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.

I bought a few tins of chicken and it was gross! Then I looked at where it was made and it said Thailand... Turned me off big time!!

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 !

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
