If you like spicy . . . Y U M !
Super easy! Add 1.5 cups boiling water, stir, seal, wait, stir, seal wait, eat. Total wait under 20 minutes. If you’re using a fork to stir, be careful not to puncture the bag!. Very flavorful!
Thanks for the great review (and fork tip), Fred! We're so glad you loved your meal!
Bring back the separated packets!
This meal was god-tier. Easily the best backpacking meal on the market. Recent versions, however, have went from having separate lime, spice, etc. Packets to having most of it mixed it. It's now impossible to make it to your desired spice level preference. I love spice, but some nights in the backcountry I don't want the new base level of spice. Still delicious, but I definitely wish it was the way it used to be.
Hi Jodi - Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We appreciate your loyalty to our Pad Thai with Chicken and really value your feedback!
One of my favourites
This is one of my staples & I include it on nearly every backpacking trip
They taste great, Awesome meals!
Never received my order
I had it before, and remembered it was tasty. However, my order was canceled silently by Backpacker without any communication. I would appreciate if you just tell me it's back ordered and deliver it later. Now I don't know if I should venture ordering it again and suffer the silent cancelation again?
Pad Thai with Chicken
A favorite of our Boy Scout Troop. They especially like the added flavor packet to spice it up to their taste.
Pad Thai with Chicken
This was probably in the top 2 all-time favorites for backpack meals. Almost too much food. Very filling.
Great tasteful meal
Great filling meal and the custom spice packets are excellent!
For something different!
Definitely flavorful and filling, a true comfort dish worth having on hand
Thanks for taking a moment to share you feedback, Ken! We're glad we can feed you well at home or on the trail. :)
This is awesome. It's got some nice kick to it, and it tastes as close to real Pad Thai as I think you could get from a freeze-dried meal. I LOVE the little mix-ins, and this was filling enough that my hiking buddy and I were able to split and still be satisfied (sometimes, we each have our own 2-serving meal). My only complaint, and it's small: there's a lotta packaging for this buddy. I get why it's like that, and we definitely carefully packed out all the little wrappers. It's just an observation. Compliments to the chef on this one!!! <3
Does not taste like Pad Thai
The flavor is okay and the serving size is great for 1 hungry hiker. This does not taste at all like pad thai however, more like spaghetti from all the tomatoes and spices. Not sure if the recipe was recently changed because all the reviewers before me loved it.
We tried our first freeze dried meal with the Pad Thai with Chicken. It was beyond our expectations in taste and ease of preparation. The crystallized line was definitely the key flavor for this, making it taste like a freshly cooked meal. We highly recommend backpackers pantry to all of our friends and family, especially the Pad Thai!
Could pass as an entree at a real Thai place. Super tasty and nice zing with the sriracha. Definitely the best-tasting dehydrated meal I have ever had.
Ate several different meals (from different brands) on my 5 day backpacking trip, this was by far the best. So freaking good...plus the little packets of peanuts, sriracha, lime, and peanut butter...yep.
This meal is the Trevor Lawrence of meals. I wish i could give a 6th star.
Awesome Phad Thai
This Chicken Phad Thai is better than some restaurants I’ve been too! Definitely my favorite so far. It’s so filling, really warms up my stomach.
