Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 pinch dried parsley
  • 1 pinch paprika
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Instructions

  • In a 1 1/2-quart saucepan combine broth, onion powder, garlic powder, poultry seasoning, parsley, paprika, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Bring to a simmer.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together milk and flour until smooth. Pour into saucepan, whisking continuously, until the mixture bubbles and thickens, about 1 minute.

Notes

  1. Chicken broth: Homemade chicken broth or your favorite store-bought brand.
  2. Poultry seasoning: Make it yourself with sage, thyme, rosemary, marjoram, and a little bit of nutmeg or substitute store-bought.
  3. To use in a recipe: Use the full in your recipes exactly as you would use canned condensed soup.
  4. To eat as a soup: Add 1 cup chicken broth or water and heat until piping hot. You'll have 2 (1-cup) servings.
  5. Freezing: Let the soup cool completely, then portion it out into freezer-safe containers. Leave about an inch at the top for expansion. When you thaw it out, give it a good whisk to blend everything up again.
  6. Canning: Unfortunately, this recipe isn't a good candidate for home canning. But it freezes well, which is the next best thing.
