Cream of Chicken Substitute

Cream of Chicken Substitue Recipe

Pinit

I would love to have the time, money, and self-discipline to eat nothing but all natural, whole foods…but in reality, I just can’t do it. I try to get recommended organic food (especially meats, certain fruits, and dairy products) and my husband and I both think that checking ingredients is very important. If the ingredients are few and easy to pronounce, then we’re usually confident. Therefore, I have been getting a little weirded out by cream of ANYTHING soups.

Most of the recipes I use call for cream of chicken, and while popping open a can (an inexpensive one at that) can be so easy, I just wanted to see what my options were for cream of chicken substitutes. I found several recipes online, but decided to try Karly’s, of “Buns in my Oven”, because it looks quick and easy.
**Disclaimer** Her recipe claims it makes one can of soup, which should be about 8 oz, but in reality it made about half a cup.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Once it thickened and set up, it really looked just like cream of chicken soup from the can. I’ve used it in three different recipes, and haven’t been able to tell a difference. Ergo, I give this “recipe” 5/5 herbs!

  1. This looks ridiculously easy! I also try to stay away from odd sounding ingredients… I’ll have to give this one a try the next time I need a “cream of whatever” soup!

  2. I’ve been meaning to make my cream of whatever for awhile but never got around to it. Looks easy and a lot better for you than the canned stuff.
