Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

Gumbo is an undisputed Louisiana staple, right up there with jazz and fluffy beignets. But what exactly is gumbo? Like all Cajun and Creole cooking, gumbo pulls its flavors and techniques from a diverse combination of African, Native American, French, and Spanish cultures. Every Cajun household has its own bespoke recipe. But the true spirit of Cajun gumbo is using what you have on hand. If you can’t find andouille, grab some kielbasa. Prefer drumsticks or chicken breast? Go for it.
