Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup

These days I just can't bring myself to use a can of soup in a recipe that I have gone to the trouble of making sure is real food.  So, I looked around to find a good, fast substitute.

Basically, I found that I can make a white sauce and substitute the milk with chicken stock and I have cream of chicken soup! It also makes a great gravy to put on mashed potatoes.

Melt 4 T butter.  Add 4T of flour.  Mix.  Slowly whisk in 1 cup of chicken stock.  This should thicken.  Now I have soup to add to my favorite recipes.

  1. That sounds great. I read over at Heavenly Homemakers and she just add cream sometimes. I love all the alternatives. :)
