Making the DairyFree Cream of Chicken Soup Allergen Free

  • Dairy Free: I used dairy free cooking cream but if that is not available use any dairy free milk alternative.
  • Gluten Free: This recipe uses all purpose gluten free flour as a thickener. You can also use cornstarch to thicken the recipe if you are not allergic to corn.

Seasoning the Soup

You can add other spices in addition to the one listed in the ingredients that you love to the recipe to make it more flavourful. Add jalapenos or red chili powder to make it spicy or dairy free cheese for a cheesy flavor.

Type of Chicken

  • Shredded: Boil and shred the chicken, keep the stock to use in the recipe.
  • Store Bought: Use rotisserie chicken.

Soup Consistency

Depending on whether you use a dairy free cream or milk you might have to adjust the quantities of both the milk and gluten free flour to achieve the desired thickness. Use more flour with milk. The gluten free flour takes a little longer to thicken than regular flour.

Serving The Soup Two Ways

  • Chunky: Add your favorite vegetables such as carrots.
  • Smooth: For a smoother consistency, cool the soup a little and then place it in the blender and blend.

Storing the Leftover DairyFree Cream of Chicken Soup

  • This soup can be made ahead of time and stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
  • Let the soup cool completely before placing it in a freezer-safe container and freezing it.
  • Use as an alternative for the cream of chicken in recipes.
