Rated 3 out of 5 by from A+ on mashed potatoes / C- on chicken texture We just spent a week out at Mueller SP, CO tent camping (IE no fridge), so we stocked up on a lot of these dehydrated camp food packets. Mueller SP is situated at around 9,500 feet elevation so cook times are a bit longer. My wife and I loved the flavor of this meal. For this meal, we prepared it in accordance with the additionally cook time (due to increased elevation). Analysis: The mashed potatoes were PHENOMENAL! The flavor and texture were great. The chicken patty flavor was OK but the texture was different; we cooked the meal just as the instructions directed, but for some reason the patty texture ended up dry and was difficult to chew. Recommendation: I would probably buy this meal again but would cook the chicken differently by hydrating it more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wasn't sure what to expect I wasn't sure what to expect when it said "chicken breast with rib meat". The very pleasant surprise was the fact that it was actually two full chicken breasts. After removing the mash potato packet, you add 1 1/2 cups of boiling water and let it sit for 2-3 minutes. Then with the chicken still in the pouch, I poured in the mash potatoes. 2-3 minutes later, you have your meal. I thought the flavor was great. The mash potatoes had more flavor that I would have expected, plus combined with the chicken really made a appreciable meal after a days long hike. The only challenge, was assuming you are trying to not dirty a plate, it does take a little finagling to cut the chicken up, while inside the package.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but a little lacking Picked up several new entrees on sale at REI to try. This one sounded good, and Backpacker's Pantry Mashed Potatoes and Beef is one of my favoties. I found the cooking of the chicken "breasts" separate from the mashed potatoes a little annoying. The texture and taste of the chicken was good, but I was not a fan of the seasoning for the mashed potatoes. I should have added some Butter Buds...that would have helped. But this is really splitting hairs. Mountain House quality is always good, and I wouldn't think twice about including these on a trip (as long as I pack some Butter Buds).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite hiking meal This is easily my favorite meal when hiking. When I get above 10,000 feet my appetite vanishes (seriously, I could barely eat half a Pop Tart during my Mt. Whitney climb) and it becomes difficult to find anything that doesn't gross me out. THIS meal is perfect. It's tasty and easy to prepare and doesn't upset my system when I'm in upper elevations. It's also almost always sold out at the Santa Monica REI so I'm just gonna stock up via online ordering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All It Needs is Some Sauce One of my first meals of this kind. I wanted to save some weight and bought a few of these meals instead of lugging around canned food. I was amazed at how good this was. Between boiling the water and the wait time I was chowing down in 15 minutes. The meal fills you up, is very satisfying, and packs plenty of fuel. The package says its a meal for 2 but I don't know who eats that little, and was able to finish it all off myself no problem. The only 2 draw backs, if you could call them that, are there is no sauce for the chicken, and unlike some others I had you can't really eat this out of the pouch so have a dish handy. This package and the vegetable lasagna are now my go to meals when out on the trail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freeze Dried 101 This is the meal I use to introduce friends to freeze dried meals. Starts off like a dried out sponge. Reconstitutes to real chicken breasts. The flavor is good, chicken is normally bland unless you add spice, I like the fact I can spice it the way I want. Dried spices are light and easy to pack. you can take 6 of these and have a different style every night. A little Jamaican Jerk seasoning, some Lowery's, some Cajun Seasoning all go well with this. Definitely my favorite dried food, and I have had quite a few. One hint, use the recommended amount of water, then squeeze the bag until the chicken is covered then seal, this is the best way to make sure all the chicken cooks without making the potatoes too mushy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Meal I had this about a year ago and it was one of my most favorite meals. When they say two chicken breasts they mean JUST THAT. One pouch was enough to feed me and my buddy after a day of strenuous backpacking. We each had a no kidding restaurant sized chicken breast each and plenty of side each. I slept well that night and it tasted GREAT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ample portion First time with MH products. The chicken breast & mashed potatoes was an excellent meal that I shared with my wife. We both agreed that it was easy to prepare and more than enough for each of us. Both the chicken and the mashed potatoes were flavorful with consistent texture and quality. Hard to believe that this was actually a freeze dried product. I really wish that this was optionally available as a pro-pak.
