Chicken with Okra - Kottopoula me bamies
2 about 3/4 kilo each (1lb 10oz.) Chicken
1 1/4 kilos (2lbs.12oz.) Okra
3/4 cup Butter
1 medium Onion
3/4 kilo (1lb.10oz.) Tomatoes

Wash the okra in a pot of water. Clean them by cutting off the stem ends, taking care not to cut into the flesh of the okra. After cleaning them, place in layers in a baking dish, sprinkle them with fine salt and vinegar. Clean and wash the chickens, Cut them in pieces, salt and pepper and drain completely. Chop the onion. Put butter in the pot to brown. Saute well the chicken pieces, a few at a time, then the onion, in the hot butter. Put all the chicken pieces in a pot and add strained tomatoes. Once they have begun to cook, add two cups of water and let simmer for about half an hour. Add the okra, cover the pot and let cook until no liquid remains, only the butter. During the cooking the only concern is that the pot doesn't go dry, therefore, if necessary, add water from time to time.

Note: If desired, you can fry the okra first. In this case, let the meal cook for only three quarters to one hour, until only the sauce remains, no liquid since the fried okra cooks faster and doesn't require so much water.


I would like to receive updates and special offers from GreekCuisine and affiliates.
