Bon Appetit

This is definitely a solid entry in the arena of camp food. It rehydrated well and had great flavor and texture. I would definitely buy this again!

Loved it

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

My husband ate this on a recent backpacking trip and let me have a taste. It was so tasty!! I’m a vegetarian and I almost feel like this meal could convert me. He loved it too. Will definitely buy again!

Better than expected

I've used it several times

Had low expectations for this since it's hard to get decent risotto at an expensive restaurant, but I was curious. Thought this was decent and it was definitely enough for my gf and I. Make sure to wait long enough and really mix it well to avoid uncooked rice in every bite.

Not risotto but good chicken and rice!

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.

More than chicken and rice.

Most of the camp food that I have had is just chicken in rice with some sauce. This is definitely more. It was nice to have something with some cheese and veggies on my last trip. As far as dehydrated meals go this one makes the good list. I'd get it again.


Simple and good

A tasty meal but not a spicy one. Add less than the recommended amount of water unless you like it soupy. (High Uintas Wilderness)
