Oil in the coolant is usually due to a leaking head gasket. That is pretty academic now that your timing chain has broken as there is a fair chance that one or more valves will have sustained damage. If this is the case the cylinder head will need to be removed, overhauled and reinstalled with a new head gasket fitted. Inspection will also be required to ensure damage has not occured to the pistons, cylinder walls, camshaft or other components due to the broken chain.
