Yet another great use for leftover chicken!!
1 pound sausage, cut into thick slices (the recipe calls for smoked sausage but I prefer the hot ones; you can even use the sweet ones, depending on your family’s taste)
2 tablespoons oil
4 tablespoons flour
1 onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 green pepper, chopped
4 cups chicken broth (you can use the boxes of Imagine chicken or no-chicken broth if you don’t have any homemade)
1 (29 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 to 2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
4 cups chopped cooked chicken
Cook sausage over high heat in a Dutch oven, stirring often, until browned. Add oil and whisk in flour. Add onion, celery, garlic and green pepper; sauté for about 5 minutes. Stir in broth, tomatoes and seasoning. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in chicken and heat through. Serve over rice.
