Backpacker’s Pantry – Fettuccini Alfredo with Chicken
After a long, cold, and wet day, what could be better than a generous portion of a warm and filling meal? Right beside the fire was best place to stay warm and try out Backpacker’s Pantry Fettuccini Alfredo with Chicken.
Thick and creamy, satisfying and healthy. While this was not the best fettuccini I’ve ever had, it was far better than what I was expecting. I wouldn’t hesitate to make this a regular meal on my treks.

Preparing the Fettuccini Alfredo with Chicken is quite simple and straightforward. Simply add 2 cups of boiling water to the dry ingredients, stir, and wait 15 minutes.
-We recommend mixing the dry ingredients evenly beforehand. Powdered ingredients tend to gravitate to the bottom of the package and become difficult to mix well once wet.
- Roughly 20 minutes to fully prepare
- Most of the preparation time is simply waiting for the ingredients to steep in the boiled water, which is added directly to the original package.
- No recommendation to mix dry ingredients thoroughly before filling the package with boiling water.
- Extremely thorough mixing needed before and after adding hot water.
This meal was fun to eat, filling, and satisfying. The generous portions didn’t quite taste like mama’s Alfredo, but the creamy sauce was well seasoned and proportionate to the noodles and chicken, which were both rehydrated perfectly. The packaging of the meal was quite a bit more robust than other brands, which resulted in a much hotter meal temperature. It also rated substantially better than Wise Company’s Pasta Alfredo With Chicken in the taste category.
- Higher quality ingredients
- Larger portion size
- Warmer food
- The veggies were a bit less authentic and fresh tasting
