    Ingredients:

    3/4 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1/4 cup canola oil
    1/4 cup flour
    1 cup chopped yellow onion
    1 cup chopped green bell pepper
    1/2 cup chopped celery
    1 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
    2 cups sliced okra
    1 bay leaf
    1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes, with their liquid
    1 tablespoon hot sauce
    3/4 pound cooked andouille sausage, sliced into 1/2-inch rounds
    12 shrimp, peeled and deveined
    Cooked white or brown rice

    Method:

    Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and brown on both sides, about 5 minutes total. Remove chicken with a slotted spoon, letting any oil drain back into the skillet, and place in a crock pot. Scrape up any browned bits in the skillet and add them to the crock pot. Set aside.

    Add remaining 3 tablespoons oil to the skillet and heat until hot. Add flour and cook, stirring constantly, until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Carefully add onions, peppers, and celery and cook until the vegetables start to wilt, about 2 minutes. Add 1 1/2 cups of the broth and stir until smooth and incorporated. Pour mixture into the crock pot, add okra, bay leaf, tomatoes and hot sauce; cover and turn crock pot to low. Cook for 7 to 8 hours, adding remaining 1/2 cup chicken broth, if necessary. 30 minutes before serving, add sausage and turn crock pot to high. 5 minutes before serving, add shrimp. Ladle gumbo into bowls and serve with rice.

    thanks for sharing this recipe. I wonder what I can use in place of Okra.

    Since Okra is not really the main ingredient per se, you could leave it out if you like. Not everyone likes okra. I am sure the flavors will still be wonderful!
