Maggi Bouillon Cubes
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 come 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.
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.
Recipes using Maggi Bouillon Cubes
There are many recipes that use Maggi Bouillon Cubes on JAHZKITCHEN. When a certain recipe calls for Broth, I am almost always using these or Knorr for broths like Pork or Vegetable. It’s Quick, Easy, Cheap, and loaded with Flavor.
Fried Chicken Marinade
The go-to marinade for JFC Fried Chicken. It is just way too good and easy, too. Marinate the Chicken and go straight to breading.
This uses the Fried Chicken Marinade above with some extra ingredients to create the Popeyes signature marinade and some Crispy Fried Chicken with all those Kernels.
This Poultry Brine is used for Chicken that is not breaded to add Flavor and affect the texture.
Strong broth made with Maggi Bouillon cubes for a Poutine Gravy. It is used in all other Gravies too.
