Homemade Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup! No More Cans!

We do a lot of cooking with condensed cream soups around here. I am ashamed to say that I have purchased it in a can more times than I care to admit. However, I prefer to make Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup from scratch when ever time allows. You can make a double or even a triple batch to divide and freeze for later use. I do not recommend canning this recipe. Canning anything with flour or milk is not safe according to SB Canning.com. However, this recipe will keep nicely in the fridge up to a week, or in the freezer 2 – 3 months if properly sealed. See freezing tips! You may also be surprised just how easy it is to make from scratch!

In a large sauce pan on medium heat, melt the butter.

Add the flour to the melted butter, whisking as you add it.  You are making a roux, this will thicken your soup.

Cook the flour butter mixture for 2 minutes. Stirring constantly so it does not burn.

Add in your milk and spices, continue stirring until your soup is thick. This took 10 – 12 minutes for me on medium heat.

Use in soups, casseroles, dips and so much more! The taste is much more flavorful and extremely better for you than the condensed soup in a can. If you thought your dishes tasted good before, you will be thrilled with the way they taste using this recipe!

 


Remember this is a Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup! It is not meant to be eaten right from the pan.

When using this in recipes use equal parts condensed soup to equal parts milk.

This recipe is best when used right away, however you can refrigerate in an air tight container up to a week. You can also portion out the soup and freeze in ziplock freezer bags.
