This tasty and spicy chicken stew with sweet peppers has some West African influences. It is slowly cooked in a sauce of
ripe tomatoes and served with rice and cooked okra. I love chicken
recipes and when I was introduced by a Ghanaian friend to some of the West African ways to prepare chicken it ignited my desire to prepare a stew this way whenever I get a chance. an integral part of this recipe is Okra as well known as okro, ochro, binda, gumbo or ladies fingers. These green seed pods that are unfortunately not regularly available in both Cape Town and Radevormwald my South African and German home towns and are quite difficult to grow there as well. I tried several times but didn't get more than 2 to 3 fruit pods for all my efforts. So on the rare occasions that okra is available at the spice shops or vegetable market I always buy some and use add them to a delicious chicken dish.
