Homemade Cream of Chicken Condensed Soup
Make delicious homemade cream of chicken soup using a very simple homemade condensed soup recipe and you will never buy that canned goop again!
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- ½ cup chicken stock
- ½ cup milk
- Kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste
Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter is completely melted, add the flour. Cook, stirring rapidly, until the mixture is thick. Grab a whisk, then add the chicken stock, whisking until smooth. Next, add the milk. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring, until thickened. Remove from the heat and add salt and pepper to taste. Use right away or keep for a couple of days in the fridge, although it is best to use it the day you make it.
Other condensed soups:
You can make alternative condensed soups by simply altering the cream of chicken soup slightly by doing the following:
Cream of Mushroom - Add mushrooms to the butter to saute. Use vegetable stock to make it vegetarian.
Cream of Celery - Saute some chopped up celery in the butter. Use vegetable stock to make it vegetarian.
You can freeze the condensed soups in batches. A great way to keep ready-to-use “cans” of condensed soup for your recipes is to make a triple or quadruple batch. Then bag each serving in a pint-sized freezer bag, label and freeze. When you need a “can” of condensed soup, pull out one of the frozen bags of condensed soup, thaw, use as you would a can of soup.
Equivalent to one 10 ½ ounce can condensed soup.
