This is my own recipe that I make for my family. Its simple and always turns out great. I am a true Cajun so you know its going to be good.
In a large pot melt rue and mix with a small amount of chicken broth add seasoning mix (vegetables) and seasoning (tony's). Cook until veggies are tender. Add chicken and sausage and stir in the chicken broth. Add water if needed. Let cook for 30 minutes. Serve over rice. Top with File for authentic Cajun cuisine
You can make your own Roux from scratch if you wish, 1 cup flour and 1/2 cup oil. May need to add a little more if Roux gets to thick. On low heat continually stir until dark, do not let it burn! it takes about 30 minutes this way, thats why i like to use the jar Roux. You can also use a onion, bell pepper, (one green one red) and green onions instead of buying the frozen seasoning mix.
