We call this Full house because it includes, chicken, ham, sausage, okra and shrimp.

Feel free to add or subtract with this recipe. I use what I have available and what the tastes are of the person I am making this for. Some don't care for okra so I leave it out. A friend likes oysters added to his, so I add them when he is coming to eat. Tailor to fit your family and friends.
