Chicken Gumbo recipe with an authentic and rich flavor, one of New Orleans' most famous stews.

This combination of rice and broth are the two main ingredients of this famous Gumbo dish, a soup popular in southeast Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina.

Gumbo is very consumed in cold times, obviously for its great caloric contribution although it is also super easy to find or prepare at any time of the year.

It can have several denominations depending on the ingredients used to prepare the Gumbo, Seafood gumbo, with shrimp, oysters, Chicken Gumbo, Beef gumbo with veal, Turkey Gumbo with turkey and one of the most popular Duck gumbo with duck.

Some may be able to see this thick soup, others link it to French bouillabaisse soup, and it may also be confused with the broths of the Cajuns those Canadian francs that settled in Louisiana after being expelled from the former French colonies of Canada.
