One Chicken Soup Recipe To Rule All Chicken Soup Recipes

Why is this chicken soup so very excellent? Because it’s creamy! And a little bit dill-y! And, because it’s a TMP chicken soup recipe, it’s Parmesan-y and garlicky! Therefore, it’s extremely extra lovable. Chicken soup is great. We love it. We make it all the time in all of its various forms—classic with noodles, or coconut-y, or with rice, or with white beans—and we love it any which way it’s made. But this creamy chicken soup recipe is our current obsession. The added richness of the milk and butter are just too fantastic. In the colder months, we want things that feel like they’ll really stay with us—warm bowls of creamy, hearty soups we can wrap our cold hands around, bring to our frozen blue lips and sip deeply from to warm from the inside out. This soup hasn’t just been showing up on repeat, it’s on auto-play—it’s easy, comes together quickly and its belovedness is near-universal. Pair it with some crusty bread and hey—dinner’s done.

How Do You Add Richness to Chicken Soup?

That very question is how we ended up here, with this fabulously creamy chicken soup. We wanted to give our favorite soup a little punch-up, and so we turned to the classic, cream-ifying power of a roux! A roux is a classic technique for thickening soups and sauces, and simply refers to the use of fat and flour together—in this case, butter and flour! Whole milk adds plenty of creaminess, too, and voila! A lovely rich and creamy chicken soup.

Cream of Chicken Soup recipe

Growing up, I was “deprived” of canned soup. And such is the case when you’re a kid that you always want what you can’t have.

I got sent to school with bento boxes and eyed off my friends’ peanut butter sandwiches with jealousy. I looked forward to sleepovers, not only because of the excitement of staying at a friends’ place, but because I got to try food that my mother would never make.

Such as – soup from a can. I can’t believe how much I used to love that stuff!

(I also can’t believe that I used to be embarrassed being sent to school with bento boxes. It’s all the rage nowadays!)

At some point, I grew up, learned how to cook, found and made a homemade cream of chicken recipe.

And today, I shake my head, wondering how on earth I used to think canned soup was so delish.

Homemade cream of chicken soup is SO GOOD. If you like canned cream of chicken soup or those instant cup-a-soup packets, you are going to LOVE this!

“This cream of chicken soup recipe is very straight forward. Thick, creamy, and it tastes real. The canned stuff is no comparison!”

Homemade Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup

This recipe is an updated version of a recipe I posted way back when I started RecipeTin Eats. The previous recipe was written starting with a homemade condensed cream of chicken soup – thick and gloopy like Campbell’s soup in a can.

I went through a phase when I made homemade condensed soup which I would then keep for a few days then later use to make a soup or casserole. However, I found that I haven’t made condensed soup in years, mainly because it can only be kept for a few days so it kind of defeats the purpose of that recipe. But in case you want it, I’ve kept it – click here to get the recipe for the homemade Cream of Chicken Soup!

This is what it looks like. I told you – gloopy!!
