    Default Ideas for canned chicken breast

    Hello all. My parents showered us with food this last weekend because I had my baby. They gave me a ton of chicken breast in cans from Sam's.

    Chicken salad comes to mind and that is about it. Any ideas of what I can make or use it for in cooking?

    TIA

    I would use it as you would use canned tuna. As in casseroles, chicken patties, and that type of thing.

    I sometimes use it in this casserole that calls for chopped up chicken breast. It makes for a quick prep meal. I don't actually know what this is called, we just call it potato chip casserole:

    Need:
    Chicken
    1 can Cream Chicken Soup
    1 can Cream Mushroom Soup
    1 c. Mayonaise
    2 tbsp. Chicken Broth
    2 tbsp Lemon Juice
    1 c. chopped Broccoli
    2 tbsp chopped Onion
    2 c. cooked Rice
    1/2 c. Slivered Almonds
    Handful Potato Chips (Wavy Lays are the best)

    Directions:
    Combine all ingredients (except almonds and chips) in a large casserole dish. Mix thoroughly.
    Bake 400º for 25 min. Crush chips & almonds and spread on top, cook for 20 more min.

    We also used to use canned chicken (I'm assuming this is chunks not flakes) for quesadillas or fajitas when we were camping.

    Canned chicken is my lifesaver meal. When I forget to take something out. I make creamed chicken over biscuits or mashed pot. I can cook this meal in about the same time it takes to go to the drive through.

    I make creamed chicken, too-- just simmer the undrained canned chicken in a saucepan with a can or two of cream of whatever soup. Sometimes I add some chicken gravy mix if I have it, or I've also added canned mushrooms. Serve over mashed potatoes or bread. Yum!
