Here's a great chicken casserole:

Topping: French fried onions or crushed potato chips
-Mix all ingredients, except topping. Pour into greased 13x9x2 inch baking dish.
Bake covered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Sprinkle onions or potato chips over casserole.
Bake uncovered for 15-20 more minutes.
**You can substitute 3 cups of cooked rice.
I have a great recipe for BBQ Chicken Quesadillas:
1 can of canned chicken, drained
1/4-1/2 cup BBQ sauce (depending on your taste)
1/4 chopped onion
1/4 cup honey
margarine or butter
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with tin foil and spray heavily with non-stick cooking spray (or use the non-stick foil). Cook onions in butter and honey until golden. Add chicken and BBQ sauce.
I make chicken salad from canned chicken.
I dunno the size can that you are using, so you'll need to add/decrease the ingredients.
Sorry I can't be specific.
In a large bowl combine the following :
1 large can chicken, drained and meat chunks broken up with your fingers
1/2 cup red seedless grapes halved
1/2 cup broken pecan pieces
3 Tablespoons ( more or less ) mayonnaise
Combine the ingredients, stirring so there is a goodly amount of mayonnaise in the mixture.( But not too much mayonnaise as it tastes better with less ) Cover the bowl. Store in the 'fridge for an hour or two before serving.
The g'kids love this !
It makes a great salad for a luncheon, serve on a salad plate dressed with lettuce.
It makes good sandwiches too.....some times I even splurge and buy those little croissaints to serve it on.
I have a great recipes for chicken enchiladas.
1Or 2 lg cans of chicken (next size larger than tuna, not sure of oz)

shredded velveeta cheese
combine the chicken, salsa, cream cheese in a sauce pan. Heat until cream cheese is melted. Put a large spoonful of mixture in tortilla. Roll up and place in a casserole dish sprayed with non stick spray. Cover with shredder cheese and heat in 350 deg oven until hot and bubbly. Great dish!
I would like to can some chicken quarters and some pork chops. I have a good pressure cooker and have canned before.
You do not say what size pressure cooker but I assume you do not mean you have a pressure canner.
By canning beef you can take advantage of sales and not have to use up as much of your freezer space. This is a page about canning beef.
Many of us know that you can actually fry canned chicken, but what about canning fried chicken. This is a page about canning fried chicken.
