Break from the uninspired trail meal and reach for this modern twist on chicken salad. "I loved the big, juicy hunks of meat with peas and currants, seasoned with mango and fragrant curry powder," says one tester, who rehydrated this cold-water-prep wrap on-trail in Washington's Wenatchee Mountains. "I stopped for one minute to add water to the bag so it would rehydrate while I hiked. Twenty minutes later, I sat down for a gourmet lunch." Mix in the included packet of ranch dressing to add creaminess - and an extra 11 grams of fat per serving. Great for chilly weather. BYO bread or tortilla.

Smell is absolutely fantastic! I love cold soaking my lunches. They are fantastic. Gives a much needed protein punch to my trail. I’ve tried quite a few of these cold soak lunch options and I think this one is my favorite. Great on tortillas or on Triscuits
Delicious! Different than a lot of lunches. Miles better than a tuna or chicken packet. Good portion size. Rehydrated perfectly! Loved this on Black Pepper Triscuits!
This is one of my all time favorite freeze dried meals and is one of my regular “go-to” meals. I enjoy it with spinach tortilla / wraps. I especially appreciate the cool water option.
My kids and I all love every variety of the Chicken salad meals - we add the cool water before we head out for the day and then put on either crackers or small street taco size tortillas. Every time we head out on an overnight trip my kids ask if we are bringing these for lunch. They are filling and tasty.
I used the cold water method in the morning to have this re-hydrated by lunch to have with my tortillas. It really is a personal preference but this one had a little to much "mesquite" flavor for me. The consistency and preparation instructions were spot on.
Just finished 5 day hike. Tried each of the chicken salad meals. They are perfect! 3oz trail weight, 400+ Cal and 40g protein and great tasting! Best part, just add water without heating. Thanks PackitGormet!
Very good. Lots of protein, fine on its own without carb wrap. Strongly recommended!
Loved this one! Brought my own tortillas to wrap it in. Will definitely buy again.
Very flavorful. Great for lunch or dinner. Had it in a wrap with some extra mayo. I will definitely get this one again!
just add water
