Easy Chicken and Sausage Stew

Yield

Serves 6 to 8

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound lean smoked sausage, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups water
  • 3 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 (14.4-ounce) bag frozen pepper stir-fry (I used Bird's Eye)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
  • Shredded Pepper Jack Cheese (optional)

Directions

  1. Cook sausage in a Dutch oven over medium heat until browned (about 10 minutes). Remove sausage, reserving 1 tablespoon of drippings; discard remaining drippings. Set sausage aside.
  2. Add oil to pan. Add flour and cook, stirring constantly, until roux is caramel colored (about 10 min).
  3. Gradually stir in water; bring to a boil. Add sausage, chicken, frozen vegetables, garlic and Creole seasoning to pan. Simmer, uncovered 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Top with shredded Pepper Jack cheese, if desired.
