Swanson’s is challenging Picky Palate and 4 other great bloggers to a contest to see who can generate the most comments for a chance to win a very cool prize…… read on 🙂

Swanson’s Premium Chicken launched a larger size can of chicken at about the same price of it’s predecessor. To help spread the word about the great value of the new size of chicken, Swanson has challenged Picky Palate to a $10 Dinner Challenge. Check out my BBQ Chicken Pizza Soup recipe HERE. I love it, it’s a great $10 Dinner 🙂

Here are some reasons you will love the new size of Swanson’s chicken…

  • Better Value- You can now get a 12.5 ounce portion of your favorite all white premium chunk chicken (28% more) for about the same price as the 10oz can. This is equivalent to 1.5 cups of cooked chicken.
  • Convenience– Swanson offers consumers the convenience of fully cooked, all white chicken breast. It saves time and is a great shortcut ingredient for dinner.
  • Quality Meals– Swanson Chunk Chicken Breast is 100% all white meat, 98% fat free, contains no preservatives and is the only branded canned chicken certified Heart Healthy by the American Heart Association.

So, the giveaway is for 4 coupons for Free Swanson’s Chicken AND…..If we generate the most comments out of the other 4 blogs I will win the challenge and the $250 Gift Card!!

    Cafe Rio type salad with shredded chicken and creamy tomatillo dressing. When we make it at home we call it ‘Cafe Mio’

  3. Chicken Vegetable Soup is another great way to try chicken in the cold season of the year. Economical because you can use leftover bits of vegetables. Easy too.

  4. Caro

    well, i pretty much add chicken to every pasta recipe! especially macaroni and cheese. parmesan-breaded chicken on baked mac & cheese is heaven.

  5. Chicken Alfredo. Great on pasta for one night, then great as a homemade pizza the next night! I love killing two meals with one stone!

  6. A quick and easy chicken dinner I make all the time is poppy seed chicken. Cook shredded chicken with olive oil and seasonings, layer in pan. Mix sour cream and cream chicken soup, spread over chicken. Mix ritz crackers, poppy seeds, and butter- top it off. Bake and enjoy!! πŸ™‚ Yummy!

  7. Renee

    I like sticky lemon chicken with garlic, thyme, sherry vinegar, soy sauce, honey and lemon – quick and easy!

  8. Debbie R.

    This time of year in Florida, we always like a nice light dish that doesn’t take a whole lot of time in the kitchen with the oven on! I love to add chicken to a fresh, crisp salad and have dinner ready in a snap!

  9. Renee

    chicken packets – chicken, cream cheese and whatever veggies you want baked in packets made with refrigerated crescent rolls – the kids love these!

  10. Misty

    The easiest and tastiest recipe we always use is Chicken California. It’s white gravy, chicken, cheese and any veggie I have on hand rolled up in a tortilla and baked. So delicious!

    one of my absolute favorites is curry chicken salad with toasted almonds and grapes – yummy! (and quick and easy)

  13. Chicken taquitos are also a big hit. Just add a little cumin, green chilies, cheese & chicken into a tortilla roll up, spray with cooking spray and bake.

  14. I do a chicken and rice dish with minute rice, canned chicken, cream of chicken soup, onion, dried celery, and a few other seasonings. It is definitely one of those comfort food that the whole family enjoys.

    One of my favorite chicken recipes is chicken divan. A great way to get my family to eat broccoli! I use the Swanson canned chicken to save time. It’s delicious too!

  17. another swanson chicken thing I’ve made for years..take a can of chicken and heat it (and get it kinda toasty) in a pan with some butter, salt, pepper and garlic. Then take some canned biscuits and make like biscuit pockets with them and a piece of cheese on the inside too and just bake until the biscuit is done. So good and so easy!

  18. really generic but my FAVORITE chicken salad is just swanson chicken and miracle whip-the end. seriously..no apples or grapes or nuts to get in the way just the good chicken and the good miracle whip!

    Spicky chicken tacos. Chicken chunks with mexican seasonings and spices, along with cheddar cheese and the usual taco fixins.

  21. Chicken tacos or chicken enchiladas. I always think enchiladas are a lot of work until I make then. Then I realize they are a quick and easy meal!

  22. One of my favorite go to chicken recipes is chicken crescent squares. I usually just have cooked chicken in the freezer that I pull out the night before but this would be so much easier.

  27. Chicken Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches – cooked chicken cut in strips mixed together with sauteed onions and green bell peppers…served on sandwich rolls with melted cheese on top. πŸ™‚

  28. Chicken Alfredo…one layer of cooked pasta, a layer of cooked chicken and two jars of alfredo sauce, baked for an hour. Yummy! Last night we got home late so I didn’t have time to put it in the oven…so I just heated everything on the stove and mixed it together. It still tasted great!
