How do I Make the Cream of Chicken Soup?

- Pour the milk and chicken stock (or broth) into the bowl with the flour mixture and whisk it together until all of the lumps are gone.
- Heat up the butter in the saucepan on medium heat. Add the milk and flour mixture to the saucepan and stir. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the cream of chicken soup is thick.
Mix the flour, garlic salt, onion powder, black pepper, and salt in a medium-sized bowl.
Add the milk and chicken stock (or broth), and mix until all of the lumps are gone.
I used 2-percent milk for this recipe and the creamier the milk, the creamier it will taste.
Mix it up well before you pour it into the saucepan. I use a whisk and it works great to get rid of the lumps–that way, it’s nice and smooth when it’s done.
Add the butter to the saucepan and let it melt.
Is there anything more beautiful in the kitchen than butter? Not much! Well, the smell of melting butter, because you know it’s time to eat soon.
Add the flour mixture to the saucepan of butter. Once you add the mixture to the pan, it will take less than five minutes to thicken and you can pour it into jars to keep in the refrigerator.
Homemade Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
Tips while cooking:
The cream of chicken soup recipe cooks fast. That is one of the reasons I mix the flour into the liquid and get all of the lumps out before I put it in the pan.
Don’t walk away and do dishes, because it cooks so fast, and if you’re not paying attention, you will end up with some lumps.
The lumps are not the end of the world, but it’s a lot prettier and easier to mix into other things when it’s smooth.
That’s it! It’s that easy.
How much condensed soup will this make?
This recipe will make approximately 10 to 11 oz. of condensed cream of chicken soup. A can of condensed soup from the store is 10.5 ounces, so this fits the bill.
How long can I keep the condensed soup in the refrigerator?
You can use it immediately, or put it into a mason jar and save it for a couple of weeks in the refrigerator.
