  • The only thing I've used it for is chicken salad (with mayo, grapes, etc.)

  • i usually just use chicken tenders and shred them myself, but the canned chicken would be great to spice up and use in home made quesadillias. just butter both sides of a tortillia and brown them in a skillet, fill with shredded chicken that's been simmered with chicken taco seasoning and that white mexican cheese, fold in half and cook on medium til the cheese melts good. cut it into triangles and dip it in sour cream or salsa. i usually serve them with spanish rice and mexican corn (you can buy cans of mexican corn with peppers, drain, and add a few table spoons of cream cheese...its AMAZING, i promise!).

  • chicken salad, chicken and black bean burritos, chicken tacos, certain casseroles. Really what it comes down to is a lack of time. If I don't have time to defrost or even cook the chicken or just don't feel like it..lol....I use the canned chicken. OR if I have run out of chicken. It's nice to always have it there just in case. We buy it in the 6 packs at Costco. It's a good back up.

  • I use it for casaroles. Otherwise it tastes funny from being in the can. You could also use it in soups as well. Anything that cooks for a while and the other ingridients can help mask the can taste. Like Tuna Casarole, clearly with added Chicken. Chicken Noodle or Chicken and Rice Soup, etc.
