FORGET FEEDING YOUR FAMILY FAST FOOD AS A REGULAR DIET. Save fast food for an occasional treat and feed your family quick, healthy meals at home!

SPEEDY CHICKEN STEW
2 (14-ounce) cans chicken broth
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1 (20-ounce) package frozen cream-style corn
1 (10-ounce) package frozen baby lima beans
1 large baking potato, peeled and diced
1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced (optional)
1/2 large sweet onion, diced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
3 cups chopped cooked rotisserie chicken
1 (14-1/2-ounce) can seasoned diced tomatoes with garlic, basil, and oregano
1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
In a Dutch oven, combine the broth, bouillon, corn, lima beans, potato, jalapeno, onion, salt, pepper, and thyme. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring often.
Reduce the heat and simmer 15 to 20 minutes until veggies are tender.
Stir in the chicken, tomatoes, and tomato paste; simmer another 10 minutes.
