  • I use it for enchiladas, or make some of the easy bake stuffing and throw some in along with broccoli and cover with cheese. I use it instead of tuna if we don't have real tuna and chop pickles with some cheese in there as well. There are a few other things I find to use it with but I can't remember right now! I hope that helps! :) As far as hamburger helper.... you could try it! I dont' think it sounds so good but you really never know until you try it!

  • Canned chicken in hamburger helper would be gross, but you could use it in tuna helper.

    Canned chicken makes good chicken enchiladas and broccoli, cheese & rice casserole. I use canned chicken mainly for chicken salad.

    I've also used it to make quesadillas and they turned out really good. I stir fried the chicken in a frying pan with about a teaspoon of corn oil, diced onion and bell pepper. I seasoned it with taco seasoning. I then spread the mixture on a tortilla, topped with shredded cheese, laid another tortilla on top and baked on a cookie sheet at 350 degrees until the tortilla was crisp.

    You can also fix a package of Stove Top Stuffing and stir in the canned chicken for a main dish.

  • An EASY recipe for canned chicken!!! Boil 1 bag of egg noodles till tender, and drain. After draining, add one family size can of cream of chicken soup and 1-2 cans of canned chicken (drained). Mix together and simmer over med. heat till everything is warm and creamy . *If you prefer it more creamy add some milk (about 1/2 your soup can full)* Serves 4-6
    **Leftovers can be baked/warmed in a casserole dish, topped with stove top. Makes a great noodle casserole!!! Hope you like it!!!! :)

  • 2 cans of chicken drained (12 oz total)
    1 can cream of chicken or potato soup
    2/3 c. milk
    1/4 tsp poultry seasoning
    1 box (9 or 10 oz) frozen mixed veggies (thawed-or more to taste)
    2/3 c. southern style hash browns (thawed if frozen-the cubes not the shreds)
    1 can biscuits (10 count)

    Preheat oven to temp on biscuit can. Mix together all ingredients except biscuits. Spread into a 9x9 pan or 2 qt round casserole. Bake 15 minutes. Top with biscuits; continue baking until mixture is bubbly and the biscuits are brown.

  • King Ranch Chickem, Tortilla Soup, things that have a lot of other flavors. The chicken is good but it is different than fresh.
