A Caveat and Affiliates
First off, a little caveat: within my articles you will find affiliate links, meaning if you buy them, I get a small commission. Your cost is not affected. In addition, I am an Amazon Associate and I earn from qualifying purchases on Amazon.
And yes, if I say that I recommend a product here, it means I truly believe it is a good product. I refuse to recommend any product that I have not researched and believe to be a good value. Even better, I provide you with a very clear picture of the product, it’s use, and the probable value. Earning your trust is important to me. I run this website myself and the commissions and donations help support the site. Sound reasonable and fair enough? Let’s continue to the article.
Chik’n Seasoning – Chicken Flavor Seasoning
Looking for a chicken flavor seasoning recipe? Use this recipe to flavor any of the meat substitutes, including tofu. We keep a glass jar of it ready to use with our spice collection. However, if you prefer, mix up the single serving amount each time you need.
single-use amounts given; batch amounts in parentheses ( )
2 Tbsp (1.5 cup) Nutritional Yeast Flakes
2 tsp (8 Tbsp) parsley, ground to a powder
with 1/2 tsp (2 Tbsp) each of the following:
- onion powder
- garlic powder
- ground cumin
- dried oregano
and 1/8 tsp (1/2 Tbsp) each of the following
- black pepper
- cayenne powder
- celery salt
To make a blend of chicken flavor seasoning to keep with your spices, use the amounts listed in parentheses ( ). The batch yields about 3 cups.
NOTE: We use our chicken flavor seasoning frequently, so store it in a glass canning jar with our other spices. However, to keep yours fresh with less frequent use, consider freezing it. Store it in a freezable glass canning jar (some will break in the freezer; make sure yours is freezer safe) and label: chicken flavor seasoning.
Try this with our quesadilla recipe!
Ways We Use Chicken Flavor Seasoning
In addition to recipes we include, we also use chicken flavor seasoning as an add-in for many dishes. Most of our soups and stews use a broth made from either this seasoning or our beef flavor seasoning. However, even those that don’t, often benefit from the addition of a small amount to increase flavors.
We cook with minimal added salts and sugars. However, we do add spices and herbs quite liberally. Sometimes, using a blend such as our chicken flavor seasoning adds just the right flavor. Other additives that help us avoid the need for salt include vinegar, natural fruit, nuts, and seeds.
Reach beyond your salt shaker. You will find a much more flavorful and healthy cooking style!
