Bettyjean's chicken gumbo, from Macheesmo
Brush up on your roux-making skills, or follow the good step-by-step instructions from Nick of Macheesmo, who found this recipe for Bettyjean's chicken gumbo in an old cookbook he borrowed from a friend. (Who's Bettyjean? Nick doesn't know, but he loves her gumbo.) Roux is the foundation of gumbo, the famous stew from the American South. This version features chicken, and is a great make-ahead-and-freeze dish. Think about this for your next Soup Swap.
