Remember when condensed Cream of Chicken Soup was a good idea?

I think it started in the 50’s when convenience foods were all the rage. And even in my childhood, cream of soup was commonplace and even tasty. I loved the stuff.

But these days, you mention “cream of XYZ soup” and people scrunch up their face, silently mouth “yuck!” and immediately start passing judgement.

And I have to admit, the stuff tastes better in my memory than it does in real life (or “IRL” as the kids say).

So how do I share the joy that is Cream of Soup with my family? I make my own from scratch.

And before you roll your eyes and think to yourself that “you don’t have time” or “you don’t have the stuff,” let me just say it’s pretty easy.

We’re talking minutes. Common ingredients. Not even cream!

Ready to give it a shot?

This is really so simple you are going to laugh.

First, you simmer some chicken broth with spices. While that is rising to simmering temperature, whisk some flour into milk.

Once the simmering has commenced, add the milk + flour. Simmer for another minute or so until thickened.

Wow, that’s it?

Yes, that’s it.

No excuse never to use Cream of Chicken Soup from a can again.
