This is by far our favorite recipe. This moist rice, chicken and kielbasa meal is the perfect comfort food for those cold winter nights, or that rainy summer day. If you’ve never had chicken bog before, you’re missing out. I guarantee you’ll love this one-pot meal that’s easy to clean up.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 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

Cooking Directions

  1. 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. 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.

Chef's Notes

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; 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!


  1. I love this dish! I substituted green pepper as I only had greena and red. I also used cut thick chicken breast into to chunks and added some butter to subtitute for the fat that the chicken thighs would have given the dish. I used a little Adobo seasoning and used two instead of three - Read more ...
  2. don't put the vegtables in till later mine were mush and it's just kinda salty dish w/ a pop of sausage
  3. Loved it! Making it for my large crew to nibble on all weekend I doubled the batch. We left out the red pepper flakes since some of us don't care for much spice/heat. Husband says he'd like a little more kick so he's adding a dash of hot sauce to his individual serving. We'll definitely - Read more ...

  5. Great love of your recipe from SC! 8x bone-in chicken thighs 4x cups chicken broth and the rest water (I did by eye really) 1x onion (i freaking' minced instead of diced it) 2x chicken bullion cubes 1x turkey butterball sausage 14oz (big pack) 2x family size rice-aroni (whatever flavor I got chicken flavor) 2x - Read more ...
  6. Super easy and good! Followed recipe except with two minor changes: -Pressure cooked the thighs instead of boiled to cut down on time- pressure cooked for 8 minutes so the recipe was a fairly quick one. Poured in just 2 cups of water and 1 boullion. Added chicken stock from a carton to adjust stock - Read more ...
  7. My husband loved this dish and rated it a 10!! It was a little on the hot side for me but this dish really does need some heat. I couldn't find turkey kielbasa so I used smoked turkey sausage (looked like kielbasa) instead. Otherwise followed exact recipe. I will make again if my husband requests - Read more ...
  8. Loved this rest of the family could have lived without the kielbasa. Not too difficult but does take a little time.
  9. This was excellent! My entire family loved! I goofed and bought boneless thighs. I used 5 boneless thighs and instead of boiling in water I used 4 cups of chicken broth and 2 water. It came out great! One of those meals that warms you up on a cold night! Thank for the recipe!
  10. This recipe was SOOO delicious. I made it on a snowy day and it took a while to do but it was worth it. Everything mixed together nicely and the tastes complimented each other. Very very good. we had leftovers for about 4 days. I HIGHLY recommend this dish if you have some time.
