Chicken and Andouille Sausage Gumbo -Gumbo is a quintessential dish in Cajun cuisine. But, what is Gumbo? The word Gumbo actually refers to Okra. Okra is used as a thickening agent to this Cajun soup; thus the name of the soup became Gumbo. An Okra Gumbo can contain chicken, sausage or any kind of seafood. My favorite Gumbo is Chicken & Sausage Gumbo or a Seafood Gumbo containing shrimp, crawfish, crabmeat and oysters.--Chicken and Sausage Gumbo Recipe Now Doesn't That Look Good!
