Ingredients

    1 14 oz package Jennie-O lean Turkey Kielbasa, cut into bite sized pieces
    16 oz cubed ham
    1 16 oz package frozen cut okra
    1 can 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
    1 medium white onion, chopped
    3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
    Creole seasoning
    2 tbsp. olive oil
    6 cups cooked white rice
    12 Gladware containers

Directions

In a dutch oven or heavy pot over medium heat, pour olive oil to coat bottom. Season chicken breasts liberally with creole seasoning. Brown chicken breasts on both sides, cooking chicken through. When you're done, there will be browned seasoning (it might look burnt) at the bottom of the pot. This is good! Use chicken broth to deglaze the pot and scrape up bits to make a dark brown broth. Add crushed tomatoes, ham, kielbasa, okra, and onion. Let chicken cool slightly, then chop into small pieces and add to pot. Let all ingredients simmer about 15 minutes, then add more creole seasoning to taste.

Scoop 1/2 cup white rice (I use an ice cream scoop) into each container. Ladle equal portions of the jambalaya (about 10 oz) into each. Freeze.

To Reheat: Microwave on high for three minutes. Check to see if fully heated through. If not, heat for additional time in one minute increments.
