What You Get


Bell pepper 


Chicken thighs (see note below) 

Chicken broth 

Diced tomatoes 

Cooked rice 

Green onions 

What You’ll Need

Salt and freshly ground pepper 

Vegetable oil 

All-purpose flour 

Cayenne pepper (optional) 

Makes 3 servings

Active Time: 30 minutes 

Total Time: 50 minutes  

Step 1

Slice half of the onion, reserving the rest for another use. Seed and slice the bell pepper. Rinse the okra, and trim and slice about 2 cups into rounds, reserving the rest for another use. Pat the okra completely dry with paper towels. Remove the chicken thighs from the packaging, pat dry with paper towels, and season with salt and pepper. 


Step 2

In a sauté pan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, warm 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Add the chicken thighs, skin-side down, and sear until browned, 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside. 

Step 3

Return the pan to the heat. Sprinkle ¼ cup flour and ½ teaspoon cayenne over the fat, if you want a kick, and whisk until browned and toasty, 5 minutes. Add the onion and bell pepper and sauté until softened, 5 minutes longer. Season with ½ teaspoon salt. 

Step 4

Stir in 2 cups of the chicken broth, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the tomatoes and their juices, and the okra, and return the chicken thighs to the pan, nestling them into the mixture. Cover the pan and simmer until the chicken is fork tender, 20 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Step 5

Toward the end of cooking, reheat the rice in the microwave until steamed through and warm, 1 to 2 minutes. Slice a handful of green onions. 

Step 6

Heap the rice into shallow bowls, top with the chicken thighs, and spoon the gumbo over. Sprinkle with the green onions and serve warm. 

Note: The chicken thighs may arrive frozen for freshness. Store them in the refrigerator to defrost before cooking. If you need to defrost them same day, place the sealed package in a bowl of cold water, and leave the tap running in a thin stream for about 30 minutes.
