Full Answer

To make dry bouillon, the broth is dehydrated and formed into cubes or granules. Substituting re-hydrated chicken bouillon is a quick and easy solution for cooks that do not have homemade chicken stock on hand.

The process of making chicken stock from scratch can be quite time consuming. The stock is made by boiling chicken, vegetables and seasonings for hours, and then straining out the solids, and keeping the broth to use in recipes.

  • Q:

    Should you boil chicken before grilling it?

    A:

    Boiling chicken before grilling is not required, however, parboiling the meat can make grilling easier. Grilling raw chicken can be more difficult due to the uneven thickness of the pieces, particularly when it comes to chicken breast. Always ensure chicken is cooked through completely before serving it, as uncooked chicken can cause food poisoning.
