Anyone have good recipes using canned ingredients? I'm particularly interested in entrees/main courses. I'm thinking of things using canned chicken, tuna, salmon etc., other than salads.

I've seen the recipe videos at YouTube "Can Power", and I'm looking for more.

I make this all the time using canned diced tomatoes.

brown some onions and garlic with a little oil for 10 minutes over med-lo.
Turn heat to med/med-hi, add chicken thighs and brown lightly for another ten minutes. (this is just to get them hot).

Add enough diced/chopped tomatoes (2 cans) to cover + 1 inch (I'd drain the canned stuff bit), some oregano, rosemary, thyme and basil (lots of it) or "Italian Seasoning" salt pepper to taste. Give the mess a good stir and place on med-hi until pressure cooker starts to whistle. Reduce heat to low, (but enough to keep pressure up) and cook twenty minutes, shaking once or twice.

If no pressure cooker, use low/med-lo stovetop for 1.5 - 2 hours, covered, stirring very gently once or twice. (better in a dutch oven in the oven at 375)

Optional -- diced bell peppers (for color)
finely chopped carrots and celery with onions.


When done, the chicken should be falling off the bones. That's why you don't stir too hard -- it should just make it onto the plate before falling off.

I serve over rice, but I don't think that's Italian... <g>

Can't say I have. Got any ideas?
