OMeals – Chicken Creole with Brown Rice

Add to compare

Overall Rating:

Several of us at OutdoorFoodLab have spent quite a bit of time in the south and we really love Cajun style food, creole in particular! What’s better than a spicy meal while the sun sets and the temperature begins to drop?

What came out of the Omeals Chicken Creole with Brown Rice package looked nothing like the package, or any creole we’ve ever seen for that matter. It didn’t taste like creole either. The closest comparison we could come by was that of Spaghettios.

Preparation

Preparation

Begin preparation by emptying the Omeals bag of the food pouch, heating element, and utensils. Once you remove the heating element from its individual pouch, place it back in the Omeals bag. Mix the contents of the food pouch by kneading it for a minute, as you won’t be able to do so once it is hot.  Measure and add 3-5 ounces of water to the Omeals bag or fill to the indicator line. Seal the bag as quick as you can and let stand for 3-5 minutes.

PROS:
  • Comes with a spoon and napkin.
  • No stove, pot, or fuel required.
  • Only 7 minutes for a warm meal.

CONS:
  • Directions are a bit confusing for a first timer.
  • The hot steam can burn you of you aren’t ready for it.

Taste

Taste

We were thoroughly disappointed by the taste of rice in canned tomato sauce with the occasional bit of chicken. This was most definitely a far cry from anything Cajun or creole. The mushy vegetables, almost nonexistent meat, and extremely small portion left us dissatisfied to stay the least. We couldn’t even detect the onions and bell peppers used for seasoning.

PROS:

CONS:
  • Soft vegetables.
  • Very little meat.
  • Canned quality ingredients.
