Sausage and Chicken Gumbo

We have officially made and tried gumbo.  We didn't mind it, but it wasn't our favorite.  Glad we're stepping outside of the box a bit : )

½ lb turkey kielbasa sausage, cut in small cubes
1 T oil
3 T flour
1 boneless chicken breast, cut in small pieces
6 oz can crab meat, drained
14 oz can Italian diced tomatoes, undrained
14 oz can chicken broth
6 oz water
2 c frozen cut okra
1 T Worcestershire Sauce
1 bag of uncle ben's brown ready rice (90 second kind)

In large soup pot, sauté kielbasa in oil until lightly browned. Sprinkle flour evenly over kielbasa. Sauté until
flour is browned. Add small amount of water if needed to prevent burning. Add chicken pieces and sauté 5 min, until barely done. Add & stir in crab, tomatoes, chicken broth, water, okra, Worcestershire sauce and rice. Heat thoroughly and simmer 15-20 min, until okra is just done.  Serve with french bread and butter.
