Cream of Chicken Soup

November 06, 2012


Well, Fall was nice, wasn't it?  It lasted here about a week.  Then, suddenly, it was winter-like cold. We were enjoying the outside with sweatshirts and then..boom! Winter coats and gloves?  Already?  Let's hope the snow stays away for a good long while.  Half my kids need boots this year and that is a task that I would like to avoid as long as possible. Oh..and snow pants..ugh!

Let's change the subject. Soup! With the weather getting colder and chillier, soup is always a nice dish to warm up you and your home.  I don't make alot of homemade soups.  We have always been strictly a Campbell's family the few times we eat it. But, canned soup is soooo high is sodium, this is much healthier.  And..much tastier.

This is a simple recipe you can easily make for a weeknight dinner with a side of crunchy bread and it can also be used for recipes that call for canned cream of chicken soup.

I will using this next time I make these:

{this recipe make equivalent to 2 cans of condensed soup}
