    I am making bott boi (pot pie) and I started the dish not knowing that I don't have any chicken bullion left. Is there something that I can substitute for chicken bullion?

    Chicken stock, or if the chicken you are using is bone in, use it to make stock first, then use the meat. You may need to season more heavily.

    Chicken broth is good. You may need a little more salt if using a reduced sodium broth, but you should be ok.

    The main ingredient is chicken bullion is salt.

    I use a can of cream of chicken soup for my "gravy" to hold everything together in the pie; just don't dilute it.
