Use this dry chicken-flavored casserole sauce mix to whip up any quantity of sauce whenever your recipe calls for cream of chicken soup. When cream of mushroom is needed, there is a beef-flavored version if you have pantry space to keep two containers of mix on hand.
This really has been a life saver for me on more than one occasion. It took a while before I completely let go of the canned soup stash in my pantry. Finally, when I was out of it and resorted to this powdered mix to whip up homemade soup. Then I decided it was the best route to use as my mainstay.
You can adjust the seasonings to your taste and use as much or as little of the sauce as you need for a customized recipe. A triple or quadruple batch can be thickened in the microwave for larger quantities of food for a party or large family event.
