I used twice the bouillon for stronger chicken flavor, then I decided to see how 'homemade' I could make it taste by adding basil, fresh ground pepper, celery salt, garlic powder, and 2 pats of butter. I think I could slide this past my own grandmother! ;-)

I sauteed about 6 sliced mushrooms in some butter & added a little white wine to reduce. Then I used beef bouillon instead of chicken and put mushroom/wine/butter mix into the gravy. Finished it off with a dash of worchestershire and some black pepper. I won't eat a good steak without it again! Thanks!

I always add an extra cube. This is how my mother and grandmother taught me to make it, only they would add a shot of ketsup, for color reasons.
