⅓ cup all-purpose flour
1 (14 ounce) can reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast or turkey breast (10 ounces)
8 ounces smoked turkey sausage links, quartered lengthwise and sliced
2 cups sliced fresh okra or one 10-ounce package frozen cut okra, partially thawed
1 cup water
1 cup coarsely chopped onion
1 cup coarsely chopped red or green sweet pepper
½ cup sliced celery
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 cups hot cooked brown rice
For roux: In a heavy medium saucepan, cook flour over medium heat about 6 minutes or until brown, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Gradually stir broth into flour. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.
Pour thickened flour mixture into a 3½- or 4-quart slow cooker. Add chicken, sausage, okra, the water, onion, sweet pepper, celery, garlic, thyme, black pepper, and cayenne pepper.
Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 7 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 3½ hours. Skim off fat. Serve gumbo over hot cooked brown rice.
Tips: For Easy Cleanup: Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
