This is a recipe for making your own homemade cream of chicken soup. Only few ingredients but soo flavorful and delicious. Don’t let the short ingredient list fool you.
Once you make it yourself you will never be able to go back to the canned stuff. Homemade soup is just incomparably better. Just under 25 minutes you will have a hearty tasty soup without any additives or preservatives that you can enjoy guilt free. Canned soups are also very high in sodium. So by cooking it at home you can control the amounts of salt that goes in it.
This soup is made with bits of chicken and vegetables, chicken broth and seasonings all cooked in milk. Simple, readily available year-round ingredients that can be found at any grocery store.
Onions, bell peppers, garlic, celery all sautéed in cooking oil creating a Soffrito. An aromatic vegetable mixture that is wildly used as a foundation for soups and stews. Butter and flour make up for the roux, our thickening agent. I also love the delicate fragrance of dried thyme. Just a touch really deepens the flavor of the soup.
Cream of chicken soup is commonly used as a base for various sauces or chicken or rice casserole dishes. But this recipe is a definition for a comfort soup that has creamy smooth delicate texture and irresistible savory taste. It is utterly enjoyable on its own.
There is something so special about the soul warming effects of a freshly made steaming hot bowl of homemade soup.
