finely chopped green capsicum
  • 9 cups chicken broth
  • cups chopped or thinly sliced smoked sausage, such as andouille or kielbasa
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced fresh garlic
  • 2 cups cooked rice

Instructions

  • Put chicken pieces in a bowl. Blend salt, peppers, mustard, cayenne pepper, paprika, garlic granules, and file powder. Rub 1 tablespoon of the mixture over the chicken. Set rest of spice mixture aside.
  • Put the flour in a bowl and add two teaspoons of the reserved spice mixture. Blend well.
  • Heat a 24 cm skillet and add the oil. Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour mixture to coat well, shaking off excess. Reserve the leftover flour.
  • When the oil is hot and almost smoking, add the chicken pieces skin side down. Cook about two minutes on one side until golden brown. Turn and cook about three minutes on the second side until nicely browned. Do this in batches so as to not crowd the pan. Drain thoroughly on paper towels.
  • Pour off all but one cup of fat from the skillet. Heat this oil over high heat until it is almost smoking and add the reserved seasoned flour. Stir rapidly and constantly with a wire whisk until the mixture is golden brown. Do not burn. This is a roux.
  • Add the chopped onion, celery and capsicum to the roux and stir to blend well. Remove from the heat.
  • Meanwhile, bring the broth to a boil in a large saucepan.
  • Add about half a cup of the roux mixture to the broth, stirring rapidly with the whisk. Continue adding the roux mixture, half a cup at a time, always stirring rapidly and constantly.
  • Add the smoked sausage and stir. Cook over high heat, stirring often from the bottom, about 15 minutes.
  • Add the chicken pieces, bay leaf and finely minced fresh garlic. Cook about 40 minutes, on medium-low, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove the chicken pieces. Cut the meat from the bones and discard the bones. Cut the chicken into cubes or shred it and add it back to the pot. Serve with white rice or potato salad (or both) spooned into the gumbo.
