Does anyone have a tried and true recipe

for cream of chicken soup (no, not Campbell's ). We go to a mom and pop restaurant in another town that only has it on Thursday nights. It's great, but would like to make my own so I don't have to drive 20 or 30 minutes for a cup of soup.
Thanks for any help.

This the cream soup base that I use for quite a variety of different soups like creamy vegetable, potato, broccoli & cheese, and chicken & dumplings.

* one box chicken stock
* one quart of half & half
* quarter cup of corn starch

I also add some celery seed, onion powder, salt, pepper, and garlic. I don't measure any of that. I just add and taste.

What's your guesstimate on how many your creamed soups would serve?

I make a white sauce for my potato soup. I cook the potatoes until done. In another large pan, I make the white sauce. When that is finished, I add the potatoes to the sauce.

How exactly do you put together your chicken and dumplings?

I use this (with nondairy milk) when a recipe calls for cream of anything soup so I can make it dairy free. I've never actually eaten it on it's own (nor have I eaten cream of chicken soup ever on it's own.)

I have no idea. By the time I add everything else, I end up filling a large oval crock pot.

I bring the base to a boil, add shredded chicken, and drop dough into the broth. Simmer covered for about 20 minutes. I make dough with Bisquick and milk.
