Win a Case of Organic Kosher Chicken Broth

When it turns chilly outside, my go-to favorites are comforting one-pot dishes that are easy to prepare, can sit on the stove cooking without a lot of attention and also fill the house with a delicious aroma. Chicken is one of my favorite choices for winter warmers, whether I’m cooking up a big pot of soup, a yummy jambalaya or chicken and dumplings. Although I occasionally enjoy cooking projects that take hours, I don’t always have the time so I’ve found a few shortcuts. One of the best: using a high-quality chicken broth that not only adds tremendous flavor but also allows me to use pieces (such as chicken breasts) rather than a whole chicken. Read on to learn how you could win a case of organic kosher chicken broth! One of our featured new products introduced this past fall was Pacific Natural Foods Organic Kosher Chicken Broth. I gave it a try and it’s delicious — the perfect starting point for flavorful recipes. It’s made with organic chicken and organic vegetables, including onion, celery and carrots – just like you would make if you had the time. Our grocery experts worked with Pacific Natural to develop this great broth exclusively for our stores – you won’t find it anywhere else. Oh, and it’s gluten-free if that’s a concern for you. Since I’m not Jewish, I wasn’t up to speed on what it means for the broth to be kosher. Pacific Natural Foods says, “Our Organic Kosher Chicken Broth is made from grain-fed chickens, raised without hormones or antibiotics in an environment where they can roam freely, and processed according to strict kosher standards.” That sounds good to me. But what are kosher standards? Well, Jewish dietary laws require foods to meet a number of requirements to be called kosher. One of the more well-known rules (to laymen, that is!) is that meat and dairy cannot be mixed. To be labeled as Kosher, third-party auditors inspect food manufacturing facilities to ensure that these rules are being followed. I also read this article in The New York Times about the growing interest in kosher products not for religious reasons but for flavor and quality. There’s nothing quicker and easier than using ready-to-go chicken broth as a quick soup base to which you can add pre-made tortellini, egg noodles or a variety of canned beans for a fast, flavorful and warming soup. And, of course, there are those one-pot favorites I mentioned before: These recipes will help take the chill out of winter in a delicious way. Ready to get cooking? You could win a whole case of Pacific Natural Foods Organic Kosher Chicken Broth to help warm you up and make dinner easy. Just enter a comment on this post by February 1st letting us know what you’d cook with this great chicken broth and one lucky commenter will be chosen at random to win.

I love chicken broth in my rice and couscous dishes, as well as good home cooked chicken pie! I use it in everything...soup starters, veggies, sometimes plain with a salad for a very lite lunch or dinner.

Sharon Kay Hisaw says …

I like to use a little chicken stock in place of oil to saute vegetables. Have to save the calories where I can and it adds flavor too.

EFFIE STEELE says …

I love using Chicken Broth instead of water in almost every savory dish I cook, i.e., soups, beans, meats, stews, vegetables, grits, rice, pasta, etc. It adds loads of flavor and nutrition. Having a case on hand will help me so much, I cannot possibly explain how much. I fix dinners for others less fortunate often and this would certainly help me with the food costs. Thanks so much.

Marcelle says …

My husband and I love spicy foods, so we'd mix up a pot of the Chicken Sausage Jambalaya with Shrimp.

Ken says …

I would do a nice Chinese style dinner with the broth as a base for many of the dishes. All organically of course.

Christine says …

I love to cook soups. It has been so cold and we are eating lots of different homemade soups, but almost all are made with chicken broth for added flavor.

Connie says …

I make a soup with spinach, chicken, fresh tomatoes, feta cheese and oregano. It is so good! You can also add pasta if you would like but I don't because it saves on the calories.

Pacific's organic kosher chicken broth is the perfect start for so many great dishes. Especially love to use it as the base in wild mushroom soup.

The base for delicious soups - the go-to substitute for water in all kinds of dishes for lots of extra flavor!

I used the organic Kosher chicken stock to make my cornbread stuffing for Thanksgiving and got loads and loads of compliments. The best compliments that take home packages were requested and there were no leftovers!!

Susan C. says …

I love making recipes with chicken broth. Also, it came in handy when I mixed it with my cat's medicine. He drank it right up. I freeze the broth in an ice cube tray and store the cubes in the freezer defrosting them in a glass bowl in the microwave for cooking, etc.

