How to pressure can chicken

One day I decided to learn how to pressure can chicken. I had bought some chicken tenders that were on sale and instead of vacuum sealing them and freezing them, I wanted to make them shelf stable. I decided to marinate them first and let them sit overnight.

I grabbed some jars out of the pantry

and my funnel

Image

I cold packed the chicken, I personally like to cut out a step of cooking the meat first, the time and temp in the pressure canner will take care of that

Image

I wiped the rims and grabbed a lid out of my pan of simmering water

Image

I hand tightened a band on the jar

Image

and processed the jars for 90 min at 11 lbs

Image

after letting them cool down, I wiped the jars and set them in the pantry

next time I won’t marinate the chicken, the meat gives off a lot of liquid during the canning process. Other than that it came out awesome and we use it for Alfredo and stir fry’s, it works great for them.

Here is a good website for instructions for canning different types of meat
