Copy cat recipe of Popeye's cajun gravy recipe. It even has the tiny little bits of meat that the original has and just the right Kick of Cajun flavor.
3 cups gravy
1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 chicken gizzards
1 small onion diced
2 garlic cloves diced
1 small can of diced green chilis (for less spice use diced green bell peppers)
1/4 cup ground pork sausage(your favorite)
2 cups water
14 ounces chicken broth
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon flour
2 teaspoons milk
2 teaspoons distilled white vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh coarse ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
How to make it:
Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large saucepan.
Saute chicken gizzard in the oil for 4 to 5 minutes until cooked.
Remove gizzard from the pan and finely mince.
Next put your ground pork in the pan and cook till brown
Use a potato masher to smash meat into tiny pieces as it browns.
Add onion and garlic and cook and lastly add your diced green chilis
Add water and chicken broth to the pan.
Immediately whisk in cornstarch and flour.
Add remaining ingredients and bring the mixture to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer gravy for 30 to 35 minutes or until thick.
This is delicious over mashed potatoes and served with your favorite chicken recipe
