Ingredients & Variations

Cream of chicken soup is so versatile, why not get creative with what’s on hand in the pantry or fridge?

  • Use chicken breasts, thighs, or tenders in this recipe with great results. Try rubbing the chicken with seasonings or herbs before pouring on the soup for extra zing.
  • While we use cream of chicken soup in this recipe, any “cream of” soup will do! Try cream of mushroom, celery or cheddar cheese soup. You can also make your own cream of mushroom soup for a delicious homemade meal!

Easy Additions

There are so many yummy additions that can be made to this recipe!

Must-Try Tips

Since Creamy Chicken is so easy to make, why not double up on the recipe and save some for later?

  • Bake in a casserole dish lined with aluminum foil, leaving about 6” of foil overlapping the edges.
  • After it is cooled completely, wrap the chicken tightly in the aluminum foil and secure it in a zippered bag, labelled with the date on it.

Perfect for busy weeknights, just thaw and reheat!

  • Use the stovetop, microwave or oven to reheat this recipe. Simply add a little milk to the sauce to prevent it from drying out.
  • Refresh the flavors with a little salt and pepper, add some hot sauce or even sprinkle with a Panko crumb topping prior to reheating.

Make a separate batch and store in individual portioned containers for a grab-and-go lunch for work or school.
