Heatherwrote a review of Backpacker's Pantry Risotto with Chicken on March 10, 2013
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Not as creamy as any risotto I've ever had but a high-quality chicken and rice dish for certain. The chunks of chicken were hearty with a good selection of vegetables to brighten the dish. The parmesan cheese was a nice addition that adds another dimension of flavor. I did make a mistake on this one and didn't stir everything up well enough. That resulted in chunks of rice that weren't rehydrated well enough but the lesson here is simply to stir well. User error on my part. Overall, this was filling and satisfying, I just wouldn?t call it risotto.
