As others pointed out, if you can it yourself then you are know for certain what you are eating. And it tastes better.

I have never bought canned chicken but have bought canned beef. Won't be doing that again.

Costco canned beef is fine. It comes out in chunks and tastes like a mildly flavored casserole. It would be great in a pie. The chicken is in brine and tastes like albacore. It needs some kind of sauce even if you just made chicken salad.

We just bought some canned chicken from Costco yesterday while outfitting for our cruise. I've never eaten it before and am not sure what to expect, but we figured there might come a time when canned chicken looked appealing. And it's good to know you can put it in curries!

Re: Costco Canned Chicken . . . a Contender

Does Costco can/import Chinese chicken? Or is it good ol merican/"anglo-ish" chicken exported for cheap processing?

With what goes on in the US re food inspection/regulations/feed additives/production farms, one can only wonder what happens in an unregulated market.

No reason to look to China or Mexico for problems in the food chain, our processors in Texas and Oaklahoma poison plenty of people annually! PS, we pay to have inspectors in the factories that sell in the U.S.

It's similar to canned tuna. Tastes somewhat like all-white tuna too. It's really pretty good, if tuna is your thing then why not chuna too?

"Chuna" of the sea solves that idiot celebrity's wondering whether COS is tuna or chicken. How could one get to be an adult without knowing that?

Re: Costco Canned Chicken . . . a Contender

Hi All, A truly good cook can make road kill taste good ;I know ,I'm married to one.
A mediocre cook can do a passable job with canned meats and no refrigeration if he has some practice and truly cares about the final product; I know I'm one of those.
Granted,that good ingredients and spices with some fresh vegs will help round all out,but rather than bore all with my recipes,I encourage those doubters to experiment and find out what works for them. You may just surprise your self.
If I find a new product (dried ,canned,or whatever) that I think may add interest to a cruise ,in it goes to my shopping cart for a test. Ghetto neighborhoods, different parts of your country,ethnic stores and foreign markets add to the total adventure and will help make you a true citizen of our world.
One caveat: I read of a cruiser who stocked up on some flavorful; canned beef before leaving Brazil, some friends came aboard when he returned home and one of whom read Portuguese,after looking thru the single handers larder; he asked;" do you have a dog on board"?

First of all, it's Costco, not Cosco NEMO55. And it is NOT a Chinese company, no matter what they say on Fox Business Reports.

Apparently Mrs. Minty does it the other way around: "If I want culinary abominations then I can always let Mrs Minty cook. It's amazing what she can do with good ingredients. In fact it's amazing that no matter what ingredients she starts with, she manages to produce ... well... there's no good description, but it always looks the same. "

Re: Costco Canned Chicken . . . a Contender

When we talk about things for our boat, we seem to have more substantial discussions regarding the quality of the product than is presented in this discussion about food we put in our body. The primary considerations in this discussion seem to be taste, convenience and cost. In contrast, when we consider something like boat paint, we consider factors more substantial than appearance, such as how well it protects our boat. Certainly issues like availability and stowability need to be considered and I am not judging this product's nutrition value, but I would certainly question its nutritional value and would want this quality, perhaps the most important quality of a food, to be part of the discussion before I run out and buy a case.
