These Chicken Breasts are current production over-runs, Manufactured in 2014, from a large military defense contractor. We just purchased a large lot of these direct from a Defense Reutilization Office (DRO) Source.
Although actual use is always classified on these kinds of bids, our information is that these are purchased for Executive Branch use, not for our troops in the field.
That usually means these go to underground bunkers for continuity of government use by strategic military leaders, congressional members and sometimes even white house staff or leadership.
We opened several cans to try these out before we committed to such a large quantity, and these are actually amazing: tender, boneless, gourmet trimmed, very tasty and as fresh as the day they were flash frozen and dehydrated!
This is a shot of the actual product straight from a can that we opened - it is untouched and exactly what you will see when you open one.
Each can contains 12 boneless breasts, and to use just soak in warm or hot tap water for 20 minutes (until the meat feel tender throughout) and cook.
They come out of the can looking just like the chicken breasts that you would get at your grocer's deli - and there was no shrinkage when we cooked them.
We've found that although great with only a 20 minute soak in warm tap water, if you let them sit longer they get even more tender.
You can expect to get 25+ years out of them in the can - and probably as many as 30 to 40 since there is no water or oxygen in the can to spoil them!!
Once opened they will last:
- up to 5 years in the freezer once opened but not re-hydrated
- up to 1 year in a Zip Lock bag with refrigeration once opened but not re-hydrated
- up to 60 days in a zip lock bag without refrigeration once opened, but not re-hydrated.
- up to 5 days in the fridge once they are re-hydrated
