Favorite chicken base?

Whenever recipes call for chicken stock and I don't have 5 hours to whip some up from scratch I use Minor's chicken base. I think it is basically chicken stock that has been condensed into a paste. It is much easier than making stock and takes up less space than canned stock. I'm all out of my Minor's base and was wondering if you chefs out there had any preference as to what brands of chicken base were the best. Thanks!

Drew

The only kind I have ever used is Penzys so I have nothing to compare it to, but I really like it a lot.

Chicken Base

Brand recently tried is Das Dutchman Essenhaus by Amish Country Kitchen. No MSG added. It is very good and not salty like the majority of the ones I've had. No matter how little I would use always have salt as dominent taste. Do not need extra salt.

I have tried Minor's and Penzeys and I actually like Minor's much better. Strangely, as I am a Penzey's devotee, I think it tastes a lot more chickeny than Penzey's which tastes sweet to me. I dont think it has MSG in it.

They sell it at my warehouse club. I just sent 4 tubs each to my mom, brother and sister.

I've used both Penzey's and Minor's as well (both chicken and beef). I'm currently using Minor's and like it.

I think I found the Minor's at BJ's but I'm not sure.

Tone's makes a pretty good one...don't know about the MSG, though. I generally just use canned broth if I don't have any of my own in the freezer.

I buy Minor's at BJ's, but they only have chicken and beef and sometimes their inventory is spotty.
