21. Chicken Ranch Wraps
We are big wrap people around my house. Wraps usually have fewer carbs in them than typical sandwich bread.
Plus, the wrap makes the meal feel a little lighter. So why not enjoy a chicken ranch wrap as a quick lunch or dinner?
22. Creamy Chicken Noodles
This was another meal that my mother-in-law made a lot with canned chicken. She would also sub out canned tuna and make tuna noodles as well with a recipe similar to this one.
So if you love the comfort of creamy noodles with chicken, and you want it fast, then consider using this recipe and adding some canned chicken.
23. One Pot Tomato Tortellini Soup
This is another comforting tomato soup that would be great at warming you up from the inside out this winter.
However, this is also a great recipe to utilize canned chicken because it is added protein and not the main focus of the dish.
24. Cast Iron Skillet Chicken Pot Pie
This recipe is great for a southern comfort dish. You make a chicken casserole filling in a cast iron skillet.
Then you top the mixture with canned biscuits for the crust. This meal seems pretty snappy to make as it is, but you could shave off even more time by adding canned chicken.
25. Chicken Pot Pie Turnovers
I love this recipe because I love homemade food that is portable. Are you rushing out the door to a ball game practice?
Well, no worries. Take this little pocket with you, and make it even faster by using canned chicken in the filling.
26. Easy Chicken Paella
This dish looks delicious and is a perfect match for canned chicken. I say that because the recipe calls for boneless chicken breast that is cut up into bite sized pieces. Hello? Is that not exactly what canned chicken already is?
So pull those cans of chicken out and mix them with all of the delicious spices and vegetables so you can have a delicious meal in no time flat.
27. Ranch Chicken Cheese Dip
This recipe literally already uses canned chicken. So you don’t have to think outside of the box to make it work. Just follow the recipe.
But it also contains delicious ranch flavoring and cream cheese too. That way you can spread it on a cracker and have a great snack.
28. Mini Chicken Pot Pies
I’m a fan of this recipe too because it is a quick way to get a warm meal in your family while they are on the run.
So you can make this dish with canned chicken, biscuits, and canned veggies too. Then pack them in a travel container and eat something good on the way out of the door.
29. Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas
This is another great dish that is quick to make, and you can use canned chicken. You just need to douse the canned chicken with hot sauce.
Then fill the wrap with your buffalo chicken mixture. Finally, you cook it and enjoy it. It is quick to throw together and great to eat on the run or in a hurry too.
30. 8 Can Mexican Chicken Soup
This is another recipe that literally calls for canned chicken. Again, there is no having to figure out how to substitute. You just follow the recipe.
Plus, this soup is meant to be one that can be thrown together in a hurry, as almost everything is from a can in the recipe.
31. Chicken Cakes
You are going to make a chicken mixture that gets breaded so it turns into a delicious little chicken cake.
Then you make a tasty sauce to go over the top of it. It reminds me a lot of a crab cake only with chicken. So it would be a great recipe to mix canned chicken with instead of freshly cooked chicken.
32. Seven Can Chicken Taco Soup
This soup recipe is another one that calls for canned chicken. Everything in the ingredients list is pretty much from a can.
So it is meant to be a quick soup that you can whip together on a cold day. But it looks really filling too.
So you now have over 30 recipes that canned chicken would fit very well into each recipe. Hopefully, this will save you time and also help you to utilize some of those cans of chicken that are hiding out in your pantry.
But I’m curious, how do you use your canned chicken? Do you like canned chicken, or are you particular (like me?)
