The Cheesecake Factory is one of our all time favorite restaurants here and one of the things that I get whenever we eat there is the Shrimp and Chicken Gumbo. Here is our version of this wonderful dish! (Recipe at the end)
1/2 chopped yellow onion
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups shrimp stock
1 cup chopped canned tomatoes with juice
3 bay leaves
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups cooked smoked sausage, sliced diagonally
1 lb Chicken breast, cubed
2 lb shrimp, cleaned and deveined
1 cup Heavy Cream
The original gumbo recipe called for making a roux but I opted not to do it because i'm just lazy :o)
In a large sauce pan/ dutch oven sauté the onions, garlic celery and bell pepper until translucent. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and simmer over medium-low heat for 30 min to 1 hour or until done. Add the heavy cream and serve over rice.
That's one fat, happy kitty! Hope you enjoyed and happy eating!
