Ya Ya's Chicken Gumbo

Ya Ya's Chicken Gumbo is a slow cooker stew recipe that's cooked Creole-style. It's a hearty dish that has the perfect amount of seasoning, flavor and ingredients. Cream of celery soup and chicken broth provide the base for this gumbo, while thyme, diced tomatoes, and hot pepper sauce add delicious flavor. Okra, celery, and green pepper add color and freshness to your meal. We reccomend serving it over your favorite type of rice.

Never having gumbo before...this recipe looks like a good enough reason to finally give it a try. I can only imagine the aroma throughout the house while it's cooking and I can't wait to taste it. Hmmmm...is there a certain rice or side that generally goes with a gumbo or can it be eaten alone like a soup or stew? Maybe corn bread...yum!

14 Chicken breasts sounds like a lot. Is this a miss print? How much chicken by weight should it be appox.
