After an intense hike, sometimes all you crave is warm comfort food to fill you up and keep you going. This hearty meal packs in the protein with loads of savory chicken, and keeps it keto with broccoli and cheese in a deliciously creamy sauce. You’ll feel like you're eating a home-cooked casserole out on the trail, and you won't even have to make an appearance at Susan’s annual potluck to get it.

My partner and I ordered a selection of Next Mile meals (Beef Tacos, Steak Omelette, Beef Marinara, and Chicken Broccoli Cassarole) to take with us on our long planned trip to hike in the High Sierras this September. We brought several other brands of dehydrated dinners with us as well. My partner is usually pretty underwhelmed with dehydrated food, but the first night we tried the Next Mile Chicken & Broccoli Casserole, he spent extra time extracting as much as he could from the bottom of the pouch. We both agreed that these were the tastiest, most filling, and healthiest dehydrated meals we have ever had. We routinely eat high protein/low carb and I was really pleased that these meals were very similar to what we would already be eating at home. They were quick to prepare, needing less water and less time than the other brands we had with us. We saved the Beef Tacos until our last night so we could end our trip on a high note! I would highly recommend these to anyone and everyone.
I bought a couple packs of different option but unfortunately I tried the broccoli and chicken pack first and didn't feel like eating any of the others. I'm not a picky eater after a day of backpacking, but the smell of the broccoli and the dry texture of the chicken made me lose my appetite. I opted for Happy Cow cheese and salami the rest of the weekend.
I've enjoyed two of the Chicken & Broccoli Casserole meals (eaten directly from the bag, btw) and found them to be tasty and nutritious! The Chicken & Broccoli Casserole are fine as-is but, just for kicks one may enjoy adding pizza pepper, cheese stick, etc to create an even more tasty meal.
