Another low glycemic recipe for those of us with diabetes. The other family members will like it too.
If you can't find the gumbo vegetables mix just use frozen mixed vegetables plus a package of frozed sliced okra.

How to Make Easy Chicken Gumbo


  • 1Put your soup kettle or a good, big saucepane over medium heat. Put the bacon in the kettle and start it browning.
  • 2When the bacon is just starting to get crisp, add the frozen gumbo mix- no need to thaw it first--and the chicken broth.
  • 3Cut the chicken into 1/2" cubes and stir it into the soup (don't just dump it in, or it will sink to the botton of the pot and cook together into a big lump). Stir in the tomatoes, hot-pepper sauce, garlic, thyme, black pepper, and red pepper, bring the whole thing to a simmer, and let it cook until the veggies are tender.
