Hap­py to share this Slow Cook­er Low-Calo­rie Chick­en Gum­bo from my Moth­er-in-law. While on Weight Watch­ers she made it often, and because it is so good she still makes it. Your fam­i­ly will tru­ly enjoy this EASY and TASTY dish! Great to use left­over grilled chick­en too.

  1. Spray non­fat cook­ing spray in a large skil­let. Place gar­lic, cel­ery and veg­gies in skil­let and sauté over medi­um-high heat, stir­ring fre­quent­ly, about 2 min­utes.
  2. Add in flour and cook for 1 more minute.
  3. Com­bine toma­toes, chick­en, chick­en broth, bay leaf, salt, pep­per and Cre­ole sea­son­ing, and stir into skil­let.
  4. Trans­fer to slow cook­er to meld the fla­vors togeth­er.
  5. Cov­er. Cook over Low for 1–2 hours.

Option­al: Serve over a bed of rice (pre­pared per the pack­age instruc­tions), or sub­sti­tute rice with Shi­rata­ki Noo­dle (one Brand Mir­a­cle Noo­dle).

I made this recipe and although it didn’t come out quite as planned (I’m hav­ing to trans­fer every­thing over to our weight sys­tem). It was slight­ly more liq­uid than expect­ed so I added pota­toes and served in a bowl with crusty bread. My hus­band now calls it gum­bo stew which is amaz­ing as he doesn’t like “stews” but he went back for more! Thank you so much for your amaz­ing recipes, I am hap­pi­ly work­ing my way through them. I have one fussy eater and two small chil­dren who are final­ly enjoy­ing dif­fer­ent foods (once I get the recipes right,… Read more »


I did not fol­low this exact­ly, but it is deli­cious. This one is a lit­tle too much prep for me, I grav­i­tate towards one-pot-throw-it-all-in-all-day meals due to my family’s sched­ule, so I just put all the ingre­di­ents togeth­er except the chick­en and okra, and instead of flour I used 2T of quick-cook­ing tapi­o­ca. I added the chick­en breasts uncut and still par­tial­ly frozen, and some turkey sausage, and more veg­gies to fill up my pot some more.

Just made this and hus­band loved it! Now I must try your oth­er gum­bo recipes too. Anoth­er favorite I will be adding to my recipe ‘keep­er’ album. We have enjoyed ALL of your recipes that I have tried, and I crock a lot! I save them in a pho­to album on my phone for quick access to ingre­di­ents for gro­cery shop­ping and when prepar­ing (and shar­ing with friends). Here’s what we’ve tried so far and they are all ‘keep­ers’!
