2 tbsp coconut oil
8 skinless chicken thighs
1  chopped onion 
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

4 sprigs of fresh thyme

1 cup long grain rice
1 spring onion chopped
1 seeded chopped tomato
Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook chicken for three minutes until browned. Remove from the heat and transfer to a plate. In the same pan add the onion, stirring for three minutes until softened. Add garlic, cayenne pepper and season. Return the chicken to the pan. Add a tin of boiling water, crumble in the stock cubes, add the thyme and chopped tomatoes. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 1 hour or until chicken pieces are tender. Then turn up the heat to medium. Stir in okra and rice; you may need to add some more water. Simmer and stir occasionally, for 15 minutes until okra and rice is cooked.
