I love to make Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup during the winter months (and on rainy days). When I do make it, I use Swanson Chicken Broth. I’ve used the store brands before, but I find that there is so much more flavor in the Swanson brand!
I had the opportunity to review some Swanson broths recently. I received both the Swanson Chicken Broth and the Chicken Stock. They are great to use in soups, rice, and other recipes! This broth has 1/3 less sodium than regular Swanson Chicken Broth and is 100% fat free! Recently, Good Housekeeping Magazine ranked Swanson Natural Goodness Chicken Broth number one in a taste test of 15 reduced sodium stocks and broths.

The experts at Campbell’s Kitchen have highlighted the great taste of Swanson Natural Goodness Chicken Broth in some great recipes. Here are a few yummy recipes to try!

Vegetable Stir-Fry

1 can (14 oz) Swanson Natural Goodness Chicken Broth
2 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
5 cups cut-up fresh vegetables (broccoli flowerets, cauliflowerets, baby carrots, and sliced celery)
2 tsp. grated fresh ginger root or 1/8 tsp. ground ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
Toasted sesame seeds (optional)

1. Stir broth, cornstarch, and soy sauce in small bowl until mixture is smooth.
2. Heat oil in 10″ skillet over medium-high heat. Add vegetables, ginger, and garlic and stir-fry until vegetables are tender-crisp.
