That gives this Dutch oven dinner Italian flair while still remaining as comforting as ever. What’s even better is it’s just about as pantry-friendly as you can get thanks to Campbell’s® Cream of Chicken Soup, Swanson® Premium White Chunk Chicken Breast, and Pacific Foods® Organic Free-Range Chicken Broth.
