About this recipe: The best thing about making homemade cream of chicken soup is that you can control the amount of salt that goes into it!


Serves: 4 

  • 2 tablespoons butter or oil
  • 1 tablespoon plain flour
  • 1 litre semi-skimmed milk
  • 1 teaspoon sugar (optional)
  • 300g leftover chopped roast chicken
  • pinch salt
  • black pepper
  • garlic powder

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Heat oil or butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and stir well to form a paste, or roux. Then, gradually stir in the milk and continue stirring until thickened.
  2. Add cooked chicken to white sauce mixture. Add sugar, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Mix well and simmer for 20 minutes over low heat.


If the soup is not as thick as you'd like, mix a small amount of cornflour with a small amount of water and add to soup. Simmer for 10 minutes.
