cups Swanson® Crafted Roasted Chicken Broth
stems fresh basil leaves
green onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
cloves garlic, minced

Heat the broth, basil sprigs, green onions and garlic in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook for 10 minutes. Remove and discard the basil stems.
