Recursive algebraic construction of two infinite families of polynomials in variables is proposed as a uniform method applicable to every semisimple Lie group of rank . Its result recognizes Chebyshev polynomials of the first and second kind as the special case of the simple group of type . The obtained not Laurent-type polynomials are equivalent to the partial cases of the Macdonald symmetric polynomials. Recurrence relations are shown for the Lie groups of types , , , , , , and together with lowest polynomials.
