Swanson Thai Ginger Stock - Great to Keep on Hand

Swanson has a new product out - Thai Ginger Stock.  A vegitable stock, plus a number of Thai influenced seasonings such as ginger, lemon grass, curry and others.  The question of course is, does it actually taste good?

You know, pretty good.

I picked some up at Walmart, and needing a quick dinner, I made a modified, HMR/Diet freindly version

3 juliened carrots, 1/2 a sliced onion, 3 pealed and diced potato, 1 juliened sweet potato, 1 bag frozen peas and 1/2 a red pepper, sliced.  Plus 4 chicken thighs, sliced.  I used 1/2 chicken stock and 1/2 Thai Ginger broth, as the Thai Ginger Broth is spicy.  Plus 2/3 cup of cocunut milk, some minced cilantro, a lime squirted over the top, all added at the end of the cooking and some chopped jalepeno on the side for me.  No rice, no noodles kept this as a very low calorie dish.
