Chicken base is on of my go to essential ingredients. I have every type of base they make. It is essential in soup preparations. :-) Boil a whole chicken for about 1 1/2 hour. i like to add a couple of carrots for sweetness before boiling. Break apart to cool down. Taste broth and add about a T at a time of base.( It doesn't add salt like boullion or broth) We also love to add a little spice, a little crushed red pepper or hot sauce to broth and maybe a touch of garlic and or onion powder, a little pepper, alot of time a little worcester, what ever you wish . Add fresh carrots, and whatever vegies you want. If you wish, when you have the veggies in, chicken deboned and back in broth bring to full boil and make bisquick dumplings. We have found better luck to cover and uncover opposite of what their directions say. Chicken noodle soup, I use carrots, celery and boil the noodles seperately adding at the end.
