Leftovers make this chicken gumbo an absolute breeze. The only prep you’ll need to do is to dice a bell pepper and slice some okra if you’re using fresh. That’s it! If you don’t have leftover chicken and sauce from Wine & Tomato Braised Chicken, you can use 2 cups shredded cooked chicken and 2 cups canned diced tomatoes instead of the leftover sauce.

Fast Comfort Food

With leftovers of chicken and rice in the fridge, this goes together quickly. Even our Pakistani guest declared it delicious after adding a splash of hot sauce.

Great taste and texture, fills the tummy with a dash of heat
NOT Gumbo

As a true Acadian (Cajun) who lives in the middle of Cajun Country (which is NOT New ORleans) this is not even close to be called gumbo. It may be tasty, but its not gumbo. Please research your names and please try to be authentic. No roux, you don't use diced tomatoes for "sauce", you don't cook the rice with the "gumbo", I coudl go on and on.

Might be tasty
Easy and delicious

I agree with a previous reviewer; the tomato braised chicken wasn't that good but the leftovers were fabulous in this delicious gumbo. Now, I make it whenever I have left over roasted chicken with the added canned tomatoes as suggested.

Easy to make

Our family really loved the wine & tomato braised chicken. It was fabulous to turn around the next night and whip up this soup. My daughter thought it was too spicy, so next time I would perhaps skip the cayenne and add my own at the table..

This was easy and fast
Absolutely delicious!

The Wine & Tomato Braised Chicken was OK - but taking the leftovers and making this Gumbo - super easy and best chicken gumbo I have ever had!

Easy to make.
