15-Minute Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya made with whole grain oatmeal.


  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 13 oz package turkey (or chicken) smoked sausage
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium red (or green) bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped, cooked chicken (I used this recipe from @HealthyAperature for slow cooker Roasted Chicken)
  • 2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 3 cups low-sodium, fat-free chicken broth
  • 8 ounce can tomato sauce


  1. Heat oil in large soup pot or dutch oven; add sausage, onion, bell pepper and cook undisturbed until a few pieces of sausage turn golden. Then stir occasionally until onion are translucent, about 6-7 minutes.
  2. Stir in garlic and cook for 1 minute; then add chicken, oats, bay leaf, thyme, oregano, paprika, salt & pepper and cook another minute.
  3. Stir in broth and tomato sauce. Cook 7-8 minutes until oats are tender.
