I would substitute brown rice for white rice which I think is more healthy, especially for those who are on restricted diets.

My only suggestion with this recipe would be to add your okra last.  The reason is when the okra is added early and as it simmers it tends to make the gumbo slimy.   Some do not like slimy gumbo.

The liquid from stewing chicken is what gives this gumbo it's deep flavor.  I don't stewing chickens are still available for purchase. Any large chicken will do.

If you don't like a slimy consistency to your gumbo I would not add the okra in the beginning I would added it near the end, and then it does not produce a slimy consistency.

Besides this being a great recipe it is also the title of a book about the settling of Louisiana.  The book is not only enjoyable but also very informative.
