Great for Camping
This is one of the many products our family takes on our camping trips. Excellent taste, easy to pack and a wonderful food source.
best all around
What more can you ask for? Protien,carbs and calories. Plust it tastes great.
Economical & Tasty
I purchased this to add variety to my #10 can pantry, and also because it is one of the more economical Entrees. It turned out to be one of the Kids Favorites.
For the price you can't beat the amount of calories you get out of this can, and it taste good as well.
Great Taste/Great Price
Packed full of flavor and nutrition. The product cooked well and tasted great.
The Saratoga Farms Rice and Chicken is a good entree. I like it better than the Mountain House Rice and Chicken because it has a more homemade taste to it. I noticed they changed they're ingredients a little with the Saratoga Farms brand since I bought it (I'm reviewing for the old ingrediants). It used too have real chicken not TVP. I'm not against TVP but real chicken is real chicken and I'd definitely want my main protein source to be from real meat.
Never have enough of this stuff!
My family loves the chicken and rice.
Good, but let it get all the way done first
The first time I tried this I didn't really like it because the rice was still crunchy. Then I just learned that the rice entries take a little longer (or just use boiling water) to "cook" compared to the pasta, but it is perfect and tastes wonderful once the rice gets done. Now we love it.
I purchased several of these #10 cans for long term storage, but when the box arrived, we found one of the cans had a significant dent in it. So we decided to open it and try it. We were pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to prepare and how tasty it was. I had heard that the portion sizes were not realistic for adults, so I doubled the portions. We ended up having a lot left over!
From The Ready Store:
Thanks for the review. We have worked hard to package our product in a way that the cans should not dent. However, sometimes during shipping the cans can still dent due to air pressure or mishandling of the boxes. If you receive an item that is dented PLEASE contact our customer service and we would be happy to ship you a replacement. Oh, and we're glad you enjoyed the chicken and rice, it's one of our favorites.
This product should be named "rice and TVP".
If you are expecting "chicken" in a product named "rice and chicken", then do NOT buy this product. There is no chicken in this. I complained several weeks ago when I got my order that this was false advertising. I was told that they are aware of the problem and would address it. Now this is back on special and there is NO change to the web site. It still does not point out that this is a TVP product, which is cheaper and inferior to real meat. This is dishonest and a good way to lose customers. Deception is not a wise path to follow. I am not happy with how this was handled. I wonder how many other Saratoga Farms products do not contain real meat?
UPDATE: While the website did mention that the product was Chicken TVP, we wanted to make sure the contents of the product were stated even more clearly. We added a second bolded mention of the TVP chicken on the product page after this review. Thank you Mcatch22 for wroting in and telling us about this issue. We appreciate all feedback whether or positive or negative.
Perfect for the price
When you consider the price, this seems to be the perfect item to stock up on. A great choice for emergency preparation.
