    Im trying to make a Chicken Bacon Ranch pizza and the only chicken I have is Tysons canned chunk chicken. The date on the bottom of the can says 'best if used by Feb 17 201' and then the last number I cant really read. Im not sure if its a 0 or a 1. Do you think its still good to use? What if it did say 2010, would it still be okay to use? Im always iffy with things like this.

    Well I didnt die. [​IMG] The pizza was okay. It had that canned chicken taste though. If I had any other chicken in the house I would have used it, but the canned stuff was all I had and I really wanted that pizza! lol
