I like this Chicken in stews and soups. It's very easy to use.
I find that Amazons Augason Farms items are about the same price or even a bit lower but with faster shipping! The item itself seems of good quality. I’m using it to put together long term storage meals in a jar so I can’t comment if flavor.
It is good, and very similar to all the other name brands out there. I buy this stuff based on price hence why I have tried a few different brands. It is mostly chicken cubes with some shards and powder. Very typical. I use it primarily for use with my dogs as I like to give them a chicken topper for their kibble. I usually have fresh chicken on hand, but occasionally I run out or failed to defrost or just didnt have time to cook up some more. So I reach for the freeze dried stuff. I can rehydrate it real quick, or I can just toss on their kibble. I can easily squeeze it into crumbles and powder if I want to stretch it. And also I keep some on hand for well.. emergencies or food shortages, etc. I have definitely walked into a store and not seen a single piece of chicken at times. Good to have options in the home pantry.
A good buy
I felt relieved when I saw this product available because when you are at home and not able to get to the stores not much is offered for meals and this won't get rotten if you don't finish it within a week so those are good things. I tried it the first time in some soup and I thought that it was bitter tasting but then I tried cooking it a different way and it's much better. I wouldn't say that putting boiling water and powder seasoning is how to cook it it's nice to just soak it in marinade and then pan fry it and the barbecue style taste better than the creamy pasta methods. I used A1 sauce, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and ketchup added to the dry chunks and cooked up the has browns then sauteed them together and it's got a good flavor. As a kid I was given herbs for medicine so this to me taste like a mix of Uva Ursi, Echinaccea, and skull cap that are used for head aches so I'm guessing that this is probably some sort of mushroom because I want to say there's also Willow Bark. It's better than the process to extend real animal product it can involve chemicals but the can should at least tell people so they know how to cook it like a stir fry otherwise it tastes like aspirin.
It can be stored for years, and it tastes amazing!
Bought for long term storage
Tastes good, nice consistency and flavor. This tastes like the good, organic chicken I buy (not the cheap 'egg-tasting' chicken...you know what I mean). I just take a cup scoop and place it in the pot with the other wet ingredients, makes a good smelling/tasting rice, noodle, sauce dish. The chicken is both tender and also stiff enough to reconstitute to normal 'chicken-density'. I have noticed that the flavor is better and the chicken more tender after I let the dish sit to cool for an additional 20 minutes after cooking. Shelf life is a year after opening...I like this product.
I opened the can and vacuum packed it into mylar bags and the actual amount of chicken in pieces was 6 cups/12 servings the rest was dust.
I bought several of these for my Mom along with several of the dried vegetables. She doesn't want to cook complicated things now that she's older but she can have chicken soup w veggies or throw some chicken over pasta or rice in a matter of minutes. She likes the flavor and convenience of having "home cooked" without alot of work or food waste.
