Gluten-Free Chicken and Sausage Gumbo Recipe
Chicken and sausage gumbo can be made gluten-free using millet flour to make the roux; serve over buttery rice.
Making gumbo can be time consuming, so speed things up by using your multi-functional pressure cooker. Garnish with chopped flat leaf parsley, if desired, and serve over rice.
I’ve never used GF anything, but cooking for a friend. I couldn’t find the millet flour so I used a Pillsbury gluten-free flour. I am from cajun country where we make gumbo all winter long. I couldn’t believe how good this recipe turned out. The only change I made was to brown the flour before I added the oil. It goes a little faster for me and easier to control. I have splashed roux on my hand before (ouch). Granny told me to brown it first. Anyway, love the outcome of this recipe.
I thought it was really good for a quick gumbo. I cooked bone in chicken thighs with a cajun spice rub in the cast iron skillet first, took them out and made the roux in the same skillet with a little extra oil and regular flour. I also used boxed chicken stock. This reduced the cooking time to an hour and 20 minutes.
This recipe was great!!!! However the file powder is hard to find in stores and is best to be ordered online however no file, okra is a great substitution. I doubled the spices for this recipe I recommend season to your liking. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs instead of a whole chicken. I still achieved lots of flavor. I will be making this again really soon.
