  • 4 bone-in chicken thighs with skin

  • 6 cups water

  • 1 cube chicken bouillon

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • ½ cup chopped red bell pepper

  • ½ cup chopped orange bell pepper

  • 1 (16 ounce) package turkey kielbasa, cubed

  • 2 cups uncooked white rice

  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning

  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt

  • 2 cubes chicken bouillon

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup


  1. Place the chicken thighs, water, and 1 bouillon cube into a large saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook the chicken thighs until very tender, about 1 hour. Remove the chicken thighs from the pan, and skim fat from the stock; there should be about 4 1/2 cups of liquid. Separate the chicken meat from bones and skin, and chop the meat. Discard the bones and skin.

  2. Return the chicken meat to the stock. Mix in onion, red and orange bell pepper, turkey kielbasa, rice, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, garlic salt, and 2 more chicken bouillon cubes. Bring the mixture to a simmer, cover the pot, and simmer on low heat until the rice is cooked through and tender, about 20 minutes. Stir after 10 minutes and again after 15 minutes. Remove from heat, and mix in the cream of mushroom soup until thoroughly combined. Serve hot.

Editor's Note:

The nutrition data for this recipe includes the chicken bones and skin. The actual amount of nutrition from bones and skin contained in the broth will vary.

Cook's Note

For some extra heat, we usually add some cayenne pepper to the mix before cooking. Also, the recipe can easily be cut in half for a smaller yield, but you're probably going to want the leftovers!
