Make a Quick and Easy Lunch with Chicken of the Sea No Drain Tuna

Chicken of the Sea No Drain Tuna

A little over a year and a half ago, I found out that I am prone to dangerously low blood sugar and have a rapid heart rate. It took mysteriously passing out not just once, but three times in a row in the middle of a crowded establishment, an ambulance ride, and an all-night trip to the emergency room to inform me that as healthy as you may think you are, it can change very quickly. As a result, my fiance educated himself (and then me) about how to maintain a healthy blood sugar level and keep a heart as healthy as possible. The key for me has been four small meals and two snacks a day that are heart healthy and low in calories.

I have started to utilize canned tuna a lot more often lately. Sometimes I forget that tuna is a great protein that can be incorporated into many different recipes, plus it’s low in calories and has many health benefits. As an added bonus, it keeps well. In fact, I almost always have a spare can in the cupboard, ready to be taken out for a quick meal whenever the mood strikes. With so many small meals and snacks being prepared daily, meal planning can become especially difficult, so the versatility of tuna is definitely a big plus for me when I’m feeling bored with everything in the kitchen.

For many people, canned tuna can immediately evoke images of spilled juices that get on the counter tops, the sink, your hands, and then everything you touch until you can wash them thoroughly. Even after a good scrub, the smell can stick. Chicken of the Sea has re-imagined the world of canned today as we know it. The result is their new Chicken of the Sea No Drain Tuna, which using a patented process, requires no draining and produces no mess.

I was recently able to try out new Chicken of the Sea No Drain Tuna in Solid Light Tuna and Solid Light Tuna Thai Chili flavors. Both cans contain two servings each and are 70 calories a serving.

For a truly simple snack, I like to mix in about a teaspoon of mayonnaise into a can of tuna, sprinkle it with salt and pepper, and use it to top crackers. It is also really great in beautiful, leafy green salads for lunch.

I never had flavored canned tuna before and was honestly apprehensive about the Thai Chili flavor I received. However, I quickly got over that apprehension when I opened the can and tried a small piece of it. It tasted just light regular tuna, but just a little sweeter. The regular Solid Light Tuna is the same great tuna you can expect from Chicken of the Sea.

Chicken of the Sea has a variety of No Drain Tuna recipes, including Change-of-Pace Tuna Casserole for an easy dinner, and Tuscan Tuna Melt Flatbread Pizza.

  1. Sounds great. I’m a big fish person. We have tuna often as a go-to snack since its great with helping to manage my mom’s blood sugar. I will have to try the Thai Chili flavor. If you liked that – try the Starkist flavored tunas in the pouch too. They’re pretty good. We usually just stick to canned though since the pouches are a little more expensive. Being unemployed at the moment, every cent counts.

    1. I have never had tuna from the pouch before, but Sunkist flavored tuna sounds delicious. I’ll have to give it a try. Thanks for the recommendation!

  2. No-drain tuna!!! I’m so excited! I love tuna, but that lingering juice that manages to get on everything is so annoying. I feel like going to the grocery store now, like RIGHTNOW 😀
