We've made this twice now and it is truly excellent. We use kielbasa and cubed chicken breasts. I also add a couple of dashes of liquid smoke to each batch. The teens in the home absolutely love it. The whole is much greater than the sum of it's parts.

I've just cooked this recipe today and it was very good. I've doubled all the ingredients, so it will last all week. Probably will fix this again. Thanks!
