Yield: 3 cups
Prep Time: 20 minutes
- 1 1/2 cups chicken stock divided
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 clove garlic finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon finely chopped onions
- 1 3/4 cups milk divided
- 1 teaspoon butter
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
Place 2 tablespoons of chicken stock in a medium saucepan. Over medium-low heat, cook and stir onion and garlic powders, garlic clove, and chopped onion into the stock. Cook until onion and garlic are soft, about 5 minutes. Pour in remaining stock and ¾ cup of the milk. Add butter and whisk in salt and pepper. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 1 to 2 minutes.
Whisk together remaining 1 cup milk and flour until smooth, then whisk this milk and flour mixture into the hot stock mixture. Whisk continuously to avoid lumps – until soup comes almost to a boil and thickens. Use thick for casseroles. For soup, thin with equal parts milk and chicken stock.
