Tinned Fillings - Flavoured Chicken

Fortunately/Unfortunately, I live with a bodybuilder. Not only is my pantry filled with cans of flavoured tuna, it is also full of cans of flavoured chicken. Unlike flavoured tuna, flavoured chicken varieties are somewhat limited, to plain/smoked, chilli, mayonnaise and red curry. The two most popular brands stocked at my local supermarket are Chop Chop and Heinz.

Surprisingly canned chicken is not as bad as you would think. It does look like real chicken. Taste wise, it tastes like chicken, albeit a bit salty. Then again, tinned tuna, does not taste as good as fresh tuna.

The important thing is that it tastes good in a toastie and is therefore worthy of a spot in this month’s recipes.

Flavoured Chicken

Makes: 2 toasties

  • 2 x 85g tins of chicken(any flavour)
  • 4 slices of bread
  • butter (optional)

  1. If using butter, butter one side of each of the four slices of bread.
  2. Place one slice of bread onto the bottom grill plate of a pre-heated toasted sandwich maker. If using butter, place butter side down.
  3. Spoon the contents of one 85g tin of chicken onto the centre of the bread.
  4. Place the top piece of bread on top of the filling. If using butter, place butter side up.
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 for the other grill plate
  6. Gently close the lid and allow to toast for approximately 3 minutes, or until the bread has browned sufficiently.

  • Depending of the flavour of chicken, I may add some Cheddar cheese or chopped fresh tomato.
