I am a Religious Cajun & Creole Cook and have been cooking Chicken Gumbo for many years. This recipe is very good. I would delete the mushrooms, add some Cayenne Pepper in place of Hot Sauce and add 1/2 tsp. dried thyme leaves for more spice. Now you are close to Creole Cooking.

Outstanding! Very flavorful. I omitted the mushrooms and added celery. I also took the advice of others and added 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth. It made for a better soupier consistency. Also, in my experience, roux made with butter is much better than making it with oil. You can even use products such as Smart Balance if you are watching fats and cholesterol.

This dish was very good. My husband even went back for 2nd's. The only thing better was if I had made Louisiana style Gumbo. The only part of the recipe I would change is when making the mixture of flour and oil is to stir continously over low to medium heat. When followed the directions I burnt the pan.
