Easter dinner in my house is always a big affair. We have all the goodies; ham, mashed potatoes, chicken & noodles, green bean casserole, etc. Swanson broth is always a big part of our dinners!
We believe in inspiring creativity through cooking. To this end, we’ve built a line of broths and stocks that serve as a perfect backbone to your culinary canvas. Whether you choose the fully finished flavors of Swanson® broths, or opt for more control with our less seasoned line of stocks, with Swanson®, you can be sure that no matter why you cook, what you cook will be delicious.
What it’s great for..
Everything! Seriously, though, Swanson broth can be used for so many things. I use it in my mashed potatoes, stuffing, chicken & noodles, etc. The possibilities are endless, honestly. I’ve used the vegetable broth in my veggie soup, and it adds this amazing flavor that you don’t get with tomato or vegetable juice. One of my favorite things to make with broth is stuffing. I get the boxed mixes, and in place of the water that it says to use, I use a broth of choice. It gives it a more intense flavor, and makes it taste more like homemade 🙂
I’m also a noodle lover! I adore making chicken and noodles, and I make it quite often. It’s one dish that my whole family loves. I boil my chicken down, and shred it, and once you do, you have a whole pot of water left that you had boiled the chicken in. I usually dump out 1/2 to 2/3 of it, and I add in chicken broth to cook my noodles in. The end results are amazingly delicious noodles! Pair this with mashed potatoes (also made with broth instead of milk!) and some homemade bread, and you have a great meal!

So, overall, I was very pleased with the flavor of these broths and stocks. I love that the tops are resealable, so I can just twist on the cap and store in the refrigerator. For me, this saves on waste, and allows me to grab them whenever I need! You can find these broths at most grocery stores, including WalMart.
