If you know me by now, you know I am completely obsessed with Better Than Bouillon and use it in many of my recipes. Not only is it so much more practical, affordable and more flavorful than most other bouillons/bases, but it also comes in a huge variety of flavors. 

What’s even more fantastic about it is that it’s not just for soups and sauces – it’s also incredible to use to make the most amazing marinades. Just check out this absolutely astounding Garlic Parmesan Marinade I’ve made using Garlic Better Than Bouillon. No matter what you put it on, it’s going to make that food’s flavor comes to life and in ways you never expected it! 

Here’s How I Made It! (scroll to the bottom for the fully-written recipe): 

Begin by taking a mixing bowl and adding in vegetable oil… 

…and our key ingredient to make this marinade as magical as it is, Garlic Better Than Bouillon

Just scoop a little out of the jar… 

…add it to the oil and whisk together until the bouillon base becomes little flecks. 

Now, add in some white vinegar… 

…red wine vinegar… 

…a lemon… 

…(that’s juiced, of course)… 

…dried thyme… 

…poultry seasoning… 

…Italian seasoning… 

…and grated Parmesan cheese. 

Whisk together… 

…until well combined 

Transfer to a jar/container and use either immediately or let chill in the fridge. 

To use the marinade, simply place some chicken into a large freezer bag and follow it up with some marinade… 

…seal the bag pressing out any air… 

…and swoosh everything around in the bag until the marinade coats the food. You can then let is marinate in the fridge for up to 24 hours if using chicken or veggies. 

If using shrimp, do the same thing. Add to a freezer bag… 

…add the marinade… 

…and swoosh around. Just make sure if marinating seafood that you don’t go longer than 10 minutes of marinating due to the acidity of the vinegars and lemon juice. 

Cook your meat as you see fit, whether that be in a frying pan, grill, oven or pressure cooker. 

When it’s time to eat… 

…brace yourselves. 

This is going to be one INSANELY flavorful dish all because of that wondrous marinade! All made possible due to the wonders of Garlic Better Than Bouillon

Jeffrey's Tips

This will be enough marinade for about 2 lbs of whatever you’re cooking (assume 1/4 cup of marinade for each pound of food). If making more than that, make more marinade!

You can also totally use the marinade as a wonderful final coat after the food has been cooked in it!

It will store well in an air-tight container in the fridge up to about a week or so.
