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.

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. Pros: Might be tasty Cons: This is gumbo in name only:( Read More
