MMM, Chicken in Water!

I like Chicken. Sometimes I buy a raw whole one from the supermarket. Other times I buy it ready cooked so I can just nom down on it as soon as I get back. So, when I discovered that Hormel produce this product I was skeptical but intrigued. As I said I like chicken, and I am partial to water so surely I would like chicken preserved in water. When the tins arrived I had my can opener ready and waiting. I polished the tin off and felt I had satisfied my poultry needs for the day. To summarise, if you like chicken and you like water then you should have no problems with this product.

Also, don’t forget that you get 12 tins. So if Bobby, Lisa Marie, Jayden, Kaitlin, Maggie, Ellie, Joanie, Ritchie, Phil and Laura all need feeding as well as yourself and Mummy/Daddy then that’s your evening meal sorted in one pop – easy.

Not much meat in thee can

Well it is sad to say this, because Amazon is usually a plus.
The weight here is mostly WATER. The meat is real small pieces.
Only fit for a cat.

Don’t Expect to Eat it by Itself…

There’s just simply not a lot of taste in this chicken, but it still has a lot of positives. It doesn’t taste bad (or really like anything), it’s already cooked so it can very quickly be heated up and eaten (always a plus), and has a relatively long shelf life (my “best by” gave me a little over two years). But you better plan to add some sort of sauces to this chicken because simply doing something like steaming it with some veggies is going to leave you with no flavor whatsoever.

My two tips: if you like stir fry, this works well with some soy sauce and assorted veggies. If you like more traditional, go with a good tasting BBQ sauce that can give the chicken some flavor.

5/5 for convenience. 3/5 for taste (or lack of). 4/5 altogether.

Hormel White & Dark Chicken in Water, 95% Fat Free, 5-Ounce Cans (Pack of 12)

I bought this product to see if it would be useful for preparing meals for one. I used it to make an egg noodle, chicken, cream sauce dish. The can size was just about the proper amount of chicken for my dish. Was able to make a nice single serve entree. To bad the chicken was about tasteless. Parts of the chicken contents were tough and stringy. I think the ‘fat free’ processing caused the lack of taste. I gave a can of the chicken a ride in a food processor to make a chicken salad. Took a lot of seasoning and the addition of onion, pickle, etc. to produce any taste. The chicken just served as the carrier of the other ingredients.
The cats aren’t thrilled with it either.
The shipping was prompt and the goods arrived damage free.
