Sausage 'n' Chicken Skillet Recipe

Says Joanna Iovino of Commack, New York: “Chicken and rice was a staple at my parents' house, but the chicken never turned out quite right. I enjoy this recipe much more now that I use tasty skinless chicken and kielbasa.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 40 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/4 pound smoked turkey kielbasa, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small green pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1/2 teaspoon reduced-sodium chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce


  • 1. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon thyme and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, saute chicken in oil until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm.
  • 2. In the same skillet, saute the kielbasa, onion and green pepper until vegetables are tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the water, rice, bouillon, hot pepper sauce, and remaining thyme and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 18-20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.

"We really like this simple recipe. I always add a bit more kielbasa sausage than the recipe calls for, but, follow the recipe otherwise. Good, simple food."
