Keystone chicken chunks are 98% lean chicken, 2/3 breast meat and 1/3 thigh meat, domestically raised and processed. 14.5 ounces of fresh chicken (never frozen) is sealed in the BPA-free can with no water added, then slow-cooked in a pressure cooker. Keystone chicken chunks have outstanding taste, texture and tenderness.
Keystone canned chicken chunks contain only two ingredients: Chicken and a small amount of sea salt.
Using Keystone canned chicken is so quick and easy! Because it’s fully pre-cooked, just remove from the can, heat up and serve! Keystone canned chicken is perfect in BBQ, stir fry, tacos, soups, stews, casseroles and more.
You can actually save money with our quality canned meats, even though they cost a little more than refrigerated meats. Surprised? And that's not all; we're also going to explain how Keystone meats do things that regular fresh meat can't. Sound crazy? Well, hear us out...
Imagine being approached by someone who asks you, "Would you like to buy a can of electricity?" That might seem strange, but consider a comparison: The national average cost of electricity is less than ten cents per kilowatt hour. With that ten cents worth of power you can light a 40 watt bulb for 25 hours. Now imagine that a salesman at your door offered to sell you some canned electricity, the same one-kilowatt quantity, "for the bargain price of $3.00." Sounds ridiculous, doesn't it? But people actually do buy quite a bit of canned electricity, which is just another name for batteries.
We wouldn't suggest replacing all the power you get from the wall socket with battery power. But for many uses, "canned electricity" is so useful and convenient you'd probably have a hard time getting along without it. Think about those cans of electricity in your flashlight, portable radio, camera... the list goes on and on. Considering what it can do, in fact, canned electricity actually is a real bargain. And our canned meats offer the very same value, with one big exception: The cost difference between our canned meats and the "uncanned" kind is miniscule compared to the premium we gladly pay for the convenience of canned electricity!
Fresh meat is terrific! You pick some up when you're grocery shopping, put it in your fridge, maybe your freezer, and use it in delicious stir fries, roll-ups, casseroles... burgers on the grill. But then something happens... it's gone! There's more at the store, but the store is there and you're here. Or you need it right now. This conundrum generally has three components: Availability, transportation cost, and time.
Your menu plans call for some meat, and you're fresh out—pardon the pun. Of course it's possible that you never forget to buy enough, but then you probably never lose your keys or misplace your glasses, either. (If this is true, we don't want to hear about it. Really.) For the rest of us, it happens. And when it does, going away to pick up some meat hasn't been factored into our plans and may not be practical. At such times, having a variety of excellent canned meats to select from means you don't have to change plans or do without... you just reach for a can of quality, delicious canned meat, without skipping a beat. Sailboat owners are among our most avid canned meat customers.
Time: It's money, they say. If you know what your time is worth in "dollar terms" you can easily figure out how much an extra trip to the store dings your budget. But time is more than money too. Time is the opportunity to do what you want to for a while... and for most of us, some extra city driving isn't high on our wish list. And there's more: Our meats save you preparation time. There's no trimming or cutting to do, and since they're fully precooked, you just heat and serve!
PREPAREDNESS & SHELF LIFE
We're being advised from many quarters, today, to have some food on hand for one kind of emergency development or another. A variety of circumstances can create a short-term or even long-term need to have food on hand. Food that doesn't require refrigeration, in the event that power goes out for a while. If you don't want to live on beans, macaroni or tofu indefinitely, our canned chicken, canned turkey, canned beef & canned pork will put some great meat on your plate. Our canned meats are guaranteed to remain good-as-new for five years, but customers say they've enjoyed them after far more than five years of storage. The only thing likely to shorten lifespan is attack by outside moisture rusting through the can, and preventing that is as simple as storing the cans in a dry, clean area.
CHOICE OF CAN SIZES
We offer two ways to purchase our quality Keystone canned meats. If you know what you want (maybe you're already back for more), a case is twelve cans with a net weight of either 14.5 ounces or 28 ounces; some natural juices cook out of the meat during pressure cooking, and can be used in your cooking. The 14.5 ounce cans measures 3" in diameter by 3-3/8" tall outside, the 28 ounce cans measure 4" in diameter by 4-3/4" tall on the outside. If you want to try before you order by the case, we offer a sampler pack.
Compare to most other canned meats and you'll find that they use inferior cuts compared to what goes into our product. Another significant difference in all of our canned meats is that they're salted only lightly, not excessively as so many canned goods are.

I've been looking for a quality canned meat product with no fillers added and I’ve found it with Keystone products. I love the taste of the chicken. It is not too salty. I can eat it plain right out of the can or use it in a casserole dish. I’m glad I found PHG and Keystone products!
