Chicken Tetrazzini for the Appalachian Trail

Finding individual portions of protein is sometimes a challenge when packaging meals for the trail. Amazon has Sweet Sue Premium Chicken Breast in 3-ounce servings. Just perfect for one person. I don’t like to eat a lot of beef, even on the trail, so I have several chicken entrees that are hearty and tasty. Here is the recipe:

Hiker’s Chicken Tetrazzini (makes 2 servings)
2 pkgs. Sweet Sue Premium Chicken Breast
½ cup dry Mushroom Gravy Base                                    2 tbsp. Meyenburg Goat Milk
½ cup Parmesan                                                              2 tbsp. powdered butter
¼ cup dehydrated red pepper                                         2 tsp. dried parsley
½ cup dehydrated mushrooms                                        Salt & Pepper to taste
2 tbsp. dried Italian bread crumbs                                   4 ounces spaghetti, broken
3 cups water (for 2 servings)
Mix mushroom gravy mix, goat milk, parmesan, butter, parsley, and salt and pepper. Divide into two servings and seal. Divide spaghetti, peppers and mushrooms into two portions and seal. Divide Italian bread crumbs into 2 packets. In a larger bag, put one package of Sweet Sue Chicken Breast, one mushroom gravy packet, one spaghetti/vegetable packet and one crumb packet and seal with an oxygen absorber. On the trail: Bring 1 ½ cups of water to a boil. Add spaghetti and vegetables. When spaghetti is tender, stir mushroom gravy packet into the spaghetti. Simmer until heated through. Top with Italian Bread Crumbs.
