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 use organic chicken broth as a starter for soup bases like French Onion soup and deeper and more the flavorful chicken stock for the countless meals it expands. I often make New Mexico green chili style sauce. Made in large batches and frozen by the quart it is perfect for green chili stew, green chili chicken enchiladas and handmade green chili tamales. Warms the tummy right away!

Finally!!! Lo-salt broth. It is so much easier to make soup with this and much quicker as well. Terrific shopping here. No more hours of cooking to make broth for different recipes. Your recipes are greater than any cook book I have seen What a store!

My husband and I make a chicken soup for our grandsons which we named Papa Soup. Chicken broth, egg noodles, celery, garlic and ribbons of carrots, which turns the soup into a bright yellow color and gives it a natural sweetness. Every time my grandson who is 5 yrs old eats it he says " Nana, this makes my tummy feel so warm". I love hearing that. He eats two or three bowls of it. Delicious!!!

Teri says …

I cook so many things with chicken broth it's insane! One of my favorites is my Chicken Linguini.

Heidi says …

I'd cook pasta rags tossed with chicken, white beans, mushrooms and kale.... White chili.... and Chicken couscous

Nicole says …

I use chicken broth to give brown rice some extra flavor for the picky eater in my household. And even though Ramen noodles are the most nutritionally sound food, I always use chicken broth (plus Chinese 5 spice powder) instead of that scary seasoning packet.

Melody Ortiz says …

I would be making yummy soup!

Liz says …

White bean soup!

Kristin says …

I'd love to try the chicken and wild rice soup as well as experiment with my own variations on it.

Risotto alla Milanese, won ton soup, ratatouille, split pea soup, stuffed peppers . . . the list goes on!

I would make a warm and spicy kimchi soup poured over steamed rice.

Geoff says …

The classic... Chicken noodle soup.

Brandi says …

I use a lot of chicken broth this time of year, particularly in my chicken noodle soup, which calls for 13 cups of it, and is sooooo yummy and warming on the days where the thermometer dips well below freezing.

Trisha says …

Definitely a yummy soup, already using some in my Lentil and Chicken Soup that I'm making this week!

Susie Bee on Maui (Eat Little, Eat Big) says …

I'd make Chicken and white bean chili; would be perfect made using the organic chicken broth.

rose says …

I use Kosher chicken broth often to make soups and stews, and they are always tasty! Many times I use broth as a liquid for pasta or rice, or legumes. It adds more flavor without all the work!

Gita says …

I add chicken broth to flavor rice dishes, and numerous other recepies.

Kathy says …

I would make chicken tortilla soup! and a garlic chicken soup! and brown rice and veggie chicken soup! and you get the idea :)

Lisa Gregg says …

I use chicken broth in everything from mashed potatoes and rice to soups. It can be substituted in any dish that calls water and it adds great flavor. One of my favorite dishes is chicken pot pie.

michael quinn says …

I have used this broth as a base for a innovative soup that included, canelli beans. It began with a saute of veggies...zucchini, green beans, carrots, lots of garlic (6 cloves), chopped kale, chopped shallot, chopped leeks, celery with leaves, orzo, flat parsley, oregano (left-over chicken) and parmesan cheese to serve. It was easy and simple, and the credit goes to the broth starter.

Gavra says …

What wouldn't I cook with this chicken broth?? Chicken broth is a staple in my house and I use it in just about anything. White bean chili, quinoa pilaf, and chicken and wild rice soup to name a few.

Lisa Roberts says …

Since I am a Florida Cracker #1 on my list is Chicken and Dumplings. Then I would have to try it for Chicken and Yellow Rice with Black Beans, then on to my oven version with Chicken, lots of veggies and topped with Cornbread batter and baked.....Oh the many ways I could use this.....;p

Mandy G. says …

I will make some white chicken chili with this yummy broth. Hope to win!

