I may have never actually tried this if I hadn’t had such a need for a can of cream of chicken soup and such an aversion to going out to the store two days before Christmas.
I have seen quite a few recipes for this lately, but just didn’t see a need for making it when it is so handy to just pop open a can. I was wrong! Not only is it super quick and easy to make, but is WAY tastier than any glop of cream soup you buy in the store! I don’t know if I’ll ever go back???
So here’s the recipe I chose to try from Sweet Anna’s…
3/4 cup chicken stock (I used Better than Bouillon)
3/4 cup milk, divided
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder (I didn’t have any and it was still good)
1/8 teaspoon paprika
salt & pepper
1/3 cup + 2 Tablespoons flour
Bring the chicken stock, 1/4 cup milk, and spices to a boil over high heat.
*Add chopped sautéed mushrooms or celery for different varieties of soups.
Whisk together the remaining 1/2 cup milk and the flour until smooth.
Whisk the flour mixture into the boiling stock and continue to whisk and stir until it is thick. This won’t take long, by the way…
Use right away or store in fridge to use later.
