Home Made Chicken Bouillon Cubes

Chicken bouillon cubes are the best way to pack a flavour punch into any sauce, soup, or risotto you’re making.  The only problem is,  the salty cubes you buy are full of preservatives, MSG (“yeast extract”), colouring agents… and that mysterious “spices” term that always makes me a tad anxious.  Seriously? “Spices”?!  Thanks alot.

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, and I’m finally getting around to it.  Making your own chicken bouillon cubes is really, really, really easy.  Whenever you roast a chicken, or buy a roast chicken,  save the leftover skin, bones, etc. (If its a small chicken, under 5 lbs, use two carcases. ahahah I love that word. Carcass… I think I just made a vegan somewhere puke in their own mouth… oopsie. Sorry. :)   )

Right, so, save the leftover bones and skin.  I like to keep a bag in the freezer and put the leftovers in there.  As they acumulate or when I have time, I make chicken stock and bouillon cubes.

There are two other blogs that I found that have great bouillon cube recipes, if you’re looking for additional  inspiration, check out Leslieland and AngeliquesSmorgaabord.
