I rarely see okra in Toronto. And, to be honest, I'm not a huge fan. So I substituted green beans.


This is another recipe from The First Ladies Cook Book. Chicken gumbo was supposedly a favorite recipe of James Munroe.

This chicken gumbo recipe is flavorful, but I'm not sure that all the steps in the recipe really helped. For example, why fry the chicken and then cook it in liquid?

fry to make chix brown
You fry before boiling to darken up the meat. Boiled only chix is pale. I often roast my chix before making soup of it.

Have you ever tried minimally cooking the okra? Put it in very near the end and don't give it time to become slimy.

Thanks for explaining about the chicken.


Okra isn't available much in Toronto.
