"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

In a large skillet melt butter over medium low heat (high heat will make it burn). When melted add flour 1/3 Cup at a time stirring constantly until the roux turns dark brown. Turn off heat, add onion and green peppers and stir. When mixture has cooled the onion and green peppers will be cooked. De bone the chicken and cut into small pieces. Add the chicken to the roux, stir in some chicken broth, until pouring consistency. Add Andouille sausage, green onion and remainder of the chicken broth and cook another 15 minutes.
