  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Kielbasa sliced diagonally
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 smell bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cloves garclic, minced
  • 1 cup white rice
  • 2 cups chicken stock or broth
  • 2 cups broccoli florets, bite sized pieces
  • 2 cups shredded cheese, divided


Heat olive oil in a skillet on medium-high heat. Add in the kielbasa and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side.

Remove the kielbasa from the skillet with a slotted spoon so the liquid remains behind. Add in the onion and bell pepper, sauteing until the onion is translucent.

Add the rice and stir for about 1-2 minutes.

Pour in the chicken broth and bring it to a boil. Reduce the temperature to low and cover it. Cook for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes, add in the broccoli but don't stir it in. Let it cook for 5-7 minutes.  

Stir in the kielbasa and 1 cup of shredded cheese.

Add the rest of the cheese on top, covering for another 2-3 minutes so the cheese melts.

Scoop and serve and enjoy the hearty and cheesy flavors!
