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.


— BSA Boys' Life Magazine, October 2015

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

Why is a Cook–in–Cozy™ recommended?
 

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.


    — BSA Boys' Life Magazine, October 2015

    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

    Why is a Cook–in–Cozy™ recommended?
     

    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.

      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.

      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.
