Skip the canned condensed cream of chicken soup with questionable ingredients, and make your own instead! You can make a double or triple batch before the holidays so you have enough on hand.

Why You Need This Recipe

  • This recipe is both gluten-free and dairy-free which is really hard to find pre-made. For people with gluten or dairy allergies or sensitivities, it’s a better idea to just make your own.
  • Cream of chicken soup is a key component of so many recipes, such as my Dairy-Free Green Bean Casserole.
  • You can use higher quality ingredients when you make your homemade cream of chicken soup. No need for fillers or preservatives!

Key Ingredients

Chicken broth is a key component of this cream of chicken condensed soup recipe. Use organic chicken broth for a higher quality product.

Almond milk helps add creaminess with no dairy. You can use your favorite plant milk.

Gluten-free flour helps add body and thickness to the condensed soup. I recommend a gluten-free baking mix like Bob’s 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Baking Flour.

Olive oil replaces any butter or dairy in this recipe. You could also use vegan butter, if you prefer.
