Cajun smothered okra with falling of the bone tender chicken, and smoked sausage. Serve it with hot rice & crusty french bread, and you have an amazing meal!
I LOVE cajun smothered okra with chicken and sausage. But then again, y’all know I have a thing for cajun and creole food. Like seriously. I can never get enough of Seafood Gumbo, Red beans and rice, and Jambalaya. I don’t know if it’s because of my Louisiana roots, or what, but I can never pass up a good old fashioned cajun or creole dish!
I love making smothered okra with chicken & sausage because it’s not only freaking AH-MAZING, but it’s also inexpensive. The main ingredients are chicken, smoked sausage, okra, onions, celery, and bell pepper. ALL super affordable ingredients.
For the chicken I like to use party wings ( the wingettes & drumettes), however chicken thighs, and legs can be used(some people even use chicken breast). As for the sausage, I used cajun andouille sausage is used for this dish. HOWEVER, you can use regular smoked sausage ( hot or spicy).
To season this dish I used as nice amount of garlic, black pepper, and cajun seasoning. If you’d like to add more spice to your dish, feel free to add in some red pepper flakes.
To achieve a nice rich brown color, I added in a nice amount of paprika. Adding the paprika is completely optional!
