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
shredded cheese
flour tortillas
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. Mix together well in pan until heated and mixed well. Butter tortillas on the outside and put a little bit of the chicken mixture in the middle of each tortilla. Sprinkle liberally with cheese. Place tortilla on top with butter side facing out. Place quesadilla on cookie sheet and cook for about 10 minutes until edges are golden brown. Flip over and place back in the oven. When finished, cut into slices with pizza cutter and serve with sour cream. Yum!

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.

You do not say what size pressure cooker but I assume you do not mean you have a pressure canner.
There can be a big difference in what is called a pressure cooker and what is called a pressure canner - even one that is called a pressure cooker/canner. many instructions state to use a pressure canner but then keep saying pressure cooker so please read more before trying this.


Please read this article before deciding to use a pressure cooker:
