Gluten Free Cream of Chicken Soup

While Progresso makes a creamy gluten free mushroom soup, they do not make a gluten free cream of chicken soup. With that said and a recent request from a Facebook follower, I thought you would appreciate this recipe. Make it super rich using cream, dairy-free with your choice of milk, or with any fat content of cow’s milk. Enjoy!

  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 3 1/2 cups gluten free chicken broth (or stock homemade stock)
  • 3 1/2 cups whole milk, (or heavy cream, or dairy-free milk), divided

  • 1/16 teaspoon paprika
  • 3/4 cup white or brown rice flour


  1. In large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
  2. Add onion and saute until tender, about 6 minutes.
  3. While onions are cooking, heat milk and broth in a separate sauce pan just until hot. Do not allow it to boil.
  4. Add garlic, parsley, thyme, bay leaf, salt, pepper and paprika and saute until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  5. Add flour and stir until combined.
  6. Increase heat to medium-high, slowly pour in the milk and broth mixture, whisk constantly, and cook until thick, about 5 minutes.
  7. Using an immersion/handheld blender, puree until creamy or allow to cool slightly and puree in a stand blender in batches.

Dairy-free milk may need additional flour, depending upon your thickness preference.

For recipes calling for condensed gluten free cream of chicken soup, use less milk or cream.
