Okra With Chicken Drumsticks


  • 2 pounds of frozen okra, preferably baby okra
  • 6 chicken drumsticks
  • 1 ½ concentrated tomato juice or chopped tomatoes
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/3 olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ cup parsley, chopped


  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the chicken drumsticks with salt and pepper. Add onion and chicken to skillet and cook until onion softened and chicken browned on both sides.
  2. Add tomato juice, cover the skillet, lower the heat and cook for 15 minutes until chicken is almost done.
  3. Add okra with some parsley, and season with some more salt and pepper. Gently stir once or twice, to combine the okra with the tomato sauce and chicken. Cover the skillet and let cook on medium –low heat for 30 minutes. Do not stir while cooking – just shake the skillet occasionally until the okra is tender. Add some water if needed. Do not overcook, as the okra should remain separate and not mushy.

Romama’s Note: Serve warm or at room temperature!
