    Very good!! Would definitely make again!

    Super easy - the roux was cooked lower than recommended, and thus, took longer. I mixed both precooked chicken along with grilled chicken strips. I didn't use the file, and it still turned out phenomenal.

    Great!! This is my first time making gumbo and was a little concerned with my ability to cook it at the tail-end of making the roux (smelled like it was burning) but all turned out well! I had A LOT of chicken because I had it leftover from another recipe, so I didn’t measure it. I added a little Tony C and shrimp because I can’t leave anything alone and I left out the devils taint that is okra because. No. #justsaynotodevilstaintokra

    absolutely amazing!!! I was leary about the orka, but mixed in, it was great! I cut the spice down by half for my kids and just added extra on my own. Everyone loved it, full of flavor and very filling! I ordered the gumbo file on Amazon since it wasn't around here.

    This was a really awesome recipe! I added more spices just for that extra kick, but it was really a hit in my house.

    I made this yesterday and oh my goodness. It's delicious! I took the advise of a reviewer and added shrimp. I omitted the okra, because I just don't like it. Definitely making this again.

    Turned out great! I added a pound of shrimp with the sausage and chicken. Didn’t use any file but still had really good flavor and consistency.

    It was great! I used sausage instead of chicken, and didn’t use any file.. I also added extra cayenne for extra spice, and some paprika.

    This is an amazing recipe, but you should expect to spend a couple of hours making this. It’s not too spicy, but still has a nice heat. This makes a lot of gumbo, but the left overs are still delicious!!! This is good dinner idea for big family dinner nights. Beware of the Roux because if you don’t put enough butter with the flour, it can cause your roux to clump. Make sure it’s a dense half cup of butter. Or use a whole butter stick.

    This was a great recipe to make, easy to follow. Prep is a lot, but well worth it.

    Be careful of the cayenne pepper... very tasty however. I took a shortcut and bought a precooked chicken and used that instead of cooking the breast and thighs. I also added some shrimp and reduced the amount of andouille sausage by 4oz.

    Everyone loved it. I added shrimp. couldn't find Gumbo File in stores so I added a can of A&W root beer.

    This was very good. I used canola oil instead of butter for the roux and added a Cajun seasoning. Very good
