If you're looking for a chicken substitute in your recipes but are eggplant allergic or sensitive to egg, dairy, or meat, RC Fine Food's Vegan GF FlavorMatch® Chicken Flavor Base might just be your new go-to ingredient. As a food blogger and recipe developer who loves creating egg-free recipes, I was excited to give this chicken-flavored broth a try.

The base comes in a 12-ounce container and can make 5 gallons of chicken-flavored broth, which is a great value for anyone who wants to make a large batch of soup, stew, or sauce. The granular base dissolves easily in hot water, and the final product has a golden color and a flavor that's pretty close to chicken broth. While I wouldn't say it is an exact replica of chicken broth, it definitely adds a savory umami flavor that can make your dishes taste more complex and satisfying.

This chicken-flavored base is also gluten-free, vegan, and Kosher Pareve certified, which makes it a versatile ingredient for people with different dietary needs. I can see it being a great fit for anyone who wants to reduce their meat consumption or experiment with vegan cooking. It's also a good option for people who have sudden egg intolerance symptoms or delayed egg allergy symptoms, as it doesn't contain any egg products.

While I enjoyed using this chicken-flavored base, there are a few things to consider before buying it. For one, the base contains a fair amount of salt, so you might want to adjust the seasoning of your recipe accordingly. Also, the final product might not have exactly the same color as chicken broth, which might not matter in some recipes but could be a deal-breaker for others.

Pros: Vegan, GF, Kosher Pareve certified, adds savory flavor to dishes, good value for a large batch of broth.
Cons: Contains salt, might not have the exact same color as chicken broth.

Overall, I think RC Fine Food's Vegan GF FlavorMatch® Chicken Flavor Base is a solid option for anyone who wants to add a chicken-like flavor to their recipes without using any actual chicken. It's not a perfect substitute, but it can definitely elevate the taste of your dishes and make them more interesting. As someone who's always on the lookout for egg-free baking and cooking ingredients, I appreciate that the base is egg-free, dairy-free, and meat-free, too. My final rating for this product is 8 out of 10.
