Rated 5 out of 5 by from This tasted like it was Homemade I took this out on a recent Day Hike for lunch and much to my surprise this is one of the best backpacking meals I have ever eaten and I have eaten quite a few. This is coming from some one who likes to cook and eats these daily a couple months out of the year so this is a true recommendation. It takes and extra 2-3 min of cooking to get the risotto tender, but wow was I surprised. That is the only issue with this meal.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute worst meal i have tried, way to much salt The amount of salt ruined this meal. After a 10 mile day, I was ready to relax and have a decent dinner. I was really excited to try this meal and had high hopes for it. The day before I ate an Italian pepper steak and it was delicious by mountain house. To my utter shock, this became the first meal I was just unable to eat. I had 3 maybe 4 spoons and was done. Lucky for me my friend brought dessert to share and that saved me. Otherwise, I would have just went hungry. She tried this meal too and neither of us will ever buy this one again. Be warned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of our favorite meals During week-long adventures we experiment with different dinner-time meals. Many other meals required additional flavoring or more protein. Risotto w/ Chicken required no additives. The chicken did not have the typical cardboard taste as found in other dinners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than Homemade Maybe it was the altitude, or the intense backpacking trek to our destination, but this pouch of food was heaven. My boyfriend and I devoured every creamy, flavorful bite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy cow, we love this stuff!! Absolutely our favorite meal on the trail. Good mix of rice, chicken and veggies. My 10 yr old and 7 yr old would happily eat this at home!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from it's a salt-bomb Just had this on a four-day trip in the Indian Heaven Wilderness - not the most demanding hiking. The first half dozen bites were excellent - good texture, decent flavor, all around tasty. But the saltiness - it just kept increasing. By the end of the bag, all I was tasting was salt. Salt. Salt. I suppose if we had been hiking somewhere a little more demanding, a little sweatier, the salt might have been a godsend, but it was too much for this rather more casual trip.
