Smothered Chicken and Okra Recipe

In Cajun cooking, we use okra quite often.  I grew up eating it fried, boiled, smothered, pickled, and added to gumbo.  I love, love, love my okra.

This is one of my favorite dishes.  The best part, it’s all made in one big skillet.  That means less dishes to clean!

For AIP: Use coconut oil or lard as cooking fat.  Skip hot sauce and pepper.
