This one got rave reviews from our taste testers — one guy said, “Tastes like real food!” I can personally say it’s one of the best prepackaged trail meals I’ve tried. With roasted chicken and dumplings in a thick, savory gravy, it reminded me of something Grandma might make.

Craving comfort food on a chilly evening? Dig into this prep-in-the-bag meal, loaded with melt-in-your-mouth dumplings and crunchy cornbread croutons. The broth blends smoky mushrooms with sweet carrots and peas, and it's chockablock with bits of tender chicken.

frequently asked questions
We recommend that all of our hot meals spend time "steep-cooking™" while snuggled in a Cook-in-Cozy™. We find this method promotes a more consistent temperature and steady cook time for Cook-in-Bag™ preparation; and results in a better serving temperature for your meal. When not in use, our Cook-in-Cozy™ folds away nicely in your pack for storage and weighs in at only 1.4oz.
Solid meal. Tasty and filling. Sadly, in an inexplicable move, they have dropped the protein by about 15 grams and increased the sodium. What?? Still pretty good though.
A great meal! Very filling and delicious. I did use less water than it calls for and it was perfect. I will definitely get this again.
I'm not usually a big fan of other people's chicken and dumplings, but after trying my husband's I will be ordering my own for our next trip. Sharing isn't acceptable when it's that good!
Super food for a backpacking meal! Very hearty and lots of flavor. Chicken tasted like real chicken and hydrated well. My wife and I shared this with some Rustic Skillet Bread. Great meal! Will buy more.
Always one of my favorites! Flavorful and filling. Easy to prepare and well worth the short wait for steeping.
Wonderful meal, will be ordering many more shortly, grate taste, good price, ships fast and is very easy to track. And a persinal favorite for me about this meal is if you make it in a pot, the pot is easy to clean after,
Prep and "cook" was super easy! Great flavor, enough that I thought my grandmother was right there with me in the backcountry cooking. If you are one hungry guy after hiking or whatever, get this!
4 Stars I was a little concerned at the 10 minute mark that this was looking more like a thin brothed soup, but at the 20 minute mark (in my cozy, of course) it was thick and beautiful. I started hyper-salivating like Pavlov's dog immediately upon smelling it after the "grand opening". Wonderful and hearty. Comparable to a premium canned soup, yet better. Large portion fed three of us for lunch. As with all backpacking food, allow it to rehydrate for a minimum of 20 minutes (longer if you can stand it) in a cozy so it stays HOT and it'll turn out just right.
Very good taste and texture. Only complaint was when made with amount of water on directions it made a soupier chicken and dumplings than I'm accustomed to. If/when I order again (and it's good enough to order more), will try reducing water by a 1/2 cup or so and see if that gives the consistency I like.
just add water
