Whistler's Walk Cajun Cafe Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

Gumbo Ingredients:

  • 1 chicken
  • 4 links hot sausage
  • 5 onions
  • 5 to 6 ribs celery
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • 1 Tbsp chopped garlic
  • 1/3 bunch fresh parsley
  • 4 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp Tabasco sauce
  • 1 Tbsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 4 to 6 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 8 quarts water


Boil the chicken in the 8 quarts of water, remove, cool and bone the chicken. Be sure to save the broth. Cut sausage into rings and brown either in the oven or in pot. Chop all the veggies.

Now make your roux (see below). When it gets to the right color, immediately add celery and onions and cook until wilted, stirring constantly. Slowly add broth, stirring continuously. When this is all together, add chicken, sausage and other ingredients and cook for about 3 hours over medium to low heat.

Serve over hot rice topped with fresh green onions. In Louisiana, they like to serve potato salad as a side dish and, of course, hot-toasted French bread.

Roux Ingredients:

  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour


Heat the oil to hot, add flour, stirring constantly, cook over medium heat until the color of dark chocolate. You must stir it continuously.
