This ‘tastes like chicken’ mixture was created one day when I was working on re-creating a recipe that originally included chicken. I needed that chicken-y flavor to get the taste just right. By mixing some of the classic chicken seasonings with a few other ingredients Chicken-less Bouillon was born, or should I say hatched? I add this bouillon mixture to many different recipes to add depth of flavor and richness. It’s great in soups, sauces, grains, beans and so much more. In the ‘Notes’ section you will find one of my favorite (and simple) uses for this bouillon.
