In less than half an hour, you be down in the Delta with this super-simple gumbo. Just simmer leftover chicken with pantry and freezer staples, then serve over rice. (Our recipe uses leftover Lemon-Thyme Roast Chicken with Artichokes and Herbed Brown Rice, but you can adapt to whatever chicken and rice you have on hand.) Adjust the spice level by choosing a mild or hot salsa.
