These quick supermarket flavor boosters add a rich foundation of savory flavor to everything from casseroles and gravies to greens and gumbo.
Best Bouillon Cube
Made by simmering meat and dehydrating the liquid, these cubes make for easy measuring (1 cube = 1 tsp.). Simply drop a cube into a pot of soup, stew, or greens to deepen the flavor.
Best Bouillon Powder
A little MSG is a good thing. This powdered bouillon makes rich broth on its own, or use it pinch-by-pinch in place of salt to add savory chicken flavor to chicken pot pies, gravies, or slow-cooker braises.
This concentrated chicken stock is the most versatile option. Reconstitute in hot water to add extra depth and richness to vegetable sautés, sauces, or gumbo. Try brushing on chicken before roasting. It's delicious!
Our go-to broth. This healthier version boasts clean chicken flavor and melds with added flavorings and spices for pan sauces or soups. Lower sodium means you can reduce it without making it too salty.
Homemade Reduced-Sodium Broth
Get more bang for your cluck from a rotisserie chicken (about $3 more!) by using the carcass to make flavorful broth.
