2 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
2 cups chopped onion
1 teaspoon dried thyme
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 (15.75-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth

1 pound turkey kielbasa, thinly sliced

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, thyme, and garlic; sauté 5 minutes. Stir in broth, scraping pan to loosen browned bits.
