I will tell you that there are many, many versions of cream soup recipes on the internet, ranging from the super fancy to the super frugal. My version is definitely on the super frugal side. But if works for me. Besides, I do not just eat cream soup on its own, I only use it as a binder for things like casseroles.
Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup milk
1. Melt butter in sauce pan. Sprinkle flour over butter and quickly whisk in. Let cook for a minute to get rid of flour taste.
2. Add in liquids and quickly whisk to eliminate clumps. Add seasonings to taste.
3. Bring to a boil while whisking fairly often. Lower heat a little and continue to stir while it simmers. Liquid will thicken and reduce. You will be left with a thick sauce after just a few minutes.
