   lightly browned (3-5 minutes).  Add the rest of the vegetables, the garlic
   and the spices.  Add butter and sizzle over medium heat until the
   vegetables are limp,  about 5 minutes. Stir in the dry roux. Then stir in
   the chicken broth and simmer uncovered over low heat for 15 min. Add the
   chicken and continue to simmer for another 10-15 minutes. The sauce should
   be about as thick as a thin gravy.
   
   Serve over rice.
   
   Makes two generous servings.
