Why Make Cream of Chicken Soup?

During the holidays and Winter months, I find myself constantly attracted to creamy, comfort food type dishes. Baked chicken over rice or noodles, casseroles, creamy soups, slow cooker recipes, etc.

The issue is, they usually all call for some amount of cream of chicken soup. And nothing grosses me out more that canned cream of chicken soup.

Have you ever peeked at the label of a can of cream of chicken soup? Its filled with suspicious ingredients. And the random chicken bits that float at the top of each can? Why?

Needless to say, I don’t cook with canned cream of anything soup. I make my own! It takes just a few minutes, is so much heathier for you and is ready and made entirely with ingredients that you probably already have on hand.
