Chicken Base?

If a recipe calls for chicken base... what is that? It says to put a whole chicken in large pot with celery, carrots, onion, salt, pepper and chicken base.

Anyone know?

Chicken Base is concentrated chicken stock. It is a paste that usually comes in a little tub. I get Minors brand soup bases at BJ's.

Here is it on Amazon.

It's along the same lines as bullion cubes or granules. It's a super concentrated chicken paste. A teaspoon to a cup of water gives you broth. You can use bullion cubes instead. You could also use canned broth in place of the water and chicken base.

I have a jar of something called chicken flavored soup base. It is basically like chicken bullion (sp?) with chicken type spices in it, like a poultry seasoning.
That might be what they're after.

I would use 2 bullion cubes in place of it. I like base MUCH better than bullion cubes. If you are going to the store anyway then see if they have base. If you do not want to wait then a couple of bullion cubes will do just fine.

Base has a much more chickeny flavor where bullion taste more artificial to me at least.

If it was me.... I would add all three cubes and break out the poultry seasoning if you have any, if not, grab the sage, parsley, onion powder, turmeric and other "chicken type" spices you may have on hand, but that's me.

Well, I have an apointment at 3:30, so i'll stop by our grocery store and look for it. We don't have a wal mart in our small town, and the grocery store we have, usually doesn't have alot of things I need... but i'll check before I use the bullion cubes.

Thanks for the help!
