Coconut braised chicken thighs tossed in a tangy teriyaki-red pepper glaze (this is where the “sticky” comes from), mixed with roasted asparagus and fresh garlic, basmati rice cooked with sauteed onions and ginger in coconut milk, and finished with fresh scallions.

This meal is based on a recipe from a close family friend and is always referred to by us as “Kay’s Sticky Chicken”

    Tastes great but needs less water

    I tried my first pack of Sticky-Teriyaki Chicken with Garlic Asparagus and Coconut Rice in Retort pouch. It tastes great and I appreciate the generous amount of chunky chicken meat in it. The instructions say to add 1.5 Cups of water and wait for 12 minutes. I followed the instructions but there was a lot of water left after 12 minutes, making it soupy instead of sticky. I'd start with no more than 1 cup of water the next time.

    I don't know why I bought this flavor

    Honestly, I don't know why I bought this particular flavor. In the past I've had many bad experiences with freeze dried meals that have chicken and or rice. The rice usually isn't very good and from other backpacker meals sometimes the chicken does not rehydrate and stays hard. So I tend to avoid them. HOWEVER this company seems to have figured it out with this meal. The rice was good not mushy or too hard, the chicken was flavourful and the texture felt right.
    I would definitely get this meal again and have already purchased more meals from them to try out.
    Having eaten more freeze dried meals than I can count, I've learned that in my environment I don't need a much water as stated for most packs. Listen to others start of with a little less water and add if you want. These meals ARE EXPENSIVE especially when you add in the shipping ... you don't want to ruin it by adding to much water. You can always add more.

    This is definitely the best freeze-dried meal I’ve ever had!

    I enjoyed this meal after a good afternoon upland bird hunting trip with my Griff, Rogue. Super tasty and filling. Thanks!

    Just re-ordered more

    This meal is well worth the wait if they are out of stock. They nailed the name of this company; these meals are truly top tier. Not much feels better than taking off your shoes at the end of an adventure except cracking a cold one with the Sticky T-Chicken in hand. Keep em comin…

    One of the best

    This last year I've really gotten into hiking and have been trying numerous entrees from different brands. I'm not a picky eater but I have been surprised by how difficult it is to find hiking meals that are desirable. Many meals I have tried I have had to force myself to eat. I have tried more meals that I have to put on my do not buy again list than my buy again one. Not only did this make it on to my buy again list but dare I say it's probably the best one I've tried so far. It's one of the very few I actually crave eating again or wish there was more when I'm done. It was my first sample of this brand and I am looking forward to trying the others. Will definitely be buying more of the chicken teriyaki.

    Almost didn't buy this . . .

    I hadn't planned on purchasing this, but decided to throw it in the cart at the last moment and I'm glad I did: this is, simply, outstanding and, in my opinion, the best menu choice they offer.

    Some of the best freeze-dried food I have tested! Wish there were bigger portions, but still satisfactory.

    Easily my favorite freeze-dried backpacking meal. Rehydration is straight forward without some of the idiosyncrasies of other meals, not specifically Pinnacle’s either. The resulting texture is fantastic and the rich, full flavor is a real stand out among freeze-dried meals.

    I've tried so many different backpacking meals and this one right here is hands down one of the best I've ever had. It can be a gamble buying meals with rice but this one in particular tasted AMAZING, the rice cooked through perfectly and I really wish it was a Mary Poppins food bag and I never ran out. Would highly recommend giving it a go and it's worth every penny!!!

    Definitely on top for me

    So, I am a backpacking meal connoisseur and this meal is probably my favorite that I have tried. I absolutely love the larger chunks of veggies and it has the perfect amout of sweetness.

    Yes, It's That Good

    Worth every penny. Easily one of the top three camping meals I've ever had. Agree with other reviews, only needs 1 to 1-1/4 cup of water, all else considered, it's a treat on the trail or at home.
