This was an incredibly flavorful and simple soup to make today. The sausage might be hard to find if you don’t have a Whole Foods around but I’m sure you can find a substitute. This brand only has 3 grams of fat in them and they are really tasty. I bet a gumbo hasn’t been made in 30 minutes anywhere in New Orleans but I bet they couldn’t tell the difference! Enjoy!
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into cubes
1 Wellshire Farms turkey andouille sausage, sliced (found at Whole Foods)
1/2 small onion, chopped
1 small piece of celery, chopped
1/2 small red bell pepper, chopped
1 14 oz can diced tomatoes, and their juices
1 bay leaf
1 t corn starch
2 cups chicken broth
2 green onions, finely sliced
your favorite hot sauce
salt and pepper
Season the chicken with salt and pepper and brown it with the sausage in a bit of olive oil spray until the chicken is done, about 4 minutes. Add the onion, bay leaf, celery and peppers and cook another 3 minutes. Add the corn starch and cook for one minutes. Add the chicken broth and bring to boil. Season with hot sauce, I use about 1 tablespoon depending on how hot the one i choose to use is! Stir in the tomatoes and bring to a boil. Simmer for 5 minutes. Garnish with green onions and serve.
