Canned Soup

Some people use lots of canned soup in their food storage. Other people think it’s the devil. If you do use canned soup then this easy method for making creamed chicken will appeal to you. If you don’t stock canned soup, then you can try my recipe for Creamed Chicken or Turkey, From Scratch instead.

Ultra Easy Creamed Chicken or Turkey


  • 10 ounce can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 12 ounce can of chicken or turkey, undrained
  • 1/2 cup instant nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • Dash Black Pepper


Open up the soup and scrape it into a 2-quart saucepan. Open the chicken or turkey and drain the juice into the pan of soup. Add the powdered milk. Stir until smooth. A whisk helps you accomplish this quickly. Heat the sauce over a medium flame. Using your fingers or a fork pull the chicken into small bits. Add this to the sauce. Simmer for a few minutes to heat thoroughly. Stir often to prevent sticking. Serve over mashed potatoes.

If desired you may add a well drained can of mushrooms or a small can of drained peas or peas and carrots. Makes 4-large servings.


Easy Turkey Spam in Gravy: Replace the chicken or turkey in the above recipe with a 12-ounce can of Turkey SPAM. Slice the meat thinly then stack the slices and cut them into thin slivers. Add 1/2-cup water to the soup to thin it into gravy. Then add the chopped SPAM and remaining ingredients (dry milk and seasonings). Simmer as directed and spoon over potatoes.
