Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium high heat. Add the chicken and cook in batches for about 5 mins to brown all over. Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  2. Add the onion, green pepper and celery to the pan, put on the lid and cook for 5 mins, stirring occasionally until softened a little. Stir in the garlic, spices, thyme and bay leaf and cook for 1 min until fragrant. Return the chicken and any juices to the pan with the flour, stirring to coat everything. Pour in the tomatoes and stock, and bring to the boil, cook for 5 mins, then add the okra and half the sage. Turn down to a simmer, put on the lid and cook for 10 mins. Then season and serve, scattering the rest of the sage over.

Despite all the ingredients, this was just a bit dull.

The ingredients amounts and weights are not sufficient for four adults. I effectively halved everything and there was little left over and I was only feeding myself! The gumbo itself was lovely, but my advice is to take care with the portions. Full recipe review and blog with photograph at http://badzilla.co.uk/Good-Food--Chicken-Gumbo
