Clean and dry pot, return to stove over medium heat. To make a roux, add oil and flour, stirring until lightly browned. Add chopped vegetables, except for okra, and stir to coat. Slowly add reserved chicken stock until all flour is dissolved. Add remainder of stock. You can add browning liquid and/or chicken bouillion if desired.
Add chicken, okra, and sausage to pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about an hour.
