    Combine oils and flour in a Dutch oven or in a heavy saucepan and whisk until thoroughly mixed. Over low heat, cook roux until the color of peanut butter--about 12-15 minutes. Whisk every 20 seconds so it won't burn.
  • 3
    Turn heat to medium and add onion, celery and green pepper to roux. Stir well and often and cook about 6 minutes.
  • 4
    Stir in sausage and garlic and cook until sausage is browned, about 4 minutes. Stir in chicken chunks. Turn heat to medium high and add tomatoes, chicken stock, salt, cayenne and basil. Bring to light boil, reduce heat and simmer 45 minutes.
