Notes

  • Add canned chicken to your pantry staples list!
  • Looking for low carb canned chicken recipes? Try our 5-Minute Low Carb Chicken Salad. If you are looking for canned chicken pasta recipes, try Easy 10 Minute Lemon Chicken Pasta.
  • A good rule of thumb would be that one (12.5 ounces) can of chicken breast would equal two chicken breasts. Or, another way to think about it is that half of a can of chicken equals one chicken breast.
  • Another time-saving tip that we both like to do is to hard boil eggs at the beginning of the week and use them in recipes or to snack on at work for a high protein treat.
