Full Answer

Season 3 large boneless skinless chicken breast halves with salt and pepper. Heat 1/4 cup of vegetable oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat and brown the chicken. Remove the chicken, add 1 pound of 1/4-inch-sliced smoked sausage, then brown and remove. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour over the oil, add 2 tablespoons of margarine and stir over medium heat for about 10 minutes until browned. Allow to cool.

Reduce the heat to low and add 3 tablespoons of margarine to the pot. Add 8 minced cloves of garlic, along with 3 stalks of celery and a green bell pepper, both chopped, and cook for 10 minutes. Add 1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper to taste and 1/4 bunch of coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley. Cook while stirring for 10 minutes. Add 4 cups of hot water with 5 beef bouillon cubes and whisk to combine.

Return the chicken and sausage to the pot, bring to a boil and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook for 45 minutes. Add a 14-ounce can of stewed tomatoes, 2 cups of sliced okra and cover and simmer for another hour. Add 1/2 pound of small cooked shrimp, 4 sliced green onions and chopped parsley just before serving.
