  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Place chicken in even layer on rimmed baking sheet. Bake, flipping halfway through, until fully heated through, about 12 to 14 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add flour and cook, stirring constantly until fragrant and dark golden-brown, about 3 minutes. Stir in onion, bell pepper and seasoning, and cook for 1 minute. Whisk in broth and bring to a boil. Stir in okra and sausage, and simmer over medium-low heat until fully cooked, about 4 minutes.
  3. Divide rice between bowls, and top with sausage mixture and cooked chicken. Top with green onions and serve.

Tip: Packaged chopped yellow onions and chopped bell peppers can usually be found in the
produce aisle of your local grocer.

Tip: Substitute kielbasa if andouille sausage is not available!
