Preheat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, tossing occasionally until browned, about 5 - 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain, leave oil in pan.
Add onion, bell pepper, and celery to pot. Saute 6 minutes. Add garlic and saute 1 minute longer.
Pour in chicken broth, crushed tomatoes, paprika, thyme, oregano, cayenne pepper and season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in cooked sausage and rice.
Bring mixture to a light boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low heat, cover and simmer until rice is almost fully tender, about 20 - 25 minutes. Stir in a little extra broth as needed.
Stir in shrimp and okra, cover and continue to cook until shrimp have cooked through, about 4 - 5 minutes.
Stir in chicken, green onions and parsley. Serve immediately garnishing each serving with more parsley if desired.
**This is a spicy dish both from the cayenne pepper and the sausage. If you don't like spicy food you can omit the cayenne pepper and use a different type of smoked sausage.
**For more heat you can also add a chopped jalapeno in when sautéing peppers or add a can of hot diced green chilis in when adding crushed tomatoes.
For another layer of flavor you can also add in cumin or chili powder to taste, or serve with lemon wedges for spritzing.
