Chicken Gumbo

Chicken Gumbo is a stew or soup which originated in south Louisiana. It consists primarily of a strong stock, chicken, a thickener, and the vegetable “holy trinity” of celery, bell peppers, and onion. Gumbo is often categorized by the type of thickener used: the African vegetable okra, the Choctaw spice filé powder, or the French base made of flour and fat, roux. The dish likely derived its name from the native word for either okra (ki ngombo) or filé (kombo).
