when I run across a recipe I really want to make and am missing one measly ingredient. I don't like to run to the store for just one thing unless it's absolutely necessary and will often times put off making that particular recipe until I have all the necessary ingredients. Of course, with the power of the internet, a lot of times it is possible to find substitutions for various ingredients.
Today, while trying to make my potato casserole
, I realized I had cream of mushroom but not cream of chicken soup in the pantry. While this normally wouldn't even slow me down, one of our dinner guests is allergic to mushrooms. I had too much to do to bother going out for one can of soup, so I decided to do a quick search. I found this particular recipe plastered all over the place (if it was just in one place, I'd give them credit). Sadly, I had to do a substitution for one of the ingredients in this recipe as well, but it all turned out okay in the end. As a matter of fact, it turned out much better than okay. B said he liked it better than the typical can of cream soup. I have to agree, it was pretty darn tasty stuff!
This recipe makes about one can of soup.( Cream of Chicken Condensed SoupCollapse )
