Chicken soup might be a good starter chicken. Poach a breast in broth, cut into small chunks, simmer with whatever vegetables you like, like chopped onion, carrot, celery in storebought chicken broth. Many variations, but that's a basic start.

Here's a pic of Dixie Fry mix. You may have to order it online. I tried McCormicks seasoned mix for fried chicken. It was very bland tasting compared to Dixie Fry. It's tasty whether you deep fry or oven fry chicken. I coat my chicken pieces in it, skillet fry it in oil for a few minutes, then transfer the pieces to the oven. The pieces get darker and richer looking as they bake.

Canned Meats

IMO, it would be easiest and tastiest to try canned chicken first. Available in white or dark meat, all pre-cooked, safe, fast, and if it's not to your liking, then mess with fresh chicken (ugh).

I'm a fan of canned chicken and I have a dozen qts in the basement pantry. However, the texture of canned chicken is kind of like the texture of canned tuna or beef, while good, it's been processed a fairly long time at a high pressure/temperature, it flakes apart.


A fresh chicken, salted and baked, has a different texture which is also very nice for eating off the bone, with the crispy skin, right out of the oven. It is very easy to bake a chicken, eat the legs and thighs which are richer meat. The breasts may be drier and made into chicken salad (chicken grapes mayo sugar salt almonds celery) or sliced and reheated with some gravy.

Bomb shelter canned whole chicken? Okay I guess. Reminds me of that MASH episode where Margaret and Charles share a can of supposedly delicious whole turkey. A rare treat there, apparently.

Margaret to Charles later on after both start turning green: "We ate a bad bird."
Charles insists it isn't.
Margaret: " We ate a rotten bird, Major."
