Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Better Than Bouillon Organic Roasted Chicken Base
This Better Than Bouillon Organic Roasted Chicken Base is my favorite product to use when I want to add more chicken flavor to a recipe. And this product is something I always have in my fridge!
For many years I’ve been a fan of making homemade chicken stock, and I love the way making stock leaves the whole house smelling great, and I also think homemade chicken stock really makes a difference in the flavor in many recipes. I save chicken scraps in the freezer and every so often I make a big pot of stock and freeze it.
But I know there are people who think making stock is just too much trouble, and there are also times when you only need a small amount and it’s not worth thawing a container of stock from the freezer or opening a carton of the Kirkland Chicken Stock (affiliate link) that’s my choice when I’m buying it.
That’s when I’ll reach for this Better Than Bouillon Organic Roasted Chicken Base that’s a product I always have in my fridge. And I’m not always a homemade stock purist; I’ll add a bit of this chicken soup base to my bubbling stock when I don’t have enough chicken scraps.
Why do I like Better Than Bouillon Organic Roasted Chicken Base so much?
I’ve tried a lot of different brands, but Better Than Bouillon is my hands-down favorite for chicken soup base. It comes in a large jar that lasts forever, and a small amount adds a lot of real chicken flavor. (I always try to get the low-sodium version, and it’s even organic which I think is a sign of quality in a product like this.)
Where do I buy Better Than Bouillon Organic Roasted Chicken Base?
I’ve been loving this product even more now that I’m buying it at Costco, where sometimes they have the extra large size jars you see in these photos. But you can find this in most grocery stores or buy Better than Bouillon Organic Roasted Chicken Base (affiliate link) from Amazon.
Is Better Than Bouillon Organic Roasted Chicken Base Gluten-Free?
Shirley from Gluten Free Easily tells me that Better than Bouillon no longer guarantees their products are gluten-free and on their website Better Than Bouillon confirms that their products are made in a facility that stores wheat, so this product may not work for people who have to avoid gluten. (I have tried to make a note of that on recipes where I’ve tagged the recipe gluten-free, but I could have missed some since I didn’t know this for many years.)
