4 servings


  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil

  • 4 (4 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with garlic and onion, undrained

  • cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen cut okra, thawed

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 1 ½ tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • ¼ teaspoon hot pepper sauce

  • 2 cups cooked long-grain white rice


  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Add tomatoes, chicken broth, garlic, salt, and cayenne. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 8 minutes. Add okra, cover, and simmer for 3 minutes more.

  2. Combine water and flour in a small bowl and add to the skillet. Simmer, uncovered, until thick and chicken is no longer pink in the centers, about 2 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Stir in hot sauce. Serve over rice.
