BzzCampaign: Carton Smart

Yay! My first Bzz Campaign came in the mail and it was full of pantry items that usually come in a can but have been produced in a box instead. I was given Tomato Basil and Chicken Noodle soups, turkey gravy, tomato sauce and (my personal favorite) Thai Style Chicken broth!

I was most excited that the chicken broth came with a recipe on the back of the box, and that it sounded delicious! I wasn't disappointed - chicken, shrimp, noodles, red peppers, cabbage, onions, carrots... it was so good! I would definitely buy this broth again - it was full of flavor and smelled amazing. The only negative thing was that I had to add another box of regular chicken stock just to give the soup enough juice to cook the noodles. A second box of the thai chicken broth would have really given a huge boost of flavor, but it was still really good. Thanks to Bzz Agent for letting me try this campaign!

Here's the recipe:
32 oz Chicken Soup for the Soup Thai Style Chicken Broth
1 T oil
1 lb chicken cut into 1 inch pieces
8 oz peeled and deveined shrimp, split
1 t salt
1 medium onion, sliced
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 red bell pepper, cut into matchsticks
1 cup sliced carrots
3 cups Nappa or white cabbage cut 1/2 inch thick
3 oz vermicelli pasta or rice noodles

Heat oil in 4 quart pot over high heat. Add chicken and shrimp and saute lightly for 2 minutes. Add onions, garlic, red pepper, carrots, cabbage, salt and broth. Mix all ingredients. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer covered on the stove over low heat for 10 minute. Add pasta and mix. Simmer for 5 minutes longer and serve. Enjoy!
