If you have used it what can or did you make with it? I have a few cans and have yet to even open them. Thanks a bunch.

I have tried it and don't care for it personally. Sorry, that's just my honest opinion.

I would probably use it in a casserole of some kind, to sort of mask the off-putting flavor.

My DH is a retired Marine and says it tastes like an MRE (meal ready to eat) which they used to take into the field. :/

Mix with cream cheese and mayo for sandwiches, mix with rice and cream of chicken soup for creamy chicken and rice, use in chicken and rice/noodle soup, chicken and dumplings.

I only use it in 3 things...Buffalo chicken dip...My own version of Homestyle Bakes Country chicken (It's merely mashed potatoes layered in a baking dish covered with a country gravy and chicken mix topped with bisquick drop biscuits and baked til biscuits are done and it's all bubbly hot) and a occasional chicken sandwich (mixed with olive oil and spices-daughter doesn't like mayo) if I have some on hand and need a quick lunch. Other than  that-we don't buy it often.

Quoting mommyinthe303:

There's the same amount of chicken in a can like tuna. It's very soft and makes a good chicken salad sandwich.

You can also add a can or two when making stuffing.

Mix it with a package of country style gravy and a can of drained mixed vegetables. Put in a baking pan and top with canned biscuits for a quick chicken pot pie.

It also makes wonderful chicken & rice.

You can make white chicken chili with it too.
