  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).

Happy Crocking!

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.
