Wise Company – Teriyaki Chicken and Rice
Riding the dusty ATV trails of East Fort Rock Oregon on a dirt bike can be a physical challenge. It parches the throat and builds up quite the appetite. The idea of a meal of Wise Company’s Teriyaki Chicken and Rice for lunch was prominent in my mind.
Unfortunately, the low-quality ingredients, undercooked rice, and too sweet sauce that tasted nothing like teriyaki at all, left me utterly disappointed. This meal was so poor I couldn’t even finish it.

Begin by boiling two cups of water. While you’re waiting, remove the oxygen absorber from the meal and thoroughly shake the dry contents in order to pre-mix them. Once the water is boiling, simply add it to the dry contents, stir and wait 15+ minutes.
- Simple and easy to understand instructions.
- We found that the rehydration time was inadequate.
This lack luster take on a classic teriyaki dish left a lot to be desired. The vegetables lacked any taste at all and might as well not have been there. Despite extending the time for rehydration, 90% of the rice was either chewy or still hard. Even more disappointing was the “teriyaki” sauce that tasted like a sickly-sweet sugar coating that only got worse with time and left us unable to finish the meal.
- The rice was either chewy or still hard after an extended rehydration time.
- Poor quality ingredients.
- Sweet sauce tasted nothing like teriyaki.
