  1. Place 1 tablespoon of chicken stock in a saucepan over medium-low heat, and cook and stir the onion and garlic in the broth until they are softened, about 3 minutes. Pour in the rest of the broth and 1/2 cup of milk, and whisk in the salt, black pepper, parsley, lemon pepper seasoning, allspice, and paprika. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat, and allow to simmer for 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Whisk together the remaining milk and the flour until smooth, and whisk the milk mixture into the hot stock mixture. Keep whisking continuously to avoid lumps until the soup comes almost to a boil and thickens.


  • Cook's Note
  • For best flavor, mix the pan drippings from a roasted chicken into enough chicken stock to equal 1 1/2 cups and continue with the recipe as directed.

I followed this (except for the spices because I was out) and it turned out really well. Perfect in my recipe for Chicken Vol au Vent. It did thicken up really quickly and I had to add more milk...

This is a really tasty recipe for condensed cream of chicken soup. We have to cook gluten free in our home, so a simple switch of flour and we have a gluten free soup base for many of my casser...

this worked perfectly for a crock pot recipe i had - no one could tell the difference at all! great idea, thanks!

Okay, don't get mad folks (or submitter) but this is backwards on technique. A flour/butter roux should be made first and then slowly adding liquids. Yes, with recipe amount of flour it will be ...

@erimess - the directions clearly state that you are to make a slurry with the flour and remainder of COLD milk. I think you didn't follow the recipe correctly, and because of that your review i...

I made this gluten free w/Bob's Red Mill all purpose flour and added some garlic salt to it to bring up the flavor. It doesn't need the lemon pepper seasoning. It can easily be made into cream...
