  2. To pan, add oil; whisk in flour, and cook, stirring frequently, for 30 to 40 minutes until mixture is chocolate colored. Stir in onion, celery, bell pepper, and garlic, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 12 to 15 minutes or just until vegetables are tender. Gradually stir in broth. Add okra, next 5 ingredients, and chicken and sausage. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 2½ to 3 hours. Discard bay leaves. Serve over rice, and garnish with green onion, if desired.
