3Once chicken is cool enough to handle, remove bones and shred.
4Add 1 3/4 cup vegetable oil and allow to heat. Whisk in flour and cook until milk chocolate color is achieved, stirring constantly.
5Add onion, celery, garlic and bell pepper to roux and cook 15 to 20 minutes, continuing to stir.
6Add chicken, sausage, Tasso, stock, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaves, and kitchen bouquet and simmer for 45 minutes.
7Add 1 bunch green onion, parsley and salt and pepper, to taste. Simmer 20 more minutes.
8Serve over rice and allow people to add hot sauce, green onion and file, to taste.
