Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
1.00 cup vegetable oil
1.00 cup flour
1½ cup chopped onions
1.00 cup chopped celery
1.00 cup chopped bell peppers
1.00 pounds smoked sausage; cut 1/2” slices
1 \N (such as andouille or kiebasa)
1½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
3.00 \N bay leaves
6.00 cup water
1.00 pounds boneless chicken meat; cut 1” chunks
1.00 teaspoon rustic rub; see * note
2.00 tablespoon chopped parsley
½ cup chopped green onions

Combine the oil and flour in a large cast-iron or enameled cast-iron Dutch oven, over medium heat. Stirring slowly and constantly for 20 to 25 minutes, make a dark brown roux, the color of chocolate. Add the onions, celery, and bell peppers and continue to stir for 4 to 5 minutes, or until wilted. Add the sausage, salt, cayenne, and bay leaves. Continue to stir for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the water. Stir until the roux mixture and water are well combined. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 1 hour. Season the chicken with the Rustic Rub and add to the pot. Simmer for 2 hours. Skim off any fat that rises to the surface. Remove from the heat. Stir in the parsley, green onions, and file powder. Remove the bay leaves and serve in deep bowls. This recipe yields 4 servings.
