  • Servings: 8



  1. Lightly coat 3½- to 4-quart slow cooker liner with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Add tomatoes, okra, bell peppers, onions, celery, broth, Worcestershire sauce, thyme and bay leaf.
  3. Cover; cook on low 9 hours or on high 4½ hours.
  4. Heat oil in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium high heat.
  5. Add chicken; cook,stirring frequently, 6 minutes or until lightly browned.
  6. Add chicken to slow cooker, along with remaining ingredients except parsley.
  7. Increase slow cooker temperature to high.
  8. Cook 15 minutes.
  9. Stir in parsley.


  • The okra does not need to be thawed.
  • To help ensure even cooking, I like to have the slow-cooker liner at least half full, but not more than two-thirds full.
  • I add seared chicken last so it doesn't overcook. Searing the chicken in olive oil first adds flavor.
  • I also add a little sweetener to the slow cooker to counteract acids in the tomatoes.
