What do you do when you get 40 lbs of chicken breast at 1.19 a pound?
First you cook it, covered with salted water, in a crockpot, or a large pot on the stove, just until starting to turn white. (I know this picture looks gross) Then take out each chicken breast, remove any fat or gristle,cut it in chunks and pack tightly in a pint jar. Pour the water from the chicken pot over the packed chicken. Put on lids and rings, pressure can at 15# (if you're above 1000 feet, if not, then it's 10#) for 65 minutes.
That's what I did Friday night. I got 36 pints of chicken chunks and to fill up my last batch in the canner, I had 5 pints of chicken broth.
This may look like a strange science project, but it's really good and good to have on hand. It's so convenient to open up a jar and make chicken enchiladas, chicken soups, chicken salad, chicken quesadillas, barbecued chicken sandwiches, or almost any recipe that uses chicken. Compare the price of canned chicken in the store to this home canned chicken. You'll find you've saved lots of money! You'll also discover that canning season is NEVER over!
