Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup

Find it On Pinterest

Cook's Note: So many recipes call for condensed Cream of Chicken soup and I HATE the way that stuff tastes, smells and looks coming out of the can. I would typically call it Cream of Chemicals and just move on from anything that called for it. Until I found... drum roll please... wait for it.. homemade Cream of Chicken soup on Pinterest and let me tell you - this stuff is AWESOME! It's not only tasty, chemical free and so much better for you - but also - its EASY to make! Who knew? Now that you have the recipe (below) - you have no excuses not to make it yourself! 

What You Will Need:

3 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup organic chicken broth
1/2 cup organic skim milk or almond milk
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Pinch of Sea Salt


In a small sauce pan, melt the butter on medium low (be sure it doesn’t burn!) One melted, add the flour slowly and whisk until a roux forms  about 1 -2 minutes.
Next, add garlic salt and ground black pepper and pinch of sea salt if desired. Slowly whisk in organic chicken broth and milk. Bring to a simmer and continue cooking until mixture thickens like soup.
Finally, you will remove from heat and let cool slightly.  You can use this soup the same as you would a regular can of cream of chicken condensed soup.

Note from original recipe: Soup can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge until ready to be used on the same day.

Yields: 12 oz of Cream of Chicken Soup - just like the condensed kind you buy at the store - only no chemicals and totally homemade in less than 10 minutes!
