Gluten Free Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken

Gluten Free Crock Pot Salsa Chicken

One night recently I asked Alan what would be an interesting flavor for a chicken. We were low on groceries and when he opened the fridge he asked whether salsa would be good. I don’t know why I had never had such a delicious idea. I pulled together a few other things I had on hand and made the easiest tastiest chicken I have ever had come out of my crock pot. This chicken fell off the bones and had an amazing flavor. I thought the leftovers would be great as chicken tacos, but I had an even better idea for the leftovers. I grabbed my clean slow cooker and made this… gluten free easy chicken and sausage gumbo.

Gluten Free Crock Pot Gumbo

Simple Gluten Free Crock Pot Gumbo ~ The Leftovers Version

I love to take leftovers and transform them into something amazing. thus the leftovers from my fantastic Gluten Free Crock Pot Salsa Chicken morphed into this outrageously good gumbo.

We live in the south. While at the grocery store I came across some frozen okra and asked Alan if he had ever tried it. Surprisingly enough he had never had this southern staple vegetable. I had always had it fried as a child. I was wondering how to make it delicious and gluten free and then it hit me… gumbo. I had picked up some Aidells Cajun Style Sausage
on special and could not wait to try it. I was super excited to get home and begin filling up my slow cooker with yum.

This recipe turned out to be so simple and so good I had two bowls. I didn’t even need to chop onions or peppers as I had reserved the leftover salsa chicken liquid and it was plenty flavorful.
