Kottopoula Me Mpamiez (Chicken with Okra) Recipe

3 lb Cut-up chicken parts (fryer)
Salt & peper to taste
3 lb Fresh okra
1/2 c Vinegar
3/4 c Butter
1 Onion, med., chopped
1 1/2 lb Tomatoes, peeled, strained
2 c Water

Wash the chickens. (If they are whole, cut into
serving pcs.). Season lightly with salt & pepper, and
set them aside to drain. Wash the okra. Remove the
stems carefully, without cutting the okra. Line them
up in a large flat pan and sprinkle with the vinegar;
place in the sun for 30 min to 1 hour.

Brown the butter in a pot, add the chicken, and
saute until brown, then add the onion and let it
brown. Add the tomatoes and boil for 3 to 5 min.
Add water. Simmer for 30 min. Add okra and continue
to simmer, covered, until tender. Watch carefully as
this may need a little more water. The okra will have
absorbed the liquid and only the oil should remain
when the dish is cooked.
