 Nigerian)    2      cups          Cooked rice
 In a large pot or Dutch oven place chicken, water, onion, celer, salt and 
 crushed pepper.  Cover and cook over miderately high heat until comes to a 
 boil, reduce heat to moderately low and simmer 30 minutes. While chicken 
 is cooking, place tomatoes in a pan of boiling water for 1/2 min. Spoon 
 tomaotes out of the water and remove skin. Cut into eighths. Add tomatoes, 
 green pepper, lemon juice, tomato paste, and chili powder to chicken. 
 Continue cooking for 10 minutes. Add okra to pot, cover and cook another 
 15 minutes. Stirring once or twice. Spoon rice into soup bowls and top 
 with chicken mixture.
  When making cassaroles, I do not put the rice in with everything else if 
 I am going to be freezing or storing. White rice can be frozen in the 
 cassarole but I find that if I use brown rice, it gives everything a 
 distinctly grainy flavor that I find disagreeable. So I will put the rice 
 in a plastic ziploc bag and freeze it with the cassarole. Then I will heat 
 it separately.
