Garden Gumbo Recipe

2 Tablespoons flour
2 Tablespoons butter
1 onion chopped
1 green bell pepper chopped
2 cloves of garlic minced
2 cups diced smoke sausage
1 to 2 chicken breasts diced
4 cups chicken broth
One 28 oz canned tomatoes
2 cups cut okra
1 teaspoon thyme
2 bay leaves
cayenne pepper chopped fine or you can use 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste

In large pot conbime the flour and butter. cook over medium heat stirring constantly until incorportated. Add onion, pepper,and garlic. Saute for about a minute. Add sausage, chicken, broth, tomatoes, okra, and seasonings. simmer over low heat for about 50 minutes until chicken is cooked. Remove over bay leaves and serve over rice.

Sometimes I add the rice to the pot. thi is the way I usually make this dish. I just add about 1/2 cup of rice and I increase the chicken broth. This makes it truly a one dish meal.
