Also, instead of using cream soups, I make my own sauce with a little flour-or corn starch, and chicken broth. You can mix the flour or corn starch with a little non fat/low fat milk before adding it to the hot broth. It turns out creamy and thickens it without all the sodium of the soup, even the lower sodium varieties. I use lots of garlic, and thyme for flavor.

This old fashioned recipe will warm you on those cold winter days. My family loves this cozy recipe. The mixture will look like it has a lot of liquid, but the biscuits will soak that up to make delicious dumplings.
