Total Time
1 Hour 10 Mins
Serves 6 (serving size: 1 cup stew and 1/2 cup rice)

The cooked flour and oil mixture, known as roux, thickens this gumbo-inspired stew. Marinara sauce adds body, enriches the color and taste, and provides slightly tangy notes for a more rounded flavor.

How to Make It

Heat flour and oil in a Dutch oven over medium-low heat; cook for 5 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring frequently with a whisk. Add onion, bell pepper, celery, thyme, sausage, and garlic; increase heat to medium-high, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring mixture frequently. Add ground red pepper and chicken; cook for 1 minute. Stir in marinara sauce and chicken broth; bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until chicken is tender. Remove from heat; stir in green onions. Serve over rice.

This was awesome. I don't think my andouille sausage was chicken, and I used pasta sauce that I had on hand.I served over Brown rice. Yummy.

Filling and delicious. My store didn't have chicken andouille sausage, subbed with Johnsonville Chicken Sausage w/ Cheese & Chipotle Peppers (made for a good sub). Great for a cold evening.

This was excellent! I made it with chicken the first time then tried it with shrimp. Both came out delicious. Put the shrimp in and let sit for about 10 minutes or until shrimp was cooked.

This was super tasty. I used kielbasa instead of chicken sausage and followed the recipe exactly for everything else. I will make again.

It was easy to make and pretty tasty. I could not find low-sodium marinara, but regular suits me just fine.

Very good and easy. I used chicken fennel sausage leftover in the freezer. Robust flavor for a quick and easy meal. I would make this again.
