That’s right. I know most people equate condensed soups with casseroles and the like. But if you ask me, it doesn’t get much better than a good bowl of comforting cream of chicken soup. Especially when it’s made from a homemade condensed cream of chicken soup recipe, and not the ol’ can full of…well…not much cream or chicken.
So for any of you out there who love a good bowl of cream of chicken soup (or for any of you who unabashedly used to love the stuff from the can), you’d better check out this modern take on a retro classic.
Once you have your condensed soup ready to go, this homemade cream of chicken soup is SO easy! If you want, you can just whisk together equal parts of the condensed soup and milk and heat until simmering. But I couldn’t resist adding in some extra veggies and chicken. It was so easy — just saute some onion, carrots and celery in a saucepan until soft. Then add in the condensed cream of chicken soup and milk, whisk to combine, and bring to a simmer.
I guess that was the whole idea behind condensed soups to begin with. ;)
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add carrot, celery and onion and saute for 5 minutes until soft, stirring occasionally. Add in condensed cream of chicken soup and milk, and whisk until combined. Bring soup to a simmer, then remove from heat. Serve warm.
So simple, so easy and so healthy…I am all about this recipe!
And I love these photos, they really mirror the simplicity of the recipe!
I had a feeling there was going to be soup after yesterdays post. This looks so cozy and delicious. My family would love it!
Hello bowl of winter comfort, nice to meet you.
You are taking processed foods to town girl! Keep it up :)
These last two posts together have been great. This soup looks like the perfect meal to get me through these last few weeks of winter! :)
I don’t normally like cream based soups but I am confident I would LOVE this!!!!
Such a simple and healthy dish! One of my all time faves! Pinned!

Ha!!! That’s actually coming on Friday! :D
This soup looks so amazing! I’m pinning it to add to our dinner menu ASAP!
I made this soup for dinner tonight and everyone loved it! The condensed cream of chicken soup was easier to make than I thought it would be – really takes no time at all – and it makes all the difference! Tastes amazing! Thank you!

Literally stumbled upon your website today- and I have fallen in love! I started with the condensed cream of chicken and then made the cream of chicken soup. Seriously AMAZING!! One question– can the cream of chicken soup be frozen? If I make a large batch of it, I will want to freeze some. Now I’m on to batch #2 of the condensed cream of chicken!! :-) Thank you!!
Unfortunately, no, the cream of chicken soup doesn’t freeze well. But you can refrigerate it for up to 3 days! Hope that helps! :)
I used this to make chicken and noodles last week. I was snowed in and ran out of cream of chicken soup. I honestly can’t cook very well and fully expected this to be a disaster, but it was so easy! I had everything I needed for it on hand and it took no time to make. I can’t wait to try the cream of mushroom!
Thanks for sharing with us, Steph — we’re so glad this worked out well for you and that you enjoyed it!
If a recipe calls for 2 – 14oz. cans of cream of chicken soup, how many batches should I make?
Can this soup be canned? It’s just for me because everyone is on this diet or that diet. I’m 71 and don’t do diets. So I’d love to can this for myself.
