Chicken Gumbo

Chicken Gumbo

We are having some cool weather down here in Tampa FL. and it is nice for a change. So I decided to make a pot of Chicken Gumbo for dinner this evening and it was so good! I love this recipe because it is really easy to make and you can even cook the Chicken Gumbo in a crock pot and let it simmer all day. Some of us as we age have to watch our waist line and this recipe is Low Fat and you can not tell the difference.

So ladies grab your apron and we are going to make some Chicken Gumbo for dinner!
