Recipe – Rice, Broccoli, Kielbasa Skillet

When my husband isn’t home for the night, my girls and I will typically try a new recipe that he wouldn’t normally like. This recipe is one of them. I love all the flavors in this dish, and it’s one that could be adjusted for your preferences. Enjoy!

  • Ingredients:
    • ½ tablespoon olive oil
    • 14 ounces Polska Kielbasa sliced on a diagonal
    • 1 small onion diced
    • 1 small bell pepper diced
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ½ teaspoon pepper
    • 2 cloves garlic minced
    • 1 cup white rice uncooked
    • 2 cups chicken stock or broth
    • 2 cups broccoli florets – bite size pieces raw
    • 2 cups shredded cheese divided ) I used a cheddar blend)
  • Directions:
    • Heat olive oil over medium high heat in a large, lidded skillet.
    • Brown kielbasa in the skillet, 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove with a slotted spoon.
    • Saute onion and bell pepper until onion is translucent. Make sure to work the brown bits off the bottom of the skillet
    • Add garlic and cook for an additional minute. Season with salt and pepper.
    • Add rice to the skillet and stir to combine. Continue stirring for 1 to 2 more minutes.
    • Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 15 minutes.
    • Without disturbing the rice, add the broccoli to the top of the rice and cover again. Cook an additional 5 to 7 minutes or until rice is tender.
    • Stir in kielbasa and 1 cup of cheese.
    • Top with remaining cup of cheese. Cover with lid and let sit for 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
