Preparation / Directions:
Wash the chickens. (If they are whole, cut into serving pieces). Season lightly with salt and pepper, and set them aside to drain. Wash the okra. Remove the stems carefully, without cutting the okra. Line them up in a large flat pan and sprinkle with the vinegar; place in the sun for 30 min to 1 hour.
Brown the butter in a pot, add the chicken, and sauté until brown, then add the onion and let it brown. Add the tomatoes and boil for 3 to 5 minutes Add water. Simmer for 30 minutes Add okra and continue to simmer, covered, until tender. Watch carefully as this may need a little more water. The okra will have absorbed the liquid and only the oil should remain when the dish is cooked.
