Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup
If there is one canned item that I use a LOT of, it’s cream of chicken soup. Especially for my family’s favorite, Chicken Roll Ups! But I’ve been thinking, there’s got to be a way to make this stuff myself. And without all of the scary additives. Just look at what’s in a can of the store bought stuff and you’ll see what I mean.
In my search today, I came across a recipe on Tammy’s Recipes that I just have to try. I’ve printed it off to use when I run out of my current stash of cream of chicken soup, but I wanted to put the bug in your ear while it was fresh in my mind.
Here’s the recipe:
Homemade Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
Makes 3 cups
- 1 1/2 c. chicken broth
- 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/8 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp salt (or to taste)
- 1/4 tsp parsley
- dash of paprika
- 1 1/2 c. milk
- 3/4 c. flour (can use whole wheat)
Pour the chicken broth, seasonings, and 1/2 c. milk into a medium saucepan and bring to a boil for about 2 min.
In a separate bowl, mix together the remaining milk and the flour, and add this to the saucepan, whisking briskly while bringing it back up to a boil. Continue to stir and boil until the mixture is thickened.
And that’s it!! I can’t believe how EASY this is to make. Why have I never tried this before?!
I think my homemade chicken broth would be wonderful with this! Tammy says you can also add bits of chicken if you’d like. And it can be frozen and thawed when needed.
Now… to learn if there is a way to can this stuff for future use!! Any ideas??
