Amy's Comments: Yum! This was quick and tasty. Good flavor and I will make it again for sure. Next time I make it I will skip the rice. Not worth the 2 points. I know that ruins the whole concept of gumbo, but its unnecessary.


1 (3 1/2-ounce) bag boil-in-bag rice
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup frozen chopped onion
1 cup frozen chopped green bell pepper
1 cup frozen cut okra
1 cup chopped celery
1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
2 cups chopped roasted skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 2 breasts)
8 ounces turkey kielbasa, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes with peppers and onion
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth


  1. Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.
  2. While rice cooks, combine flour and oil in a Dutch oven; saute over medium-high heat 3 minutes. Add onion and next 6 ingredients (onion through red pepper); cook 3 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently.
  3. Stir in chicken, kielbasa, tomatoes, and broth; cook 6 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve over rice.
