Chicken and Okra Stew is a simple dish of chicken and okra prepared and cooked with chopped tomatoes, garlic and onions.
We barely see these two ingredients together specially in the Filipino cuisine as we always associate okra with other vegetables such as pinakbet and other soupy dishes like sinigang, chicken and okra together are just unheard of. Today we will change that because I had a very interesting discovery when I try create something last weekend from the leftovers I got from the fridge.
Like most stews in the Philippines we start with gisa, a simple sauté of garlic, onions but this time with carrots and celery, as I said I want to use most of the left-over ingredients for the week. To give it some flavour I added paprika, cumin and some cayenne for some kick. The result is this amazing, thick slimy stew that is really delicious you want to lick that plate after to finish it all. How about you do you have a recipe that calls for these two ingredients together?
