This was so good! I didn't have chicken base so I used chicken granuels, and it turned out great!

This tomatoes and okra recipe was on-target. I added a tsp. of chicken bouillon granules(I assumed that was the "chicken base" of the recipe), and used fresh tomatoes. It's still good as a left over too! Thanks.
