  • The roux is simple. Equal parts oil and flour over medium heat for about 30-35 minutes. Stir constantly. When it has the apperance of a peanut butter color, add diced onions, bell peppers, garlic and celery. Sautee for about 5 minutes. Add one spoonful at a time to chicken stock, stirring well. Let that cook over medium heat for 1 hour. Add a few dashes of worchesher, cayenne, salt, pepper and gumbo file'. Add cooked chicken and continue to cook for 1.5 hours. Season to taste and serve it with rice. (I also add andouille sausage to my chicken gumbo)

  • Also, I do not recommend the roux in a jar. It's just a personally preference and I think my grandma would probably roll over in her grave if I used it. :-)
