Homemade Seasoning Recipes

I so love to make my seasonings at home. They are so easy to make. You never have to get store-bought and hope it tastes like you expect. You always have it made from the best ingredients you can, and especially, you can alternate all as per your needs.

If I am making sausage seasoning to use in sausage recipes for the whole family, I skip chili powder because of the kids.

But if you plan a big party and all of our friends come for a Taco party, I double batch of taco seasoning together with chili powder.

With my everything bagel seasoning, it is similar. When making bagels for kids, I replace black cumin with black sesame seeds because that is what they like.

And this is a significant advantage when you have various food powders at home, some of which you can make yourselves.

Do you not have curry powder? Make one at home. You can make everything in your kitchen.

In just a few seconds, you can combine all ingredients for the best delicious seasoning that tastes great and is much better than the store-bought.

What Is Chicken Powder?

The chicken powder is a fine powder made from pure cooked and dried chicken. The good news is that you can make it all from complete scratch in your kitchen. And I have a recipe for each.

Is Powdered Chicken Healthy?

Our recipe is extra healthy because it contains nothing but pure meat.

Be careful, and do not compare this to a store-bought chicken powder. They are mostly a mixture of chicken bouillon substitutes, lots of salt and sugar, plus additional ingredients to keep the moisture out of the airtight containers.

Why Homemade Powder?

For all the reasons I mentioned above, you should make your powder at home with a few easy steps I will guide you through.

To sum it up once again for you:

  1. Have a box of pure 100% protein always on hand.
  2. Extra easy chicken flavor for your cooked meals.
  3. Perfect addition to your homemade seasonings.
  4. Super healthy.
  5. It contains only pure chicken.
  6. It tastes like chicken.

What Are Chicken Powder Recipe Ingredients?

Our powder recipe contains only pure chicken. Nothing else.

Is There the Best Chicken Seasoning as Flavor for Your Chicken?

If you want your powder flavored with additional herbs or spices, you can spice up your chicken before cooking or baking it. In that way, all the flavors stay in during the drying process and blending.

How Much Chicken Powder To Use?

It depends on what you are planning to use the chicken powder for. For seasonings, add one teaspoon. For soups, use one tablespoon.

For mixing into your homemade bouillon powder or homemade chicken bouillon powder, two tablespoons would give you an even better chicken bouillon flavor than any bouillon cubes will ever do.

Do I Put the Meat Powder on Before or After I Cook It?

If you plan to add our powders to cooked meals, I suggest about 10 minutes before you finish the whole meal. It takes about 10 minutes for any meat or vegetable powder to rehydrate, and as it does not need any more cooking and you do not want to lose any extra nutrition, towards the end would be the best solution.

Can I Make Chicken Powder at Home?

You can make your chicken or any other powder at home using our dehydrated food methods. Even if you do not own Instant Pot, Dehydrator, or Magic Bullet, I have tips on making it without the gadgets.

How To Make This Recipe?

I will take you through every step, from a frozen chicken to how you make a powder. Cooked frozen chicken in 10 minutes, dehydrated in a few hours, and blended in seconds for the best powder. It is in a few easy to follow steps and is super simple to make. 

Kitchen gadgets needed:

  • Instant pot
  • Dehydrator
  • Magic Bullet

You can replace every single gadget with our tips below.

Ingredients needed:

  • Chicken Breasts
  • Water

*Exact measurements are listed in the recipe card below.

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS TO MAKE A DEHYDRATED CHICKEN POWDER

First Step: Prepare your chicken

For making a pure protein powder, all you need is chicken. I have used my recipe for making frozen chicken in an Instant Pot in 10 minutes, which you can follow.

But generally, you can use any leftovers, baked chicken, or how you usually cook your chicken. 

If you have that, you can skip my next step.

Second Step: Cooking a frozen chicken

Open your instant pot, place a rack and add one cup of water or broth.

If you want to add some seasoning that goes well with chicken, you can do that now. Place your frozen chicken breasts into the Instant Pot. Close the lid, close the valve and set the pressure high for 10 minutes.

For more details, please check the recipe post.

