Sandra Lee has made a living sharing recipes that are “Semi-Homemade.” This means you don’t have to start from scratch to come up with something that tastes like it’s homemade! Box cake mixes are really versatile and useful. Some of them are really better that the consistency of a cake made from scratch!

Chicken and Rice Soup:
In a saucepan mix a can of Cream of Chicken soup

If you have cooked chicken from a Rotisserie chicken or leftovers from another meal, you can add that too, if desired. Heat until hot.
