I doubled this and it worked out to 13 ziplock baggies with 1/3 cup of mix each. The only thing I did differently is I omitted the chicken bouillon granules at first, and then added 1/2 tsp to each bag after separated. I only did this to further cut down on sodium. I made up a serving today for a casserole and it tasted great! Thanks for such a great and healthy alternative!

This worked out beautifully for me. So glad I finally tried it. However, for our family's own preferences, I won't be adding the thyme to future batches. Not that I didn't like the flavor, just that the thyme didn't really go well with the Asian flavor of the dish I was making. Think I'll leave it out and add to separate dishes as needed. Thanks so much.

This was awesome! I was halfway into making dinner when I realized the can of cream of chicken soup I thought was in the pantry had been used. Zaar saved me a trip to the store. It worked absolutely great. The only thing I will probably change next time is they thyme because I discovered my family doesn't particularly care for it. I will definitely be using this instead of the expensive & unhealthy canned versions.
