How to make it dairy-free:

This recipe is perfect for a dairy-free version of cream of chicken soup, which is near impossible to find in stores.
Nothing extra is needed, you’ll simply use the non-dairy versions of the ingredients! Here’s a list of non-dairy staples I always have on hand so I can easily throw together dairy-free recipes like this.

  • Butter- use a non-dairy or plant based butter. I use Country Crock! Sticks and the tub spread both work for this recipe.
  • Milk- use whatever non-dairy milk you prefer. I always keep almond milk in our fridge so that’s what I use for this recipe!

If you’re not using it right away, you can store this in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. You can also store portions in a ziploc freezer bag and freeze it for 3-4 months.

This recipe is so fast and easy, I hope you’ll give it a try! Pin it for later and let me know what you think!
