This freeze dried chicken is quite tasty and very hiker/backpacker friendly. It's light, easy to cook and has a great texture. In a pinch, it's even cold soak friendly but it does take about 1 hour. (3-4 minutes in the microwave) This is a great way to add some variety to your meals at home too without much hassle.
This was my experience with a purchase made on Prime Day October 10, 2023. I purchased 3 cans for long-term storage. I paid $34.80 each.One can had a dent, so I opened it for eating and the vacuum seal was still strong. The other two cans were dent free. The best by date was December 2052 so they were nearly a year old.This can was almost full of diced chicken and there was very little dust in the bottom. After hydrating, the chunks are a little larger. It took about 10 minutes to fully hydrate and the chicken was delicious. The uses for this product are limited only by your imagination.This product should last for 30 years if stored in a cool dry place. I gave a 5.0 for this purchase but would give a 4.8 due to the dent and being produced almost a year ago. I got what I paid for.
Bottom line up front: This type of food is a great choice for an emergency food supply, especially for sheltering in place or evacuating by vehicle. The #10 cans have a 25-year shelf life, so you can buy them and not worry about rotating your stock for a couple of decades. The biggest downside is that once opened, they need to be used up right away.SHELF LIFE - The #10 cans have a 25-year shelf life (unopened). The biggest downside to #10 cans versus individual pouches is that the 25-year shelf life turns into a 1-week shelf life once they've been opened. Since each can has enough for 10 servings, you'll be eating the same thing for several meals unless you're cooking for a group.TASTE - In my experience, Mountain House food is really tasty. Let me caveat this review by saying that although I've eaten other Mountain House freeze-dried food, I haven't had occasion to open the ones in the #10 cans (see my review of the "Mountain House 72-Hour Emergency Meal Kit"). That having been said, the Mountain House food I have tried has been very, very good tasting -- not just good compared to other survival foods, but good period. I have no reason to expect that these would be any different.WEIGHT/CONVENIENCE - As steel cans, they're reasonably durable and reasonably lightweight (not backpacking light, but you don't have to be a weightlifter to move a large box of them). They do take up a bit of volume, but since the overwhelming majority of long-term emergency scenarios involve sheltering in place or evacuating by vehicle, I wouldn't let that be a deal breaker (personnally, I have a stock of individual pouches just in case I have to leave on foot, but most of my food is in these cans).CALORIES - The problem with most freeze-dried emergency food is that a so-called "serving" has too few calories to meet an adult's energy requirements (2500 a day for men; 2000 a day for women -- more with heavy exertion), so you end up consuming more than you planned. These are no different. So even though a typical can ostensibly contains 10 1-cup servings, you really need to eat two servings per meal to get enough calories to survive -- perhaps more. Plan your purchase accordingly.
This is actually a lot of chicken. Wanted to try some of this kind of thing for making pre-prepared dry (add water) meals to take camping, fishing and hunting. Added to rice or potatoes, there is a lot of chicken here. Just a small handful of the freeze dried chicken adds a lot to a meal, and there many many small handfuls in the can. The taste is what you would expect I suppose, a bit salty, definitely not fresh, but perfectly acceptable. Reconstitutes quickly, so food doesn't have time to get cold while waiting for the water to soak in. Excellent texture when reconstituted.
When the rampaging mobs are running wild in the streets...you will have chicken for your noodles.
No most people ain't going to know what to do when they get a can of freeze dried chicken they're going to think somebody's playing a trick on me but there is no trick here. All there is is 100% pure chicken and all you need to do is rehydrate it and it doesn't take much you can actually take although it suggests that you use hot water warm water boiling water, you can take cold water pour your chicken in a bowl pour cold water over it set it in your fridge maybe once every 2 hours and by the time 24 hours is up your chicken will be completely rehydrated.
Discovering this freeze-dried chicken dog treats was a game-changer for my pup's snacking routine. Unlike other powdery treats, these maintain a satisfying crunch thanks to their premium freeze-drying technique. With a clean ingredient list focused solely on real chicken, they've become my go-to choice for a healthy and irresistible reward. The unmistakable aroma and flavor of the chicken make tail-wagging excitement a guarantee, while the convenient resealable metal container ensures lasting freshness. Although a bit pricier, the quality and benefits they bring to my dog's coat and energy levels make them a worthwhile investment than the dog treats I normally buy. These freeze-dried treats have unquestionably earned their place as a must-have in our treat collection – a true delight for any four-legged friend!
Perfect for the day of days. Long shelf life easy to make and tastes good. What else could you ask for when the zombies come.
GREAT SALE ITEM, BOUGHT 2
Making chicken flour (yup that’s a thing)? So fast to put in the food processor and easy sifting. May be a bit pricier than starting with fresh chicken but it’s WAY faster and easier. The convenience is worth it to me.
