  • 1 chicken, about 4 pounds, cut up, or use parts
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 ribs celery, sliced
  • 1 large sweet or yellow onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • pinch thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 carrots, sliced
  • 3 to 4 medium potatoes, peeled, cut in cubes
  • 1 cup pearl onions, peeled, or use frozen or canned, drained pearl onions
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 to 12 ounces chicken sausage or other smoked sausage
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • salt and pepper, to taste


Wash chicken and cut up; pat dry and remove any excess fat. Heat 1 tablespoon butter and olive oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven; add celery,onion, and chicken and brown chicken pieces slowly on all sides. Add the broth, thyme, Cajun seasoning, and black pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 45 minutes. Remove chicken pieces and let cool slightly. Skim any visible fat from the broth. Meanwhile, add carrots, potatoes, and onions to the broth; cover and continue simmering.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons butter over medium-low heat; sauté the smoked sausage until browned. Stir in 1/4 cup flour until well blended with the fat. Add the sausage mixture to the simmering stew.

Remove chicken from the bones; chop and add to the stew. Bring the stew back to a simmer; cover and continue cooking until vegetables are tender and stew is thickened. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
Serves 6 to 8.
