    Can I freeze jambalaya

    I finally got around to making Dewey's crockpot Jambalaya and it's delicious. However, dh is out of town this week, so it's just me eating alone and this recipe made a huge amount for 1 person!!!!
    Does anyone know if it will freeze well?


    Jambalaya (source:Rival Crock-Pot Instruction booklet)

    12 oz boneless, skinless chicken breats
    2 green peppers, chopped
    1 medium onion, chopped
    2 stalks celery, sliced
    4 cloves garlic, minced (I always use more)
    1 14-1/2 oz can whole tomatoes
    1/3 cup tomato paste
    1 can beef broth
    1 Tbl dried parsley
    1 1/2 tsp dired basil
    1/2 tsp dried oregano
    1 tsp Tabasco sauce
    1 tsp cayenne pepper
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 lb. shelled shrimp
    3 cups cooked rice

    Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces. Add all ingredients except shimp and rice to Crock-Pot. Cover; cook on Low 8 to 10 hours (High: 3 to 4 hours). Add shrimp last 15 to 30 minutes of cooking. Stir in rice when ready to serve. 6 servings (big servings!)

    I think you can, but then I freeze anything. But be sure to let it come to room temp when you defrost, that way the shrimp won't get too mooshy when you reheat it. Oh and reheat on low. Sounds good!
