Cream of Chicken Soup Substitute

I am on a quest to make my meals healthier. Unfortunately, it's sometimes not that easy. If I could find a substitute for condensed soup, it would be awesome. I decided to google it and see what I could come up with, and I found a recipe for cream of chicken soup, one of the more common condensed soup varieties on a website called the kitchen. To make cream of anything else, just substitute the broth for another type. For cream of mushroom, cook some mushrooms down in the butter, then add the flour and some cream. I used this recipe tonight and it worked perfectly. Go ahead, try it. No longer will you skip over recipes with condensed soup in them, or cringe when you dump a whole can full of glump into your pot. I hope this helps you as much as it has helped me!

Cream of Chicken Condensed Soup

from the kichn
*makes a little over a cup, equivalent to one can of soup

3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons white flour
1/2 cup chicken stock or broth
1/2 cup milk
Salt and pepper

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat then add the flour. Cook, stirring rapidly, until the mixture is thick.

Add the chicken stock and whisk until smooth, then add the milk. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring, until thickened. Remove from the heat and add salt and pepper to taste.

This will keep for a couple days in the fridge, but it's best to use it the day you make it.