Karen Krugman says …

In our attempts to eat a more healthy diet we've switched to eating chicken, turkey, fish or meatless many nights a week and eating beef only once a week. So we use lots of chicken broth in sauces & soups. Buying organic has also become a real focus for us. Switching to a healthier diet means living longer to enjoy our three grandsons! Enjoyed the article! K

Alison says …

With a case, I could make so many things. Soup mostly comes to mind, but adding broth to mashed potatoes also adds flavor. With all of this cold weather, I'd use it to cook comfort food!

Patrick says …

I'd love a whole case so I can re-do my first attempt at making risotto! It may take a whole case to finally perfect it.

Emily says …

I love to use it for Lemon Chicken Orzo soup. Mmmmm

Megan McKemey says …

I absolutely love to make soup on a cold day like we've been having for the past couple of weeks. One of my family's favorite soups is french onion. I can't spill on the whole recipe as it is a family one that was passed down to me, but I will tell some... Instead of using the traditional beef broth, I swap in chicken broth for a lighter flavor. Also, upon completing the soup on top of the stove, it is an absolute must that it is served with toasted bread in the bottom of the soup bowl and a slice of Swiss cheese broiled on top. Mmmmmmm!!!!!! That hits the spot!

judy marcus says …

I use kosher chicken broth when i make soups I will serve with a meat meal or when i make matzo ball soup. A favorite soup recipe a friend gave me is for carrot soup-5 lbs. carrots added to sauteed onion and sauteed ginger and then broth and liquify in blender after fully cooked.

Rachael Bleymaier says …

I would cook casseroles, rice dishes, and my famous lentil soup and other soups with the broth. My family uses broth often!

Cyndi says …

Hmmm... let's see, corn chowder, or lentil soup, in rice, we use chicken broth all the time around here.

Lois Sauer says …

I would use this chicken broth in a number of recipes, as I'm doing Weight Watchers and the broth is used in quite a few of them. My health is very important and this program is working for me very nicely. Once I've reached my goal weight, I will continue on this program and, of course, continue to use this Chicken Broth. I'm retired and on a fixed monthly, and a case would last a long time and help me save money to be used on other health related items. Lois

Marie says …

I've been experimenting with soups lately (Chicken Almond Buter soup, broccoli soup), so broth would be well used! I've also recently found a really good quinoa salad recipe and while it calls for water, I think the chicken broth adds much more flavor.

Vera says …

Chicken broth is versatile for oh so many dishes--chicken and dumplings from the crock pot, couscous, chow mein. A case of organic, kosher broth would inspire experimenting with some new recipes!

Kat says …

I love chicken broth. For a very quick meal, to chicken broth I add fresh baby spinach, chicken or tofu and some leftovers. And if I win a case of it I'll share some with my mother and friends. Great way to earn points... :)

Margot S says …

I love this broth - my family uses it all year long, In the winter to make chicken soup to warm up, at Passover for Matzoh ball soup (YUMMY!), for risotto, and it helps to make awsome mashed potatoes. This is always in my pantry and we can always use more.

John says …

I like to make a wintery warm squash soup and add a dash of garam Marsala, curry, and a granny smith apple !

Jeannie says …

I do keep kosher and am so happy that you now are stocking Kosher chicken broth. If I don't have time to make homemade it is a great starting point to make "wedding soup".

Suz (White) says …

Comfort foods, hearty soups,and one dish wonders almost always start with a good base of vegetable or chicken broth. In these frigid temperatures in upstate NY (the Catskills-the borscht belt!), I could USE a case of organic broth. And kosher, too? Bring it on!!! Thanks for the opportunity.

Jeffrey Reynolds says …

I use this chicken broth for stir frys. Makes perfect sauces for the vegies when not combined in the dish. Also chicken and potatos gravied. My daughter also likes me to heat and add a beat egg to make a form of egg drop soup. Then everybodys favorite soups.

Jacyntha Billingsley says …

I would use the Kosher Chicken Broth to make a very nice Chicken Matzo Ball Soup.

Sandy says …
