    Canned chicken comes in small tins similar to tuna. It is usually
    mixted chicken pieces in water. It is good for making chicken salad,
    sandwiches, appetizers as well as a useful emergency food item. You can
    make a better quality of canned chicken if you use chicken breasts,
    broth, and home can it. Here's a link for home canning chicken or rabbit.

    One school I attended served chicken a la king over waffles for lunch.

    I was at ex-b/f's house one time and for supper he had made a chicken
    dish, not a la king, but something in a sort of cream sauce. They
    served it over waffles and I thought how gross can you get! But I got
    to thinking about it, it's just bread that's been cooked in a waffle
    iron. Anyway, it was surprisingly good! I drew the line at sprinkling
    powdered sugar over the chicken and waffles, though. They seemed to
    relish this dish with the powdered sugar.

    When I was growing up in the 1950s, my mom used to serve cream chicken or
    chicken a la king over waffles. Seems like back then that waffles were
    used for much more than breakfast. My favorites were her dessert waffles,
    though, chocolate and gingerbread, always served with ice cream.

    Chicken and waffles is common in PA Dutch country I seem to recall? It
    is also served in a very well known Soul Food place in Atlanta.

    I thought the soul food version was fried chicken and waffles.

    Yup, this was in PA Dutch country. Wonder where the powdered sugar
    idea came from?

    I keep David around because he can lift things and reach the stuff on the top
    shelf.

    he has his reasons for keeping me around as well...

    Persia turns her nose up at tuna. When I was adopted by her the vet gave me
    worm pills "just in case" and told me to hide them in bits of canned tuna.
    She sniffed it and turned her nose up. Nope, no tuna. Since her bladder
    surgery in 2004 she can only eat prescription cat food and she *begs* me for
    it. You'd think she's starving half the time. We know better, don't we? ;)

    I am sure this is very good, and after reading the recipe I think I
    may try it... but just the title gives me the heebejeebeis...
    When you eat Chiken a la king the first time in an MRE (military food)
    its not so bad, but when your in the field and you endup eating it
    numerous times... it becomes one of the worst possible selections...
