The other day I was about to make Stuffed Pork Chops and I realized I didn’t have any condensed cream of chicken soup, which I usually like to keep in the pantry. I was annoyed. The pork chops were already thawed and I was really craving that meal. Then it occurred to me, why can’t I just make the cream of chicken soup?

It turns out, I can. I found this recipe from Tammy’s Recipes. I won’t reprint it here as she deserves the credit. I made it exactly as the recipe suggested and it was perfect! The recipe yields 2 cans worth of condensed soup so I froze the other ‘can’ for use the next time a recipe calls for it.

It was cinchy to make (5 minutes) and, of course, was way better for my family as it lacked all those weird ingredients I can’t pronounce. I’m going to make a double-batch of it and freeze 4 more cans.

Give this recipe a try and tell me what you think!

*If you try the Stuffed Pork Chops that I linked to then I suggest these modifications: Add shredded apple, sage and thyme to the stuffing. Saute the onion and celery in the butter. Combine soup with milk instead of water and pour in bottom of pan, not over top.

Why I do what I do ~ I convinced my daughter to try the above meal by telling her that it was chicken. Too deceitful?Have you liked Domestic Cents on Facebook yet?
