Knorr Homestyle Chicken Stock

     Have you heard of the new Homestyle Stock from Knorr? It is a really concentrated chicken or beef stock that comes in a package of four tubs. Each tub makes about 3 1/2 cups of broth (about a teaspoon per cup), but you can use more or less stock according to your preference. 
     I was recently given the opportunity by Smiley360 to try and review Knorr Homestyle stock. Off course I was excited to accept. I got the chicken flavor, which is what I prefer anyway, but it did take me a week or two to get a chance of trying it out.
     So, when I finally got around to opening it up, I was a little surprised to find it was a gel-like substance rather than creamy. You have to heat the water you add it too or it will not dissolve. Read more about Knorr Homestyle Stock here.
     I decided to try it in a chicken gravy type dish over rice. I thought I would be clever and add extra to make the gravy more "flavorful" but the end result was really salty. So I recommend that you stick to the directions, or don't vary it to the extent I did, which is 2 teaspoons in a cup of water. Otherwise the flavor was pretty good. I may try it again sometime--just not as concentrated.
     I put in chunks of chicken I had pan seared into the gravy and served over rice.

     If you would like to join Smiley360 and receive free products to try out (in exchange for your opinion), you may do so here. I have only been with them since January and have already received 2 products to try out for them! They are always looking for new members and I believe they may still have some Knorr Homestyle Stock for review. Make sure you sign up and see what they have available for you!
