Cajun Chicken Gumbo


Easy and simply delicious......


  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 spring onions, sliced
  • 2 tbsp very roughly chopped parsley
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 celery sticks, sliced
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 green peppers, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • 5 tbsp plain flour
  • 4 tsp Cajun Spice Kitchen spice mix 
  • 5 skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunky pieces
  • 600ml chicken stock (made with 2 stock cubes)
  • 300g thickly sliced ham, trimmed of any fat and diced


  1. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil and fry the chicken for a few mins to brown.
  2. Tip out onto a plate.
  3. Add the onion to the pan with 1 tbsp more oil and fry for 5 mins until almost softened. Add the celery and fry for another 2 mins, then tip out to join the chicken.
  4. Add the remaining oil, bay leaves and flour to the pan and cook into a paste. Carry on cooking, stirring constantly (with a splash of water if you need), until golden brown, then stir in the spices for 2 mins.
  5. Gradually stir in the stock until smooth and saucy.
  6. Return the chicken and veg to the pan, along with the peppers, cover and simmer gently for 15 mins.
