We use the canned chicken to make chicken salad for sandwiches, just like canned tuna.

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!

Search the requests here. I had also requested the same recipes.


I get food at a food bank pantry for free. I didn't know what to do with some of it.

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.

This is always what I give to friends in need of a meal. Everyone loves it. I make it in two 8X8 or 9x9 inch baking dishes and freeze one for later. I don't always bother with the topping, it doesn't need it. Enjoy.


Chicken Lasagna (made with s'getti noodles but IS called lasagna)
6 B/S chicken breasts or 4 cups cooked cubed chicken
12 oz pkg. Thin spaghetti
2 cans reduced-fat cream of mushroom soup or your favorite
1/2 cups low fat or fat free cottage cheese
1 small onion chopped small
1 cup milk
1 8 oz pkg. Fat free cream cheese, diced
dash salt & pepper

3 T. melted margarine
1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
Mix together for topping.

Boil chicken breasts until no longer pink and cut into bite sized pieces.
Cook spaghetti until tender and drain.
In a large bowl, mix soup, cottage cheese, milk, onion & cream cheese.
Mix well. Add chicken & onion.
In a 9 X 13 inch baking pan, which has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, layer half
The spaghetti followed by half the cheese/chicken mixture.
Top with the last of the spaghetti and then chicken mix.

*Preheat oven to 350°
Bake for 45 minutes, then uncover and sprinkle with potato chips or seasoned bread crumbs.
Place back in oven for 10 minutes.
Very good reheated the next day.
*Can also be heated in a glass baking dish in the microwave until bubbly.

Drain the pork, shred it with a fork, and add B-B-Q sauce. Heat and serve on toasted rolls/buns for wonderful sandwiches.
