    6 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
    6 cups Swanson Natural Goodness chicken broth
    1 Tablespoon Promise Light Margarine
    Salt and Pepper to taste
    1/2 cup of flour
    1/2 cup cold water
    Pillsbury Reduced Fat Buttermilk Biscuits


In a large pot over medium heat, simmer chicken in chicken broth until no longer pink. Stir in butter, salt and pepper. Cook until chicken reaches desired tenderness, 15 to 60 minutes. In a bowl, stir together flour and cold water until smooth. Sit flour mixture into soup, bring soup to a rolling boil. Roll biscuits out until flat. Cut into small squares, about 1". Drop biscuit squares into the boiling water neatly around the chicken. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, uncovered, 10 minutes. Then cover and cook 10 minutes more. Serve hot. Makes about 8 servings.
