Preheat oven to 350 F (325 F for convection oven).
Mushroom: Grind the dry shiitake mushrooms in a high speed blender until they become fine powder (about 30-40 seconds). Allow the fine mushroom powder mist to settle in the jar for 2-3 minutes before opening the container.
Chicken: In a separate food processor, finely chop cooked chicken.
Combine: Mix well mushroom powder, chicken, onion and garlic powder, salt, and nutritional yeast over a large sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil and use a spoon to mix and coat the oil evenly over the ingredients.
Bake: Spread them out in one thin layer over a large sheet pan. Bake for 10 minutes, middle rack, then remove the sheet pan from the oven. Fluff the ingredients. Lower the temperature to 325 F (300 convection oven) and bake an additional 10 minutes.
Blend again: Out of the oven, allow them to cool and blend everything in a food processor again until they become super fine powder, about 1-2 minutes.
Storage: Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 weeks. For the most fragrant flavor, best finish within 2-3 weeks. Use it as soup/stock base or sprinkle it over meat, seafood, eggs, or vegetables to replace salt.
