4 cups Swanson® Chicken Stock
1 cinnamon stick
2 pieces star anise
1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 medium zucchini, cut in half lengthwise and sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
2 large carrots, cut in half lengthwise and sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1 tbsp. chopped fresh tarragon leaves
1 tbsp. chopped fresh thyme leaves
1 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley


Heat the stock, cinnamon stick and star anise in an 8-quart saucepot over medium-high heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes. Discard the cinnamon stick and star anise.

Season the chicken as desired. Add the chicken to the saucepot and cook for 5 minutes. Add the zucchini, carrots and herbs. Cook for 8 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender-crisp.

Divide the vegetables among 4 large shallow serving bowls. Top with the chicken and some of the stock mixture.
