CHICKEN AND SWEET POTATO GUMBO

CHICKEN AND SWEET POTATO GUMBO

Preparation Time: 30 minutes | Cooking Time: 1 hour | Serves: 4

A recipe developed by Stephanie Moon.

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 Blacker Hall Chicken Fillets, diced into chunky pieces. Or two packs of our Diced Chicken Fillets
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into chunky pieces and placed in cold water
  • 200g Blacker Hall Roast Ham, cut from a thick slice into chunks (ideally ask our Delicatessen staff to cut a 2cm thick wedge of ham for you to dice later)
  • 1 large onion, peeled and chopped into pieces
  • 2 sticks of celery
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 x 400g can of chopped tomatoes
  • 4-6 tbsps plain flour, as needed
  • Yorkshire Rapeseed oil to cook with
  • 5 tsps of Cajun Spices
  • 2 pints of chicken stock, or a stock cube and water if preferred
  • 2 peppers – we like to use one red and one green, cut in half, seeds removed, and diced into 3cm pieces in a chunky fashion
  • 5 spring onions, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 small bunch of parsley, leaves removed from the stalk and chopped to add at the end

METHOD

Place 2 tablespoons of Yorkshire rapeseed oil in a pan (this will stop the spicy chicken from burning). Fry the onion in a pan until lightly golden, then add the chicken pieces and celery and cook out a little with the flour and Cajun spices.

Add the tinned chopped tomatoes and all the other ingredients except the spring onions and the parsley.

Cook out slowly for 30-50 minutes until the chicken is cooked and the sauce is nicely thickened and tasty. If using a slow cooker, place on a medium heat for 4 hours until cooked.

The sauce should not need any extra thickening at this stage, but check the seasoning is good.