Kathy P says …

I use it when I stir fry to add extra flavor. I also have a pareve scalloped potato recipe and this broth gives it just the right consistency.

Chicken broth id THE biggest staple in our house! I cook from scratch most every day, and I use it in everything from soups and stews to "lightening up" a lemon-butter caper sauce, flavoring rice dishes and even pesto sauce!

Laura says …

I like the idea that Kelly posted (using chicken broth in the rice cooker). Thanks!

Stephanie Cancienne says …

Chicken chili

Leslie says …

So many recipes, so little time. I'd probably make lemon chicken which calls for chicken broth and white wine.

K.G says …

I would make some chicken tortilla soup, which I would very much enjoy. And then from there probably a chicken rice soup sounds good. There are always so many things that I can use the chicken broth for, it is good to have around!

Molly says …

Chicken stock makes rice and pasta so much better! And of course you can't beat the depth of flavor it gives to mostly homemade soups.

Mistie Owens says …

Ohh, how wonderful! I would love to win this case! What I would make is my children's favorite chicken soup: Yemenite chicken stew which is a wonderful broth with carrots, potatoes, onions and other root vegetables, spiced with hawaijj- a Yemenite spice. The children got this recipe from their Israeli grandmother and it reminds them of her...

Lisa says …

I would make a my husbands favorite Lemon Chicken. Chicaken broth is and great addition into many pasta dishes, soups and sauces. You have to have some in house at all times.

Audrone Matutis says …

It's our pantry staple. We use it in place of water where it is completely absorbed in the cooking process (quinoa, buckwheat), and as a base for soups, sauces, and chili. We buy organic chicken broth by the case since we use it so often.

judith karno says …

I use chicken broth for bean/vegetable soup. Then I add TVP, soybeans, or tofu or a ready made soymeat product.The flavor is wonderful,and the soy protein adds more than just protein.

star says …

I would make a ratatouille full of delicious eggplant,zucchini and tomatoes served over rice that also has the chicken stock in it. My husband will probably go wild with risotto, his favorite dish to make with stock/broths.

carol says …

I would make my white chicken chili and I have a great recipe for chicken and dumplings I would use the chicken broth in. YUM!

M. Frazier says …

I use Pacific Natural Foods Organic Kosher Chicken Broth in everything that needs to be cooked with water, instead of the water. Not only does it provide a tastier base for my dishes, but it also makes me feel good about the integrity associtated with my family's meal. I enjoy creating dishes with foods that remain in my fridge...its usually very colorful and very tasty. In my home it's called the "woo-la" dish...and i'll be sharing my lastest chicken/veggi's creation this weekend with other family members at our weekly family dinner. ;-)

Lori says …

I use chicken broth for everything- soups, brown rice, quinoa...My most favorite recently is to poach an egg in it and add a few scallions.

Y. Yi says …

I'd use the chicken broth to make hot noodle soup--with rice noodle or spaghetti on bottom of a bowl, top with chicken strips, spinach, cilantro and green onion. YUMMY! :) My 10 year old just said he would heat it up and drink it because he loves chicken soup. Sure, this would be very easy to cook.

Yvonne says …

Pacific Natural Foods Organic Kosher Chicken Broth would make my Chicken with Yellow Rice recipe be oh so, so yummy!

Brenda says …

I would make pepian. It is made with chicken, chicken broth, cilantro, scallions, corn masa flour, toasted sesame seeds and toasted pumpkin seeds.

Bekah says …

A healthy, organic alternative to the typical chicken broth available would be wonderful. I also love chicken soup in the cold weather. : )

Alison Knopf says …

Mmmmm, I love making hot pumpkin soup with chicken broth,nutmeg, and a touch of real maple syrup. That's totally what I'd make!

Alexandria Kammenzind says …

I plan on making homemade chicken soup and freezing it for a go-to meal when our family is sick.

Denise says …

Gee, what is it I don't use it for. I boil my pasta in it, I cook my rice with it, I use it for gravies, in soups. I even will have just a cup of it when I am not feeling good or just want a wholesome warmup in the winter. Great with a sandwich.

Amanda Wooden says …

I think a good broth makes quinoa more enjoyable & nutritious for my kids. I usually make my own broth but this one sounds like I need to give it a try!! Thanks!

vilte says …

I would make soup! I love cooking soups, especially now in the winter. Hearty soups with a variety of beans, greens, root vegetables and barley. Yum!
