Make your own cream of chicken soup! It is perfect if you find yourself needing some and you don’t have any cans in the pantry or if you are trying to avoid cans altogether.

Bowl of thick and creamy cream of chicken soup.

I had to make a few adjustments to this one to fit what I had on hand.  But, this could be really handy going forward.  

I am not usually somebody who plans nightly meals too far in advance, so it will be nice to still have cream of chicken as an option even if there aren’t any cans in the pantry!  Plus this way you have some control over what the end product is.
