Backpacker's Pantry Santa Fe Chicken
Price Paid: $9
Made this on a recent backpacking trip with two fellow hikers and it found no fans.
Of the three of us, I liked it most and found it OK to eat. Another hiker ate half his serving and swore off and the third just took a pass and had more ramen.
My impressions: Rice is good, chicken is tasteless and cooked almost to the point of being jerky, sauce has a funky aftertaste.
I wouldn't buy it again as I think there are plenty of other backpacker meals (ChiliMac and lasagna come to mind),
Price Paid: not sure
As part of our outfitting trip in the BWCA this meal was included. Backpacker's Pantry Santa Fe Chicken With Rice is very tasty. Especially if you enjoy Southwestern or Mexican cuisine.
Our biggest complaint was that no matter how long we let it "cook" in the bag the black beans and rice were still slightly crunchy.
I love these cook in the bag meals. Little mess to clean up and little trash to pack out.
I'd eat it again, but might let it stand longer than the recommended time.
