What ingredients are in gluten-free cream of chicken soup?
This simple recipe requires few ingredients. Since we want the flavors to shine we use high quality milk like a2 brand.
How do you make easy gluten-free cream of chicken soup?
Making this soup could not be more simple. You start by melting the butter in the chicken stock over medium heat.
Next, you mix up your milk and cornstarch with a whisk. Add in the herbs and salts here as well.
Pro Tip: Be sure to mix the cornstarch entirely into the milk so there are no clumps. I like to do a good scrape on the bottom to make sure none got stuck there. Then, once the broth and butter are boiling, you will slowly pour in the milk, cornstarch and herb mixture to thicken the soup and add flavor.
Pro Tip: Don’t forget to constantly whisk the soup as you pour in the milk and cornstarch mixture to avoid clumps.
How many cans of soup does this recipe make and does it freeze well?
This recipe makes 32 oz. which ends up being just over three cans of traditional 10 oz. cream of chicken soup.
Yes, you can absolutely freeze it! Just portion it out into snack sized ziplocks or small canning jars and pull them out whenever you need them.
Which canned soups are gluten-free?
There really aren’t too many store bought varieties of cream soups that are gluten-free. However, there are quite a few soups that are. We put together a whole list of gluten-free Progresso soups for you guys.
Although, I can tell you that Campbell’s cream of chicken soup is NOT gluten-free.
Can you make dairy-free cream of chicken soup?
Yes, you can use a dairy-free alternative milk for this recipe. However, it digesting lactose is an issue for you, I do recommend a2 milk.
A2 milk doesn’t have the A1 protein found in most other cows milk. The removal of this often makes it easier to digest as well.
The a2 Milk Company uses comprehensive her selection to choose cows that done produce A1 protein. The milk comes from local, family owned and sustainably owned US farms where cows are not treated with growth hormones rBST or antibiotics are used.
You can get a2 milk in four varieties including whole, reduced fat, chocolate and low-fat.
Can I use something different than cornstarch to thicken it?
While cornstarch is recommended thicken this soup, you could also use a high quality gluten-free cup for cup flour, arrowroot, tapioca or potato starch. I wouldn’t recommend coconut or almond flour as this will not thicken your soup.
If you don’t mind making this non-gluten-free, Pinch of Yum has a fun and easy take using traditional flour.
