Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup

Have you ever thought about making your own Homemade Condensed Cream Soups from scratch. It only takes about 10 minutes with ingredients you probably have in your pantry.
I would make a double or even a triple batch to divide and freeze for later use. It is so quick and easy to make right on your stove.
