Homemade Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup

Instead of opening up a can of condensed soup, make this easy Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup with simple ingredients you probably already have on hand.

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.

And while it’s frowned upon to resort to “processed food” and “canned soups” these days, that’s not why I avoid them.

I avoid them because they don’t taste good.
