2 or 3 c. okra, chopped
4 c. water
3 sprigs parsley, chopped
1 lg. bell pepper, chopped
1 lg. onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 or 2 T. olive oil
1 can peeled, diced tomatoes
1 T. Cajun seasoning
1 tsp. salt
1 bay leaf
3 or 4 dashes hot sauce
cayenne pepper to taste

Pick chicken from bones and place in a large pot with four cups of water (you can include bones for flavor, but remove before adding other ingredients). Bring to a boil and simmer. In frying pan, saute okra, parsley, bell pepper, onion and garlic in olive oil until okra is just brown and onions are transparent. Transfer all to pot with chicken. Add all other ingredients, bring to boil, lower heat and simmer for at least one hour. Serve with rice or French bread.

Personal Notes:
This is a good way to use up leftover chicken meat. Leftover turkey could also be used. Freezes well.
