Wash chicken and pat dry. Cut the chicken breast and kielbasa into 1-inch chunks.
Spray a medium-sized pot with nonstick cooking spray. Brown the chicken and kielbasa over medium heat and remove from the pot.
Add next 6 ingredients to the same pot, and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes.
Return the cooked meat to the pot; add the brown rice, water, bouillon, bay leaf, and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and let simmer for about 50 minutes, or until the water is evaporated (instant brown rice will take less time to cook).
Stir in parsley and serve warm.
