  • 4 green onions, sliced, white and green parts
  • 2 cup frozen sliced okra
  • 1 (14 oz) can stewed tomatoes with juice
  • 1/2 lb small shrimp, deveined and cooked
  • 5 beef bouillon cubes
  • 1/4 bunch flat leaf parsley, stems and leaves
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 5 tablespoons margarine
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 lb smoked sausage, cut into 1/4 inch slices
  • 3 large chicken breast halves
  • 4 cups hot water

Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken until browned on both sides and remove. Add the sausage and cook until browned, then remove. Sprinkle the flour over the oil, add 2 tablespoons of margarine and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until brown, about 10 minutes. Let the roux cool.


Return the Dutch oven to low heat and melt the remaining 3 tablespoons margarine. Add the onion, garlic, green pepper and celery and cook for 10 minutes. Add Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper to taste and the 1/4 bunch parsley. Cook, while stirring frequently, for 10 minutes. Add 4 cups hot water and bouillon cubes, whisking constantly. Add the chicken and sausage. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 45 minutes. Add tomatoes and okra. Cover and simmer for 1 hour. Just before serving add the green onions, shrimp and chopped parsley.
