with some sauce of your choice mixed in (BBQ, A1, hot sauce, etc.) its quite tasty.

No its ready to eat in the can, its much like a can of tuna, only well....chicken

$1.33? Wow, I've never seen those kind of prices where I'm at. $2.99 is considered on sale around here. Still cant beat the $.99/lb for ground turkey though.

Those numbers don't add up (328 kcals for the macros you list). And the can is 6oz, not 12. $1.33/can comes out to about $3.54 a pound. I can get decent cut of beef for that, and boneless skinless chicken breast for $1.99 a pound. Not really cheap. All this without the added salt.
Now it IS easy and portable, but I'll stick with tuna.

Now, if it really IS a 12oz can, I'll have to check in on it. But I doubt it.

I've been buying turkey breast for 99 cents a pound. Can't beat that.

Canned chicken is going to be more then fresh. It is good for convience but I'll just bake up a bunch of breast and package it myself for a week.

False,

As I said regarding the picture, it was merely used to describe the can of Chicken as I couldnt find an image of the Wal-Mart 12oz. can via google images.

The Wal-Mart near my house carries 12oz. cans with the approx. macros above listed on the label, under the Wal-Mart Brand...

On sale for 1.33$

Emphasis added.


But on the other hand, the canned chicken promotes bloat. Sodium FTW.

I feel left out. No Wal-mart near me.

This would be a cornerstone of my collegiate diet. Along with bacon. 2lbs for $5 at Ralphs.

I think you can get these a little cheaper at Costco...$7.39 for a 6-pack last time I checked. Taste gets really old fast though.

Whats the sodium content?

Something like 4000 kg for every 12 oz... think about that lol.

I like it... this seems like something a lazy student would enjoy.
