Can of Awesomeness!

If you haven't discovered the simplicity and inexpensiveness of Premium Canned Chicken - discover it! You can buy great chicken at Costco - 6 cans for $10! And the amount of things you can do with it is unbelievable! Here are some of the things we like to do around our house:

BARBECUE CHICKEN SANDWICHES - All you do is mix the chicken with your favorite bbq sauce, a little bit of salt and pepper and WAH-LAH! You have wonderful barbecue chicken to put on bread for sandwiches.

FIESTA CHICKEN  - This is perfect for using up leftovers. I mixed the chicken with a can of green enchilada sauce and the leftover spanish rice (about 1 cup) and corn (about 1/2 - 3/4 cup cooked) we had in our refrigerator. You come up with a great and flavorful Mexican chicken that you can use on top of chips for nachos or wrapped into a tortilla. This made enough that we had it for dinner TWICE in a week.

CHICKEN SALAD - Go simple and mix the chicken with mayonnaise and salt and pepper, or get fancy and cut up some grapes, celery, and slivered almonds in there. Serve on bread, croissants, on top of crackers, or whatever!

These are just a few suggestions for using thissimple chicken. What creative and tasty ways can you come up with?
