Maggi Bouillon Cubes

Maggi Bouillon Cubes
Food For Thought Header

Throughout the years I have tested many versions of Broth and none are as good as Maggi Bouillon Cubes, in pretty much all aspects. They are loaded with Flavor, easy storage and cheap. You get quite a bit in a box, which yields about 96 Cups of Broth for roughly $5.00 CAD. These can be a bit tricky to source, so if you have to you can order them online. They are absolutely worth it and last a very long time.

MAGGI Chicken Bouillon Ingredients

Salt, hydrogenated palm oil (contains soy lecithin), monosodium glutamate, wheat flour, sugar, onion powder, autolyzed yeast extract, dehydrated parsley, colour, disodium inosinate, disodium guanylate, spices, flavour.

Where to buy Maggi Bouillon

Check your local T & T supermarket which is where I pick them up at. No Frills also offers them as well as Superstore and some Walmart’s. You can also order them on Amazon. These are becoming more popular as I am seeing them pop up in quite a few places.

Maggi Bouillon Quantity

They comes in a box of 24 smaller boxes containing 2 Bouillon cubes each. Mix each Cube with 2 Cups of Water. This gives you a total of 96 C of Broth for about $5.00 CAD.

Maggi Bouillon Instructions

Dissolve 1 Bouillon cube in 2 Cups of Boiling water. Adjust the strength by adding in less or more water.

Maggi Bouillon Flavors

Maggi offers these mainly in Chicken & Beef flavors. There is a Vegetable flavored one. But I have never seen this in my area.

The benefit of having Bouillon cubes is shelf stability and ease of storage. The entire box stores up to 96 cups of Broth, all in a small box that you can place in the cupboards. Another benefit is that you can control the strength, opting for a Strong or Weaker Broth just by the amount of water you add.

Using Bouillon cubes in place of broth

Add 2 Cups of water per 1 cube of Maggi Bouillon to make 2 cups of Broth. Heat it up so that the cube dissolves and you got broth that can be used in various recipes.

Strong Broth

For a Strong broth add less than 2 Cup of Water to 1 Bouillon Cube. I use this for the Fried Chicken Marinade.

  • 1/2 C Water
  • 1 Maggi Chicken Bouillon Cube
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt & MSG

Heat the ingredients up in a small pot until the bouillon cube completely dissolves. Remove from heat and refrigerate until cooled down, then add the chicken to marinade.

Another place I use a slightly Strong Broth is with the Poultry Brine. This is used to add extra flavor to the chicken for any dish where the Chicken is not breaded but instead seasoned.
