Homemade Thick Chicken White Sauce – Cream Of Soup Substitute

  • 3 Tbsp butter or margarine
  • 4 Tbsp all purpose flour
  • dash salt
  • 1 cup chicken broth

Put medium sauce pan over low heat and add butter.
Sprinkle in flour and salt while whisking; continue whisking for 1 minute.
Continue whisking while pouring in all chicken broth.
Whisk constantly while cooking until sauce gets thick and bubbly.

Use in any recipe that calls for a “cream of” soup or to make thick sauces of any type.  This sauce is thick, like “cream of” soups.

Other ideas:
Stir in shredded cheese for a thick cheese sauce for Macaroni and Cheese dish.

You can substitute milk for the chicken broth for a traditional thick white sauce.

    This is how I make my sauce for a substitute for the nasty “cream of” soup in a can. It works very well and I know what is in my food.

    Yay! I have been wondering what I could do to make something homemade to replace the cream soup out of the can. Have you ever done mushroom? I am also wondering if it would keep in the fridge or is it something that you should do right before you use it?
    Thanks! :)

    Is there an easy way to make cream of mushroom soup in a similar manner. And can you save it for quick use…you know those times when you have about 5-10 minutes to throw a meal together in a pan or slow cooker? Does it freeze well? Or is there a simpler method I’m not thinking of? Thanks!
