Chicken of the Sea No Drain Tuna - Review

Using a patented process, Chicken of the Sea No Drain Tuna contains solid, steak-like tuna in every easy-to-open can, without containing any messy juices. High in protein and low in calories and fat, this new tuna is a healthy and convenient addition to any pantry.  It is available in four varieties - Solid Light Tuna, Solid White Albacore Tuna, Solid Light Tuna, Lemon Pepper, and Solid Light Tuna - Thai Chili.  Chicken of the Sea No Train Tuna is a great option for a grab-and-go lunch or during downtime because there is no need for a can opener, no risk of spilling tuna juice, and it's a natural source of lean protein and heart-healthy Omega-3s.

Of the four varieties available, I tried Solid Light Tuna.  Rather than having to use a can opener, it has a tab to pull back and open the top.  I don't necessarily mind having to drain juices from cans but it's rather convenient when I don't have to.  I like the flavor of tuna and I equate Chicken of the Sea as a high-quality brand for tuna.  With the two cans of Solid Light Tuna I received, I mixed the tuna with a little bit of mayonnaise and diced eggs to make yummy sandwiches at work.

Chicken of the Sea is currently featuring a coupon on its Facebook page good for $0.50 off any No Drain Tuna purchase. 
Here's a recipe using Chicken of the Sea No Drain Tuna.  I'm going to be making this recipe sometime soon.  I think it's something my entire family will enjoy.

Tuna Triangles

Ingredients

1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
3 Tablespoons mayonnaise OR salad dressing
2 cups all-purpose biscuit mix
1/2 cup milk

In separate bowl, mix biscuit mix and milk until soft dough forms; beat vigorously for 30 seconds. Turn onto surface well dusted with biscuit mix; roll in biscuit mix to coat. Knead 10 times. Roll dough into 18 x12-inch rectangle; cut into 6 squares. Spread tuna mixture over a triangular half of each square. Fold dough over tuna mixture, shaping into a triangle. Press edges with fork to seal. Place on greased baking sheet. Brush tops of triangles with butter; sprinkle with celery seed. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with a cheese spread, if desired. Makes 6 servings.

This sounds like a great alternative to bring as lunch to work! I don't mind the "juices" when at home-but it would be really nice to just pop the lid and eat as is at work!! I will be looking for this in my local supermarket!!

I agree with the other comments, I love the pull tab. Great for work or on the go. I love tuna casserole so I might like this recipe. Thanks for the info!

I do quite enjoy my tuna! :)

My boyfriend and his roommates are grossed out when I eat it though cause I eat it straight up out of the can. Lol

Those tuna triangles sound pretty darn good though!

I saw your review and snagged some of these cans over the weekend...they are pretty awesome :) I still have the regular cans to use here at home, but I love that there is no splatter or juice all over the counter. (or my desk at work!)
