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.

This is better sweet and sour chicken than I've had in many Chinese restaurants. No cloying sweetness, instead, there are peppery bites, a good amount of chicken and the rice was cooked better than a rice cooker could do it. That was an engineering marvel in itself in my opinion. If there were a fault with this, it would be that the pineapple didn't hydrate as perfectly as everything else. It was slightly crystalized and chewy but still imparted good flavor. Overall, I'd count on this as a staple in my kitchen for a Chinese food craving instead of ordering takeout! I can only imagine how awesome it would taste after hiking all day.

I would eat this breakfast regularly in my house frankly. The granola was quality oats in right-sized clumps. Loved the almond and vanilla flavors that were forefront in every bit. Milk mixed up nicely without residual clumps. My only complaint, which isn't really a complaint, is that the blueberries were definitely lacking in flavor. The only time I could taste them at all was when I picked them out individually with my spoon and ate them alone--which delivered a fairly concentrated flavor at the end. My husband and I shared the bag and both were filled and satisfied.
