Thanksgiving is just over a week away, and food is at the heart of this holiday celebration.

Using chicken broth instead of water adds rich flavor to Moist & Savory Stuffing. This recipe from Swanson Broth has become a classic, and the company now offers certified organic chicken broth. You can add dried cranberries and chopped pecans or sausage and mushrooms to jazz up the flavor and add some texture.
