Cream of Chicken Soup Mix Recipe:
1 cup non-fat dried milk powder
3/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup bouillon granules (if using cubes, crush into powder)
4 Tablespoons dried minced onion
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon parsley
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
Combine all ingredients in an airtight container, such as a Mason jar. Keep in your pantry until ready to use.
To use, mix 1/3 cup of the soup mix with 1 1/4 cup water. Cook until thickened.
For extra creamy, use half & half instead of the water and stir in 1 tablespoon butter after you’ve thickened it.
*You can do this in the microwave. Whisk water and mix into a glass mixing bowl or large Pyrex measuring cup. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, whisking every 30 – 45 seconds or until it’s thickened.
Try different flavors by switching the chicken bouillon for beef or other flavors.
