Update Please note per my information below product description and photo are no longer accurate. The product has a sealed lid, not a “pop-top lid” and the amount of protein and sodium have changed. See below for the correct information. I have notified Amazon of this error. Somehow 5 grams of protein have been “lost” from the can contents.

I purchased the 4.5 ounce can of Swanson white premium



chunk chicken breast on sale at CVS – buy one, get one free for $3.00 ($1.50 per can). This large size can 12-pack works out to be a better deal even though it's not a sale price and subscribing to purchase this product on a schedule reduces the price per can even more.

I am wondering if the person who commented that the meat was a mixture of white and dark meat ordered or received the wrong product since there is a similar product available for a lower price that is a blend of white and dark meat. This 9.75 ounce net weight can contains all white meat and just the right amount of broth that's easy to drain off or use. The chicken looks appealing and it tastes mild and flavorful. It is great for making chicken salad sandwiches or for adding to soup or any other food item. The




meat flakes into small pieces easily, so you may not want to add it to your soup stock until just before you are ready to serve it. It would also make a good filling for enchiladas, tortillas or quesadillas. I have no problems at all with the taste or texture of this product. It is appealing when you open the can and it would work well for many recipes or quick meals or snacks. For those who don't like tuna, it's a great alternative.

Basically, it's chicken when you need it ready to go, and it is a good source of protein with very little fat. One can contains 5 servings with each serving containing 50 calories, 9 grams of protein, 1 gram of fat, 25 mg of cholesterol (8% of DV), 1 gm of carbohydrate and 260 grams of sodium(does that include the broth?). If sodium is a




concern, consider adjusting the amount of salt that you add to your recipe or maybe you could even lightly rinse the drained chicken in a strainer.

It's certainly better than buying luncheon meat and keeping it for too long! It's fresh when you need it. I have a couple of cans stored in my refrigerator now. This chicken contains no MSG and no artificial flavor – just less than 2% food starch and sodium phosphates.(okay sodium phosphates may not appeal to some)

Update:

Just opened another can and added it to a healthy variation of macaroni and cheese.

I haven't tried the concoction yet, but the chicken looked wonderful when I opened the can – appealing light pink color and chunky bits of meat like baked chicken breast.
