Chicken Salad Recipe – Emergency preparedness

Being prepared for emergencies means having good on hand you can cook with no power and no refrigeration.   You don’t want to be stuck eating peanut butter and jelly for days when you loose power in a storm.  I put together this chicken salad recipe using Thrive Foods dehydrated foods I got from Carolina Food Storage.

  1. That doesn't look too bad for rehydrated chicken! I was a little scared at first. :)

    Great idea!  I will have to try using apples next time I make chicken salad.

    I have never used dehydrated food. It looks a lil different but once all put together it doesn't look too bad. Plius I have never added fruit to my chicken salad. So how did it taste?
  4. Thanks for a good on hand recipe! I've never tried this company but would be able to do it with other 'names' of on hand foods I have here. I'm a prepper myself, and live in the South....where we often lose power due to weather! Either way, it's a great idea! Thanks for the post!

    I've never tried Thrive before, but that sandwich looks appetizing! What a great idea, as constant PBJs would be tiresome! Great post.
