Cream of Chicken soup substitute

Anthony Nicometi Jr


Yesterday I went to make my sisters Country Potato Casserole. And found I was fresh out...Just my luck right? So I figured I was like any cream soup right? So here's what I came up with! It's alot less salty than most brands...which I think is better. And will work in a pinch incase you're out of stock!

Get it? Stock...Like Chicken stock? ;)
