Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup Recipe
Jill, I love Cream of Chicken soup. Could a person use your white sauce base for a homemade version of the soup I buy in a can???
You could use that or we have a Cream Soup Mix in our Dining on a Dime Cookbook that you could use, too. If you use the white sauce recipe just add the last 5 ingredients of the following recipe to the white sauce or make up this recipe from Dining on a Dime to keep on hand.
Cream Soup Mix
2 cups dry milk
1 1/4 cups cornstarch or 2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup chicken bouillon powder
2 Tbsp. dried onion flakes
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. thyme (optional)
1 tsp. basil (optional)
Mix all the ingredients and store in an airtight container. If the mix is made with cornstarch, add 1/3 cup mix to 1 1/4 cups water. If it is made with flour, add 1/2 cup mix to 1 1/4 cups water.
This makes concentrated casserole consistency. For soup consistency, double the water.
For cream of chicken soup use as is.
For cream of mushroom soup add one can of mushrooms.
