What Can I Substitute for Condensed Chicken Soup?

Good Questions

Q: I have a number of recipes (many passed down from my mother) that rely on a can of condensed chicken soup, but the last time I picked up a can, I checked the label and YIKES! The ingredient list was huge and included all sorts of things I couldn't pronounce.

Heard of a homemade version of this or know of a workable substitute?

Editor: Kate, yes — it is very easy and simple to substitute something homemade for a can of soup. In this case, try our quick recipe for cream of chicken soup:

D.I.Y. Cream of Chicken Condensed Soup

It's basically just a white sauce made with chicken broth — easy and very, very quick!

Readers, any other advice for Kate?
