Kitchen Tip Tuesday: Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup

I made my Easy Peasy Chops on Sunday, but as I was gathering the ingredients I noticed I was plum out of cream of chicken soup. Didn't I just stock up on that a few months ago? Uh oh! What was I going to do? Then I remember Crystal aka Money Saving Mom had mentioned a homemade recipe a while ago. She linked over to Tammy's page where the recipe is posted. I tweaked it a bit to suit my needs (ie. non-existent poultry seasoning -- oops!). It worked great and we didn't even miss the poultry seasoning! (You can use cream of mushroom soup for the chops, too!)

Cream of Chicken Soup Base
(Makes about 3 cups which would be about 2 cans of soup.)

1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt (or less; taste to test)
1/4 teaspoon parsley
dash of paprika
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 cup flour

In medium-sized saucepan, boil chicken broth, 1/2 cup of the milk, and the seasonings for a minute or two. In a large measuring cup (I used my 2 cup) whisk together the remaining 1 cup of milk and flour. Add to boiling mixture and stir until mixture boils and thickens.
