Substitute for chicken broth?

I am making sesame chicken tonight and forgot that I needed chicken broth....The broth is used in the sauce, 1 cup is needed.

Will I be OK with making my own pale comparison with bullion?

Bouillion is dried broth so it will work well. Just watch the total salt in the dish as bouillion tends to be saltier than broth.

Yes, definitely take a little taste of the boullion before you add it - you may want to dilute it. Some brands can knock your socks off with the salt.

Same here Angie, I always keep bouillion on hand just in case, and as Andy mentioned, definately watch the salt because bouillion is saltier than broth.

The best part is that I always end up adding a little salt to my dish when eating it...too sweet otherwise. Maybe this will be the best method!!!

I'm sure it will be just fine.

I buy chicken broth at Sam's in 8-packs, so I don't run out.

I also keep jarred Chicken base on hand. It lasts forever, and I like it better than bouillon cubes. It is quite salty, though, so I don't add any salt at all until I see how it tastes.
This is just for future reference...you might want to give it a try.
