3 (4-ounce) packages gourmet-blend mushrooms
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 cups chopped onion
3 cups chopped celery
3 cups chopped green bell pepper
6 garlic cloves, chopped
6 bay leaves
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
3 cups chopped cooked chicken
1/4 cup chopped fresh oregano
1/4 cup fresh thyme leaves
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 cup chopped green onion
Hot cooked rice


Place mushrooms in a large roasting pan. Bake at 425° for 20 minutes; set aside.

Meanwhile, combine 2/3 cup oil and flour in a large skillet; cook over medium-high heat, whisking constantly, until roux is dark golden brown (about 15 minutes). Remove from heat, and set aside.

Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Sauté onion and next 3 ingredients in hot oil 20 minutes or until tender. Add roux, and stir well.

Stir in roasted mushrooms, bay leaves, and next 7 ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, uncovered, 1 hour. Stir in green onions, and serve over hot cooked rice.
