AbstractProduction and consumption of chicken in Puerto Rico has been increasing. The amount of imported chicken, however, is still too-high. To provide alternatives that can be used to diversity and increase local poultry production, convenience canned products were developed. These included fricassee, patties, meatballs in tomato sauce, stewed gizzards and a base concentrate for rice dishes. Results indicated that the products developed were rated acceptable by the taste panel. This is indicative that the canned chicken products developed were good quality foods that thus have a market potential. Since these products were formulated as high quality foods, production costs are high.
