CHICKEN GUMBO SOUP
Soup is one of those recipes that can be adapted to your taste. Feel free to tweak the recipe as you like.
•1 pound boneless, skinless chicken, cut into 1/2” pieces
•1 bell pepper, diced
•1 medium onion, diced
•2 ribs celery, diced
•2 cloves garlic, minced
•1 teaspoon dry basil
•About 6 cups chicken broth
•1/2 to 1 cup rice
•1 candiced tomatoes
•As much okra as you like
Sauté chicken, pepper, onion, celery, garlic and basil in a little butter or olive oil until chicken is just starting to cook.
Add 4 cups broth, rice and tomatoes. Cook at a gentle boil until chicken is done, about 20 minutes. Add more broth if necessary.
While soup is cooking, steam okra in microwave and add to soup. Taste for salt and pepper.
Can you guess what this is?
