Substitution For Canned Soup

Substitution For Canned Soup

If you don’t like using canned soup, I get it. There are tons of recipes on the internet for making homemade condensed soup. You can use that instead. Just less convenient.

Equipment Needed

A 6 to 8-quart Pressure Cooker. I use the Instant Pot 6-Quart 9 in 1 Pressure Cooker.

Recipe Tips

Be sure to add the ingredients to the Instant Pot in the order listed to prevent getting a burn signal.

If the stuffing is dry, you can add more chicken broth.


Condensed Cream of Celery or Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup can be used instead of Condensed Cream of Chicken.

You can use any flavor of Stovetop Stuffing.

The cheese can be left out or substituted with mozzarella or swiss cheese.
