    Not fast food. Good food, quickly.

    Just because you smell like a monkey after three days on trail doesn't mean you have to eat like one. Mountain House's Freeze Dried Rice and Chicken meal for one is light, easy to make, and best of all, tastes great. It comes in a foil package that stands up on its own for easy eatin' and cookin'.

    Almost as good as at home.

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    This is my new favorite right now. It's heavy on the rice... so if you are not a rice person, I would pass. I let mine sit about 15 minutes at 10500 ft or so. Everything came out perfect. The great thing about this meal is the flavor. I do not need any seasoning, straight outa the package.

    Surprisingly better than expected

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    This flavor never really drew me in for some reason, it really just is rice and chopped up chicken. I only just recently tried it, and I was pleasantly surprised.

    It tasted great, although a little hot sauce or pepper definitely helps. It is really easy to eat, and I don't get that almost sick feeling of being too full. This flavor is definitely great lunchtime fuel.

    As others have noted, this flavor definitely takes a little practice to get the water just right. You definitely don't want to use what the package recommends. I honestly don't measure the water, but it's probably only a cup and a quarter, it keeps the rice firm and tender without turning to mush.

    Pleasantly surprised

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Honestly I didn?t have very high expectations in terms of taste for this product but it surprised me. It tasted very good! I would defiantly take this out again!

    Try it first

      One of the most filling MH meals. Even better, mix in a pouch of regular chicken for a much better balance between the rice and chicken. I usually bring an even mix of this meal and MH Chicken & Mashed Potatoes, because I know how well I'll digest both. Speaking of that, I recommend people try a specific meal at home before taking it to the backcountry. Only you will know if it's appealing, and you don't want to be miles from an alternative when you find out it makes you retch.

      MH would do well to offer a Chicken & Rice entree. Keep this rice mix (with a little less salt), but instead of the sparse cubed chicken, include a chicken breast like the ones in the Chicken & Mashed Potatoes meal. I know this works, because I've combined the two meals myself, and it's a better meal than the stock Rice & Chicken.

      Oh dear

        I am a dyed in the wool Mountain House fan, but something went terribly awry here. If you plan on subjecting yourself to this ... entree, then add your water carefully. Also, be mindful of the two grams of sodium--it doesn't taste very good at all. I would advise another selection!

        This Dish Caused Us To Buy More!

          This is a great dish. I was amazed to see the size of the chicken pieces, since in most freeze dried food they are barely noticable. The flavor is awesome, similar to chicken Rice-a-Roni, except add REAL chicken and some veggies. This was the first dish we tried with Mountain House, which, in turn, resulted in us buying a large stock of several of their dishes for long term storage. As we test them all, we'll give a review and hopefully I'll remember to take pix. These are attractive meals as well. VERY FRESH TASTING!

          Mountaineering food

            This is one of the few entrees that always seems to make our short list when we're planning our meals. Nice flavor, simple, filling. It's chicken, it's rice, kind of a flavored broth (similar in taste to Top Ramen seasoning) mixed in that can be either served like a soup or as a thicker stew thing, depending on how much water you add. Works either way. It's one of those meals that's great for when you're at higher altitudes and don't feel like eating, but know you need to and should. Not over the top with spices, so it gives you some basic solid food, pretty good energy and flavor, but not so much that it messes with your stomach. Like all Mountain House food, high sodium, but not so much where you're tasting only salt. All in all, good stuff that's worth checking out.

            Good solo meal...

              I don't know why the others don't like this, it's really good for freeze dried food. If it's crunchy that just means you ate it too soon. Make sure you read the direction and stir it after you add the boiling water. I only use 12 oz. of water to make it a bit thicker rather then 14oz. It has always been tender from start to finish, just maybe a bit salty. The new larger size is great, really fills me up after a long day of hiking.

              Is there gluten and or wheat free meals?...

              Is there gluten and or wheat free meals? Does anyone know?
