I also love how I can substitute my Cream of Chicken Soup Recipe for any recipe that calls for cream of mushroom soup or cream of celery soup. An equal substitution of our Cream of Chicken Recipe will keep the same texture as cream of celery or cream of mushroom. You can use it in casseroles or soups.

One of my favorite recipes that I’ve substituted a can of cream of chicken soup for my homemade version is one of my families favorite, Easy Lemon Chicken Piccata Casserole.

There’s often been times when my cans have run low and I need to make a quick fix and this is just it.

Substitute For Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup

It’s helpful to know the quantity needed when it comes time to use your homemade condensed cream of chicken soup.  You will need use 1 1/3 cup in place of one 10.75 oz can of cream of chicken soup.

Can Homemade Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup Be Frozen?

It’s good to know that cream of chicken soup can be frozen.  To freeze cream of chicken soup just make sure it’s in an airtight container.  I like to have my soup measured out in 1 1/2 cups portions and freeze in Ziploc freezer bags.  Creamed soups can separate when thawed, but it shouldn’t be a problem if you mix it well while reheating.
