  • 8 ounces smoked sausage, sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 (10 ounce) can chunk chicken breast, drained and flaked

  • 1 (16 ounce) can chicken broth

DIRECTIONS
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Boil sausage until hot, 8 to 12 minutes; drain.
  2. Heat canola oil in a pot over medium-high heat; saute sausage, celery, bell pepper, and onion in hot oil until vegetables start to soften, about 5 minutes.

Return mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, cover pot, and simmer mixture until for 5 minutes.
