I love tomatoes fresh from our garden. They’re only available for a few weeks during the summer. I can them several ways so that I can continue to enjoy them all year long. I like creating recipes that help me enjoy the flavor of the tomatoes. This Chunky Chicken, Tomato, and Basil Soup combines pan-seared chicken thighs, Swanson Chicken Broth, canned tomatoes, and basil straight from the garden. It is hearty enough to satisfy, and pairs perfectly with a mozzarella grilled cheese sandwich. Enjoy giveaways?

I recommend doubling the recipe if you plan on feeding a large crowd. This recipe feeds a family of 4 with leftovers. When you pair it with the mozzarella grilled cheese, the flavors will remind you of caprese. I can get this on the table in under 30 minutes, which is a priority for a busy family.

The Swanson Chicken Broth makes this soup a lot quicker to prepare. It takes me roughly 30 minutes to get it on the table. The chicken makes this soup hearty, and it complements the flavors of tomato and basil.

 Swanson Chicken Broth is now available in a 6-pack of cartons at Sam’s Club. These containers make it easier to use what you need, and store the rest in the refrigerator. They’re so much more convenient than canned broth.
