Give this homemade Cream of Chicken Soup recipe a try when you need a bowl of comfort, or when you’re looking for an alternative to canned condensed soup.
Whisk together chicken stock and cornstarch in a small saucepan over low heat.
While the stock is heating, stir in the salt, celery salt, onion powder, and garlic powder.
Drizzle in the heavy cream about one tablespoon at a time, about 1 tablespoon every 30 seconds). Whisk constantly.
Whisk slowly until the mixture comes to a very low boil (just a few bubbles). This is when the soup will start to thicken. Fold in the chicken.
Continue whisking and cooking until the mixture is as thick and creamy as you'd like it. Then remove from the heat.
Add the butter and mix until the butter is melted.
