This week I am reviewing Thrive Freeze Dried White Meat Chopped Chicken, courtesy of Misty Marsh over at Your Own Home Store. I am very interested in freeze dried meats, as my current food storage is low on meat items. I made Chopped Chicken Salad using the following recipe: Ingredients: 3/4 cup Thrive Freeze Dried Chopped Chicken 1/4 cup Thrive celery 1/8 cup Thrive onion1 1/2 cups water 1/4 cup mayonnaise Salt and pepper to taste Bring water in a pot to boil. Add the chicken, celery and onion. Let soak for10 minutes until reconstituted. After 10 minutes is up, place the mixture in a colander and let the water drain for 10 minutes. Make sure all the excess water drains out. Set aside in the refrigerator until cool. Next, combine the cooled chicken mixture with mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon into bread or crackers. This mixture made enough filling for three sandwiches. I had the family taste the chicken salad and guess what, everyone liked it! The chicken looked nice and white, and the onion and celery smelled very fresh. The family was saying it smelled good in the kitchen after I mixed them up with water. Just like fresh chicken by itself, the reconstituted freeze dried chicken taste bland so it does need seasonings. The freeze dried onion and celery both added a nice flavor to the chicken salad. I would eat this dish again. Next time I will add the chicken to some pasta- I think it will taste just as good. I liked the Thrive Freeze Dried Chopped Chicken, Celery and Onion and feel they would make a good addition to your food storage and pantry. You can find them at Your Own Home Store under the Purchase Shelf Reliance tab.
