  • 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)


  • 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 - more flavor :)
  • 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.
