Top 5 Chicken Bouillon Brands and Easy Recipes

Chicken Bouillon

We’re not sure if there’s any comfort food better than homemade chicken soup. A single bowl is sure to warm anyone’s belly on a cool fall day. But who wants to go through the trouble of making their own chicken broth these days? We don’t know anyone who has the time for that. Thankfully, we’ve got chicken bouillon, and it’s not just for soup. It can be an integral part of any dish that needs a little chicken flavor.

But where do we start? With so many different chicken bouillons on the market today, it may be a little difficult to figure out which one is best for you. Here, we’ll help narrow it down with our top five chicken bouillon brands available.


1. Herb-Ox Sodium-free Chicken Bouillon

Herb-Ox Sodium-free Chicken Bouillon

We think of chicken bouillon as coming in cube form. But many companies are starting to go to a granulated powder form that dissolves much easier. Herb-Ox has taken its granulated chicken bouillon and individually packaged it for easy use. A single packet will make eight ounces of broth, making it easy to determine how much to use for your recipe.

Herb-Ox Sodium-free Chicken Bouillon uses real chicken flavor and combines it with a subtle blend of herbs, spices, and natural flavors while eliminating the sodium that can often make other bouillon brands overpowering.

The individual packaging is easy and convenient to use and helps seal in freshness. So, even if you don’t use the bouillon often, it’ll continue to have the same great flavor it did the day you bought it.


2. Knorr Chicken Bouillon Cubes

Knorr is well-known for its varieties of herbs, spices, and soup mixes. The company combined real chicken flavor with onion, parsley, and other spices within its chicken bouillon cube to create a mixture that’s considerably tastier than most other dry bouillon mixtures available.

This bouillon is great for anything that needs added chicken flavor, from the usual soups and stews to sauces and gravy. Additionally, you can add it to rice or vegetables as a flavor enhancer.

The easy-to-use individual bouillon cubes make it easy to get the perfect flavor every time.


3. Bou Chicken Bouillon Cubes

Bou Chicken Bouillon Cubes

Bou prides itself on providing great flavors while using better ingredients and reducing sodium. Like all of its other great bouillon cubes, the company’s chicken cubes take real chicken flavor and combine it with all-natural lemongrass, garlic, ginger, and soy to produce a bouillon that’s non-GMO and gluten-free. It also has no artificial flavors and has half the salt of other popular brands.

The Bou Chicken Bouillon Cubes are smaller when compared to other bouillon cubes, but they don’t disappoint as far as flavor is concerned. They pack a powerful punch of flavors suitable for just about any meal.


4. Edward and Son’s Not Chick’N Bouillon Cubes

Edward and Son’s Not Chick’N Bouillon Cubes offers a vegan alternative to typical chicken bouillon without sacrificing flavor.

All of Edward and Son’s vegan products are made from ethically sourced ingredients that are perfect for anyone who has special diet requirements. They’re kosher, keto-friendly, organic, and very low in sodium.

How long do chicken bouillon cubes last?

Chicken bouillon cubes typically have a shelf life of about 2 years if stored in a cool, dry place. However, it’s always best to check the expiration date on the packaging. Once opened, the bouillon cubes should be stored in an airtight container to prevent moisture and humidity from affecting their quality and taste. It’s also recommended to use them within a few months after opening for best results.
