An estimated 43 million women in the U.S. are affected by heart disease.2

for tips from Chef Lofaso, as well as downloadable coupons for Campbell’s
heart-healthy products, including Campbell’s® Healthy
® soups (Condensed, Chunky
and 100% Natural), Prego® Heart
® Italian sauces, Swanson®

juices and V8 V-Fusion® 100% vegetable
and fruit juices. People can participate in Campbell’s Address Your
Heart Kitchen Project by sharing their stories about how they care for
their hearts with others in the Address Your Heart online community for
a chance to win a $50,000 kitchen makeover, along with a year’s supply
of Campbell’s heart-healthy products.

Chef Lofaso is personally committed to the fight against heart disease
as her mother was recently diagnosed with early signs of heart disease,
and they have been working together to make small changes in the
kitchen. Chef Lofaso hopes that through this campaign she will inspire
others by translating her skills as a professional chef into simple
healthy kitchen habits.

“As a chef, I was trained to focus on flavor first, so I suggest flavor
swaps or easy substitutions that can make a dish not only heart-healthy
but also delicious,” said Chef Lofaso, author of “The Busy Mom’s
Cookbook” (Penguin Group, 2012). “The pantry is filled with
heart-healthy surprises that add dimension and layers of flavor – with
low salt, fat and sugar. Good solid flavor boosters include nuts or
homemade whole grain croutons, dried herbs, spices and fruits and soup
as ready-made marinades.”

Campbell’s Commitment to Heart Health

Currently in its seventh year, Campbell’s Address Your Heart campaign
has pledged to contribute $5.4 million to the American Heart
Association’s Go Red For Women movement through 2015.

“Through our ongoing commitment to the American Heart Association and
our line-up of heart-healthy products, we have made great strides in
raising awareness of heart disease among women and providing delicious,
heart-healthy products for those who want to improve their heart
health,” said Leah Dunmore, Vice President, U.S. Soup, Campbell Soup
Company. “As part of this year’s Address Your Heart Kitchen Project,
we’re taking our commitment a step further by inspiring others to care
for their hearts through healthier eating and cooking.”

Chef Antonia Lofaso’s Goat Cheese Panzanella
Chicken, Tangerines and Tomato Vinaigrette

A fresh, seasonal take on Chef Lofaso’s famous Panzanella salad from her
acclaimed Los Angeles restaurant, Black Market Liquor Bar, this recipe
takes cues from her Italian roots and features vibrant vegetables, such
as arugula and red onion as the base. Chef Lofaso substitutes a
tangerine instead of a traditional tomato to add sweetness and acid and
boosts the flavor of the vinaigrette with Campbell’s®
Healthy Request® Tomato soup.
This dish is perfect for any night of the week and even easy to assemble
for a heart-healthy lunch at work.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Makes: 4 servings

  4oz crumbled goat cheese
6 cup arugula
6 tangerines, supremed
2 – 4oz butterflied chicken breasts
1/2 small red onion, shaved

4 pieces Pepperidge Farm® Whole Grain
100% Whole Wheat Bread

3T EVOO plus 2t for toasting bread
1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup Campbell’s® Healthy Request®
Condensed Tomato Soup

3T chopped flat leaf parsley
4T freshly picked basil
2T chopped shallots (or 1t of chopped garlic if shallots are
Salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 250F. On a medium baking sheet, brush 2t olive oil
on Pepperidge Farm® Whole Grain 100%
Whole Wheat Bread
and allow to dry out in the oven for about
15 minutes until bread becomes crisp to the touch. Break dried
bread into 1/2 inch pieces about the size of a large crouton and
set aside.


In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together vinegar, Campbell’s®
Healthy Request
® Condensed Tomato Soup,
shallots and chopped parsley. Slowly stream in remaining EVOO and
season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

3. Prepare 2 – 4oz butterflied chicken breasts. Season with 1/2t salt
and pepper and coat lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Place
chicken breasts on a suitable high heat baking sheet and place in
broiler on high for 3 minutes on each side. Allow to cool. Chop once
4. In a large mixing bowl, combine arugula, red onion, bread, chopped
grilled chicken, goat cheese and dress lightly with tomato
vinaigrette. Garnish with tangerines and fresh basil before serving.
(We don’t want the Tangerines to break apart so just lay them gently
throughout the salad to serve.)
