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!
