    I just dropped DS to his dad, and XDP says, "I bought you a present. They were on special so I thought we could give it a try", and hands me two cans of chicken! He couldn't understand why I was freaking out. Weird coincidence, but I've got them in my hot little hand.

    I was so intreged by this that I brought some canned chicken (chop chop brand) and I have to say it wasn't bad.

    I wouldn't buy it again cos its like almost $30 per kilo and its not super nice, but it wasn't gross. It was pure chicken breast chunks - nothing wierd or gross about it.

    But to me it tasted like tin tuna - which made me realise that tin tuna probably doesn't actually taste like tuna. If tin tuna and tin chicken taste to similar, I think they mostly take like 'tin' IYKWIM.

    Anyway, really wasn't all that bad - DH and I would definatley use them if we went camping or something liek that and i totally get how they could be handy for OP on a quick meal break. The ingredients in teh one I brought were chicken, springwater, salt and oil.

    Rubbish. It's chicken breast, packed in spring water, sealed in a can and then heat treated. The heat treatment seals it, kills any bacteria and cooks the chicken. Is chicken breast unhealthy??? Of course not. It is no more unhealthy than tuna in spring water in a can.

    I actually like it and it makes a great alternative when making myself a salad to using tuna. I would much prefer to use the canned variety, than left over cooked chicken when pregnant as the risk of nasties is much much lower in the canned variety. I had it for lunch today actually.

    Just putting another thing to worry about out there - my naturopath told me to stay off all tin food while pregnant ( actually pregnant or not) as most contain BPA,s , John West apparently has very high levels, so try make sure you find BPA free cans !

    its the plastic lining of the tin that will have BPA not the actual tin itself. So if its just a plain tin without a plastic lining inside or on lid it 'should' be ok.

    LOL.. I do that with tuna sometimes, especially the "homebrand" tuna, it just reminds me of catfood.. enough said

    As for the original question about the chicken in a can being safe, if it's 100% natural chicken breast there shouldn't be a prob. I've had it on a salad roll once and it tasted fine. If they can can fish, why not chicken? It's all flesh.. (eew, I know, but it's true!)
    Good on you for being healthy! Good luck
