Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup

There are tons of delicious recipes out there that use cream of chicken soup, especially crock pot recipes.  I used to turn my nose up at these recipes, because I try to avoid cooking with c of c soup.  It has soy in many different forms and other scary additives, too.  If you know me, you know I don't like to eat soy.  It's in SO many things you'd never imagine it would be in.  It's usually in the form of a hydrogenated fat and is one of the highest marketed genetically modified organisms.  I sometimes make exceptions for the emulsifier, soy lecithin, because it's in most chocolate.  I can't live without chocolate!

Anyway...enough of my bratty preaching about soy.

Here is how you can make your own cream of chicken soup!


Ingredients:

3 T Butter
1.5 T Flour
3/4 C Milk
3/4 C Chicken Broth

This recipe makes the equivalent of about one can of cream of chicken soup.


Directions:

Melt the butter on medium heat. 


When it's completely melted, stir in the flour until well combined.


Turn to medium high.  Stir in the milk and chicken broth.


Bring to a boil, stirring continuously until thick.


Remove from heat.  Add salt and pepper if you like.


Yum, yum, yum...this stuff is good!  It's really easy and quick to make if you're in a hurry.

I used it in a chicken pot pie tonight, and it turned out great.

I think I want to try making cream of mushroom soup next.

Pin It!
