Food Prepping

I wanted to write this post in relation to the Zycon chicken event going on.  So we are going to be heading out in the morning to get our chicken.  The question is what is the best way to store/preserve our chicken.

We will  be freezing some as this is the easiest method.  We will also be canning some.  Canning chicken is a great way to preserve it.  My wife really enjoy’s grilled chicken salad sandwiches.  So canning chicken is a great way to have the chicken available whenever you want to whip up some chicken salad.  The other dish we like to make with canned chicken is Chicken wing dip. The recipe we use is the one right on the bottle of Frank’s Red Hot

SERVINGS: 4 cups dip

1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup FRANK’S® REDHOT® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce or FRANK’S® REDHOT® Buffalo Wings Sauce
1/2 cup blue cheese or ranch dressing
2 cups shredded cooked chicken.
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese or your favorite shredded cheese

PREHEAT oven to 350°F.
COMBINE all ingredients in a 1-quart baking dish.
BAKE 20 min. or until mixture is heated through; stir. Serve with crackers or vegetables.

Now writing this I think I might have to make some on after we get our chicken tomorrow…
One thing to think about is the fact that using Tattler Reusable Canning Lids are a great way to make your buck go a bit further.  We are big fans of canning.  There are great advantages to canning over other methods of food preservation.  When you can food it is basically ready to eat straight from the jar.  Generally all you have to do with canned food is heat it, which isn’t even necessary in most cases.Until next time, stay safe and warm.-Survivalguy

I am an avid outdoorsman. I have been outdoors since I was a kid. I was in Boy Scouts until we moved during my junior year of high school. At which point I was Life rank starting to work toward Eagle. I have been camping, hunting, fishing, hiking as long as I can remember. I have done presentations and workshops with groups ranging from children to adults. I have done several presentations/demonstrations in regards to fire making and knot tying (most popular) and many other topics. I have worked with a variety of scouts and leaders. We had a preparedness group where we would discuss various topics related to being prepared, canning, gardening, natural disasters, etc. I truly enjoy sharing the knowledge I have with others.
