Our sweet and sour chicken merges a perfect blend of sweet and sour spices with rice, pineapple, bell peppers, carrots, and all-natural chicken. We believe the food you eat while enjoying your favorite outdoor activities should be flavorful and easy to prepare, so try this on for size: all that stands between you and your next meal is some boiling water and 15-20 minutes of hydration time.
Sweet & Sour chicken has been a go-to Chinese favorite for years, but we knew we couldn’t let it taste like years past with the new flavors and authentic ingredients in our chef’s pantry. New recipe for 2018, Backpacker’s Pantry Sweet & Sour Rice and Chicken will have your jaw on the floor. Not too sweet, with a sauce that’s just the right consistency we’ve put giant chunks of dehydrated pineapple in here that feel like they were just cut from the tree. Our all-natural white meat chicken gives this delicious meal 19 grams of protein per serving so your Chinese flavor is backed up with nutrition you can trust. Veggies like bell pepper and carrots add in more freshness and crunch to this lightweight favorite. This gluten-free entrée is tested to 20ppm just like we test all of our gluten-free meals so you know you’re not taking any risks while out in the field. Adding 2 cups of boiling water is as simple as it gets. The hardest part is waiting the 20 minutes for it to rehydrate. We won’t tell if you pick out some of the pineapple beforehand like we do. Sweet & Sour Rice and Chicken at its finest. Feeds two hungry folks.
