Gluten free cream of chicken soup

Our family has been slowly incorporating gluten free recipes into our menu plan. One thing I have really missed is the rich and creamy soups and casseroles that use cream of chicken as a base. There is just something about cream of chicken and what it adds to a casserole.

I found the solution when I made this gluten free substitute for cream of chicken soup. It is absolutely wonderful and even my gluten loving family could not tell the difference! This soup is seriously that good!

I think you are really going to love it! It is a delicious alternative to use in any recipe that calls for cream of chicken soup such as green bean casserole.

This recipe comes together so quickly and it’s much cheaper than what you can buy in stores. It’s creamy and the consistency is thick and perfect! You will enjoy cooking with this and using gluten free substitute for cream of chicken soup in casseroles, soups and more!

It’s totally optional but I like to use a little poultry seasoning in the recipe. It really enhances the flavor.

How to make gluten free cream of chicken soup from scratch:

1. First, mix together the chicken broth, milk, and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Keep whisking until the cornstarch is dissolved and everything is well combined.

2. Second, add the seasonings and mix everything together.

3. Next, cook the mixture over medium heat. Keep stirring constantly until the mixture is bubbling. This takes about about 3- 5 minutes.

How to store:

The mixture needs to be stored in the fridge. I like to use a mason jar but any air tight container will work.

It will keep up to a week. If you want to extend its shelf life, you will need to freeze it.

How to freeze:

Allow the soup mixture to freeze completely and pour into freezer containers. Make sure to allow an inch or so at the top to allow for expansion. Also, I like to freeze it in portions that I normally use in recipes. It just makes it easier when it is time to use. You don’t have to do this but it sure make sit easier.

It is also really important to make sure it is completely cool before freezing.

When you are ready to use this, let it thaw and whisk it together so it is smooth.

I like to keep some of this in the freezer. It makes it so easy when I am making casseroles and such. It does not take much more time to freeze but the amount of time you will save later is worth it.

    I have an almost identical recipe to this that suggests adding mushrooms for cream of mushroom, celery that you have sauteed in a little butter with a dash of celery seed for cream of celery.
