Anyone - quick - I need a gumbo recipe.

Am trying to make a chicken gumbo for tonight and cannot find a decent recipe in any of my books! Am trying to remember: the roux should be light or medium, not dark. But does it have peppers or just onion? And is it oil with the flour or butter? And is the oil olive or corn?
Then what...put the chicken bits in the roux and cook, add tomatoe?
Then the okra? Then the chicken stock? Then gumbo file and simmer..for how long?

Charger, I don't know and never made it but it sounds wonderful ...

Hey, Get on the computer and use your search engine to do a search for it. Just type in Chicken Gumbo and you will get so many versions that it is not funny!

Good Luck,

Dusty :o)

Paul, that is a great site! I put it in a special folder in my bookmarkes. I am not wild about cooking... but I do love the site.

I am going to be hiring me a couple of caretakers for the place and one of them will have to be a COOK! ROLF...

When LGOV comes in and she will, my cooking day's will be over. Hubby likes to cook, but he is messy and leave's if for me to clean up. VBG

When he is able to retire and that is coming closer by the day... he told me I could sit and trade on the market and he would do the cooking and cleaning! WOW ... Let's Rock LGOV ROLF I can hardly wait...

BTW, it is okay to spread a little hope and hype here... this is where we let our hair down...

I am having trouble sleeping past 4 AM lately... VBG !!! Wonder why Paul...

Dusty :o)