Third Step: Dehydrating

In the same way, I have a post on cooking the chicken. I have made a full post with all the tips and tricks on dehydrating the chicken. Tu sums it up here, once you cook your chicken, let it cool thoroughly.

Shred the cooked chicken into small pieces using a fork or your hands. Place those on dehydrating trays and dry for 5 to 7 hours, depending on the size and thickness of your meat.

Fourth Step: Grind

Once your chicken pieces are dehydrated, place them into the magic bullet, food processor, blender, or coffee grinder. Blend thoroughly until a smooth, dry powder forms.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • Instant pot – use a cooking pot for cooking the chicken. You can also use leftover meat from any chicken dishes.
  • Dehydrator – oven or air fryer will help dry your meats in case the dehydrator is not in your kitchen
  • Magic Bullet – powder your dry food with a coffee grinder, blender, or food processor.
  • Type of meat – any leftover, cooked, baked chicken thighs or any cut of chicken you have available.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Today we have a few more questions to answer, which you can skip, but they are all vital if you want to go for a whole powdering process for various reasons.

Recipes To Use Chicken Seasoning Powder?

If you are cooking anything with veggies and chicken, adding a few teaspoons of pure protein to a sauce adds a chicken flavor and intensifies the nutrition even more.

When you make chicken noodle soup, make chicken broth or stew. That would be another suggestion. Adding a bit of this delicious powder in is a great tip.

And as I have already mentioned, add a bit into your seasoning for that extra protein.

Adding extra protein and replacing your store-bought bouillon is great if you have vegetable bouillon powder.

Can I Make Soups, Broth, or Chicken Soup and Use Powder To Add Flavor?

Adding powder to water is an excellent idea when cooking broth or any soup. I usually add one teaspoon of powder per 1 cup of broth.

How Do I Make Chicken Salt Seasoning?

It is super easy to make your chicken salt. Blend our powder with Himalayan salt 2 in one ratio and store. You can also add some extra dry herbs or onion powder. Season your favorite recipes or add them when cooking chicken.

Can I Make Chicken Bouillon Powder Recipe?

You can also make bouillon powder out of your soup, but the explanation would need a whole recipe post on its own. But yes, it is possible, and quite a few households do it.

Is Chicken Stock Powder the Same as Making Homemade Bouillon Powder?

The process of making a powder is the same. The only difference is that you make stock of bones and meat and a bouillon of vegetables and meat. Otherwise, the further steps are identical.

What Is the Best Chicken Broth Substitute?

Vegetable broth is the best substitute for chicken broth. And if you add our homemade powder, you can immediately have chicken broth done in seconds.

What Is Easy Vegan Chicken Bouillon Powder Ingredients?

You can make your vegan bouillon recipe to use in vegan recipes with simple replacements. Instead of chicken powder, add nutritional yeast and use it as you would use chicken bouillon. 

Can I Use Vegan Chicken Broth Powder and Nutritional Yeast as a Replacement?

Yes, nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast that adds extra flavor to vegetable dishes and fills you with protein like amino acids, vitamins, and minerals.

Is There a Recommendation for a Substitute for the Poultry Seasoning?

Strong herbs are the best to use as a substitute for your poultry seasoning. You can pick from sage, thyme, marjoram, garlic, onion, basil, rosemary, oregano, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, or Za’atar. I always dry all of my garden herbs and mix them.

What Is the Best Homemade Chicken Seasoning Blend?

As we are writing about chicken, mentioning a chicken seasoning blend you can use before cooking it for your powder is wise.

Unfortunately, I do not have a chicken seasoning recipe on my blog. But a mixture of rosemary, sage, oregano, marjoram, tarragon, garlic, salt and pepper, onion, basil, dill, or marigold. Of course, all in a dry version and mixed.

How Do I Store Homemade Seasoning Blends?

Store this seasoning in your pantry in an airtight container. Store in a sealed jar to prevent moisture from coming in.

  1. Hello!

    I see a lot of people grinding the name brand Carnivore Crisps into a powder and using to coat things like chicken nuggets or chicken parm. Can we use the powder in this way?
