Spicy Shrimp and Chicken Gumbo

A hearty shrimp and chicken gumbo with lots of spicy flavor.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Cut chicken breast into bite size pieces and sauté till juices run clear.
  2. Add onion, garlic, and green peppers. Sauté till slightly tender.
  3. Add tomatoes, herbs, spices (Cajun seasoning can also be added) and broth.
  4. Simmer until it bubbles. Then add raw shrimp. Allow it to simmer for about 15 minutes.
  5. Serve over the rice.
  6. Note: I add a little "Tony Saturies" Cajun seasoning or Creole seasoning while the gumbo simmers.

i'd imagine i'd just use low salt broth and tomatoes... i love the protein to fat ratio...i sifted through lots of recipes before i decided to make this one.

Delicious. Next time I'll either reduce the liquid or increase the vegetables. Also the sauce needs to be thickened after cooking.
