If a recipe calls for chicken bouillon cubes and you only have granules, do you know how many cubes equals so many tablespoons of granules?

Usually you add 1 cube to make 1 cup of bullion. How many tsp of granules does it say on jar to make 1 cup of bullion? That would be the amount you use to substute for 1 cube.

Depending on the brand of granules (and the brand of cubes, for that matter), it's usually one teaspoon of granules to one cup of water. The directions are right on the jar's label, though, to be fair, they may be a bit small.

My experience is that one cube = one teaspoon.

1 TBSP = 3 teaspoons, 1 tsp of granules would be 1/3 Tbsp of granules

1 Tbsp = 3 tsp, so 1 tsp of granules = 1/3 Tbsp granules (more than a 1/4 Tbsp but less than 1/2 Tbsp)

You will need 2 1/2 cubes to equal the 2 1/2 teaspoons. Each cube will equal 1 teaspoon.

### Question: Measuring Chicken Boullion?

June 17, 2017

I use to use Wylers chicken granules and since they have been replaced with the chicken powder I have no idea how much to use. I find there isn't much taste in the powder. What I wanna know is how much powder to use for 2 tablespoons of granules, or even if I use chicken cubes how much of those for 2 tbs.?

Thank you.

If you are talking about the ones that come in foil packets use one packet for each tablespoon.

Usually the measurements on the container will state how much of each to make one cup of broth. i checked some sites and it seems that most of the companies state the same measurements:
Normal size cube: 1 cube + water = 1 cup broth
Powder: 1 tsp powder + water = 1 cup broth
Granules: 1 tsp + water = 1 cup broth
Take this with the measurement that 1 Tbsp = 3 tsp and multiply 2 Tbsp x 3 tsp - 6 of any one (cube, powder, granules).
Although the answer would be 6 of any one (cube, powder, gradual) to equal 2 Tbsp, I would suggest you start with less and add more if needed.
