Do you eat canned chicken?

Our neighbors brought us a few cans the other day...they bought it by mistake, thinking it was tuna. Anyway...I used it last night for chicken quesadillas...just drained it and stired it up in the skillet with a little butter and taco seasoning. It was surprisingly good and I couldn't really even tell it wasn't fresh.

I guess I always thought it would be gross or something, but I was impressed.

  • I love it. I usually make Pasta Salads, Chicken Salad or Dips with it... LOVE that stuff! My DH on the other hand won't eat ANY fish or meat out of a can... So I don't tell him it's not fresh!

  • I haven't tried it, but I might get some now. Its not so different from tuna. If tuna is fine, why not chicken.

  • If I'm cooking with it yes but straight of the can or even just making chicken salad with it is so nasty. But if it's fried up in a pan with seasonings or whatever then yes it can be pretty good.

  • I've used it in casseroles, pot pies, sandwiches, etc. when I've been in a pinch. It works great for recipes that call for cooked chicken.

  • No, even before I was a vegan never ate it.

  • I use it only for chicken quesadillas - that's one food I don't like fresh chicken for, and I don't like canned chicken for anything else. So on average we maybe have it twice a year.

  • Yes, good for all kinds of hot chicken dishes.
