Homemade Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup. Really? Oh yes, seriously. This is amazing. It works as a replacement in all my favorite family recipes that called for cream of chicken soup.
I can't begin to tell you how many recipes that I have sitting in a notebook or a family cookbook that I just don't make any longer because I don't use the condensed cream of 'whatever' soups anymore. That whole label reading thing has really changed my perspective on so many items and this is one I choose to make at home.

Homemade Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
makes 6 cups (replaces 4 cans)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1½ cups flour, divided
3 cups half and half, room temperature
4 cups chicken broth, low sodium (divided)
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon parsley
½ teaspoon basil
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon black pepper
In medium sized saucepan, over medium heat, melt butter. Once butter is melted add ¾ cup flour. Whisk to create a paste. Cook for 2-3 minutes, whisking frequently. Add half and half, whisking as you pour. Whisk until completely combined.
Add 2 cups chicken broth and all spices. Whisk to combine and bring to a boil.
In a quart sized mason jar combine ¾ cup flour and 2 cups chicken broth. Seal tightly and shake the living tar out of your mixture. You will create a smooth flour mixture for thickening your sauce called a slurry.
Slowly pour slurry into soup, whisking constantly. Bring back to a boil and cook until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon and remove from heat.
Allow to come to room temperature if you are planning to freeze it. I like to freeze 12 ounce portions of this soup to replace the cans of soup called for in favorite easy recipes.
