Instant Pot Chicken Sausage Gumbo

While you might've spent all day working on a great gumbo before, you won’t with this recipe. This flavorful dish is one of our favorite Instant Pot recipes! This recipe would go great with cornbread muffins. Serves 6 Total Time: 38 minutes


1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 1/4 lbs skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut in 1 1/2-inch pieces
1 12 kielbasa smoked sausage, sliced 1/2-inch thick
1/2 10oz  pkg. frozen cut okra, thawed
3/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup chopped green sweet pepper
3/4 cup chopped celery
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon paprika
Salt and black pepper, to taste  
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
Cooke rice of your choice, prepared according to package instructions


For brown roux, in a 6-qt. Instant Pot stir together flour and oil until smooth. Use the sauté setting to cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes until roux is the color of peanut butter, stirring constantly. Add the next 12 ingredients (through bay leaf), stir.  Lock lid in place and seal vent. Set on high pressure to cook 8 minutes.

Use the natural release method for 15 minutes. Release any remaining pressure. Open lid carefully. Remove lid and discard bay leaf. Skim off fat. Stir in green onions. Serve gumbo over hot cooked rice and corn muffins. Easy Peasy
