"I was out of Cream of Chicken soup in my pantry and I needed it for dinner. I altered a recipe I found here on Zaar and whipped this up. It may not be exact, but it works and I can't tell the difference at all. I use it instead of a 10 3/4 ounce can. I will use this any time my shelf is bare!"
Serving Size: 1 (224 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 2
"Works great, and tastes just fine. Helps me out for CP Chicken Stroganoff recipes. Thanks!"
"Thank you! I use this all the time!"
"This worked out perfectly!!! Thanks :)"
"I used 1/2 cup So Delicious coconut milk (unsweetened) and less dried onion flakes. I recommend melting the butter, adding the flour, cooking for a minute. Then slowly adding the milk and broth with the spices and onions. I think that's the traditional way of doing it. Made this for a Chicken Swiss recipe in the crockpot. Thanks!"
"Perfect!! I needed this for a recipe and it worked out great. I never have canned cream soups on hand anymore or the powdered milk that other recipes call for. I doubled the recipe, used all milk and added some celery salt. I loved that it is only as salty as I want to make it. I am not a fan of cream soups but this one I could eat as is!"
"I'm always using cream of chicken soup in recipes, even those that call for cream of mushroom, & I made this very satisfying soup recipe as given, although I did cut the salt back by half, which still worked just fine for us! Thanks for posting a great recipe! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]"
"This was good and it sure came in handy in a pinch. I didn't have any cream so I used all milk. I also added a couple dashes of celery salt. The picture isn't the greatest as I forgot to take a picture until after it was all used up except for just a little dab. Thank you so much for posting."
"This worked perfect! I will be using this recipe alot. Thanks so much for posting."
"This was great! Haven't made it to the store and my husband requested a casserole this evening for dinner. I love how quickly this came together in the pot, because I was a bit skeptical at first. I used all skim milk to cut back on fat and left the flour the same. Used about a teaspoon of onion powder. Used bouillon for the broth, so I didn't add salt (not sugar, like I previously wrote) at the end. Very tasty, and I might just start doing this when I make casseroles, because the flavor is wonderful. Thanks for sharing."
"This turned out really good, and was a great addition to the potato soup I made! I didn't have any cream, so I just used all whole milk, and I also used 1/4 tsp garlic powder instead of the minced garlic, and 1/4 tsp onion powder for one of the tablespoons of dried onion. Fast, easy, yum."
"excellent! this worked out very well and it came together very quickly. i actually might like this flavor better than the real deal. i added a tad of garlic powder. next time, i think i'll use onion powder instead of the dried minced onion flakes, it made the mixture kind of lumpy looking, which is not a big deal really. thank you for posting. this recipe is a keeper!!!"
"This works perfectly! I used it in Recipe #122093. It gives you more control of sodium content in recipes. Thank you for posting."
"This is a great recipe and hopefully it's got less preservatives and stuff, but who knows? I added it to a slow cooker recipe with chicken, salsa, taco seasoning, black beans and brown rice. Yum!"
"Super easy and works great! THANKS!!!"
"I misread the recipe, and used a tbsp of minced garlic - way too much. Aside from that though, turned out great."
"Very good. My kids can't have milk, so I made this with soy milk. I just substituted the milk and heavy cream with soy milk. It worked perfectly!"
"I love this recipe. I will never buy canned again."
"I love that this uses all natural ingredients. Canned soups are full of MSG and other things I can't even pronounce. Thanks for a great substitution."
"I'll use this recipe instead of cream of chicken soup. I loved that I could control what ingredients to use. I followed the recipe and added a pinch of poultry seasoning."
"This was awesome. I just made it tonight. I needed it for a recipe that I am going to be putting in the crock pot tomorrow and didn't have any and I didn't want to go back to town to get a can. This is an easy, quick fix when there isn't cream of chicken soup in the house. The only thing I didn't do was add the onion flakes or the garlic (I forgot to put them in), and this didn't affect the flavor at all. I also omitted the extra salt because chicken broth has enough in it and I have high blood pressure so I am always looking for ways to cut out the extra salt. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I will definately be using this recipe again and again. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
