  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium red or green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups shredded chicken from Wine & Tomato Braised Chicken, (recipe follows)
  • 2 cups sauce from Wine & Tomato Braised Chicken

Recipe Directions:

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add bell pepper and flour and cook, stirring, until the pepper is beginning to soften and the flour is golden brown, about 2 minutes. Add chicken, sauce, broth, okra, rice and cayenne. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the flavors meld and the okra is tender, about 10 minutes.
