Gluten Free Cream of Chicken Soup

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Tbs. butter or margarine
  • 2 Tbs. cornstarch
  • 1 cube chicken bullion (gluten-free!)
  • 1/4 tsp. ground pepper
  1. Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
  3. Boil and stir 1 minute.

Tips and Suggestions for Gluten Free Cream of Chicken Soup:

  • Do NOT stop stirring- Cornstarch moves fast when it decides to thicken. If you leave it to it's own devices you will end up with some sticky globs surrounded by a thin liquid. This is not happy food!
  • This recipe will work with any type of bullion. You can have cream of anything you want!
  • Try adding garlic, herbs or other spices to create new flavors.

    just to clarify… It’s 2 tablespoons of corn starch. I tried it both ways and 2 teaspoons isn’t quite enough. I also add a dash of poultry seasoning to mine. And a dash of celery salt if I have it

    I made this to use in a gluten-free chicken pasta casserole for my daughter. I made another “regular” casserole for the rest of the family using canned cream of chicken soup. We all tasted Sara’s dinner and agreed that hers was so much better. I won’t be buying canned cream soups anymore :)

    How do you store it?

    I’m assuming this the same thing as condensed cream of chicken soup?

    This was the best!!!! I have wanted scalloped potatoes for so long but could not use the soup to make them my usual way. I made this soup and then made the potatoes with it and my husband who rarely eats scalloped potatoes ate seconds!! Delicious. Thanks you
