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'd use it in place of water for couscous, add flavor to mashed potatoes, or just make a lot of soup and freeze for quick lunches!

Susan Barnes says …

Chicken broth has always been a must in my pantry. I substitute it for water in many things from cooking grits, greens,vegtables, soups,sauces, plus many more. If you are on a diet this is a great way to add taste and elimate calories from oils and butter products.

Shari Watson says …

I am vegetarian, but I use this broth daily to feed my senior dog. He has trouble with his appetite and a few tablespoons of the Pacific broth--usually chicken--persuades him to eat. He is having a leg amputated next week and I dread trying to coax him into eating after the surgery, but I'll be pulling out the broth and dousing his food to encourage him to get on his remaining feet!

Mara says …

I would make a Turkey Tator Tot Casserole with this Chicken Broth.

Kelly Mullaly says …

I love to use chicken broth in my rice cooker to add an extra level of flavor to my rice or quinoa.

Suz Warren says …

Soup, wonderful soup! That's what I would make. A chicken soup with ginger (I love ginger!). My favorite in the whole world - carrot soup. Or then I could make acorn squash soup. Soup's on!

Alison says …

I would cook all good yummy soups to keep me nice and warm during these freezing cold days. But my husband and I use so much broth with other things as well -- cous cous, when baking a whole roasted chicken, boiling rice. It adds more flavor than just plain water.

Diane says …

Pacific Natural Foods Organic Kosher Chicken Broth would add a depth of flavor to my Puerto Rican Pollo en Fricase (Chicken Fricassee). Hmmm...think I'll make some this week.

I love using organic chicken broth in soup - I did it last night and it was delicious! Thank you for the giveaway!

White chicken chili, and probably some chorizo and chickpea soup.

Melonie says …

I love to make a slightly more environmentally friendly version of French Onion Soup using chicken or veggie broth instead of beef broth. However it would also be great to make polenta with, replacing some or all of the water with yummy chicken flavor!

Chicken broth can be used as a substitute cup for cup for water in any casserole, veggie, rice, dressing, and soup dish/recipe. If you haven't tried it, I suggest you do.

Mediterranean inspired chicken stew or a risotto with veggies topped with grilled portobellos.

The possibilities are endless - All sorts of soups, rice, casseroles, stuffing to name a few.

Sheri T says …

My favorite use is to make a quick chicken vegetable soup using chicken broth simmered with any left over portions of frozen veggies I have in my freezer, along with chicken and a secret blend of spices. Warms up any cold winter day!

Cheryl Forbes says …

I make soups. I love to add dumplings, chicken, pumpkin, white sweet potato, celery, carrots, thyme and pimento seeds. It makes a savory soup that is almost like a stew. When I make it for friends they get hooked.

I make tortilla soup with a chicken broth base. I cook chicken in the broth, and when it is cooked I add tomatos, beans, brown rice, and taco seasoning. Delicious!

Sally O says …

Soup with beans and greens! I rarely cook with meat, so chicken broth would help add some of the missing flavor.

Steve Isonio says …

I use chicken broth in many recipes. One of my favorites is as a base for split pea soup.

chicken soup with...any veggie, every veggie, lotsa veggies -- whatever's to hand. with whatever grain's to hand. or just broth with condiments. or just broth.

Allison says …

Well nothing beats my mother's organic chicken stock (using local chickens) BUT, when I run out or don't have time, I'd use this for my toddler's favorite lunch -- a simple blended soup of chicken broth and organic broccoli, with a hint of sea salt, turmeric and whole cumin seed. Add nutritional yeast if desired :-)

Amber says …

I would use it to make my favorite casserole that my mother always made when I was younger and soup of course :-)

I know it's probably the most obvious choice out there, but nothing beats a pig pot of homemade chicken noodle soup! It is the absolute favorite in this house, hands down. :)
