Homemade chicken cream soup mix

I first saw the recipe for making your own chicken soup mix over 10 years ago. I thought it was a good idea at the time, but I never managed to try it, until we were trying to find ways to ; save money on our grocery budget.

I can't believe how much the cream of chicken soup costs now. At Walmart, it's $ 1.00 a can! Lots of quick and easy pans require cream of chicken soup, so I was looking for a good alternative. I found a recipe and decided to try it. I can't believe I haven't tried it earlier.

Chicken Cream Soup Mix

2 cups non-fat dry milk powder
3/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup reduced-sodium instant chicken or beef broth granules *
1/2 tsp. dried thyme leaves
1/2 tsp. dried basil leaves
1/4 tsp. White pepper

There are many types of chicken broths that you can buy. Some of them contain MSG and other additives, and some do not. I use this chicken broth from Orrington Farms. It does not contain MSG and is GMO free.
