I want to bring in some cooked chicken breasts in sealed packing to Canada. I will have these chicken breasts cooked at home and then have them packed in sealed packaging that is good for up to 1 year. The products, because they will be home prepared, will not have any labeling that identifies the product or its ingredients (although I can probably arrange that if required). The ingredients will only be chicken, garlic, lemon juice and yogurt.
Can I bring this into Canada for personal consumption? The total chicken cooked will not be more than 4-5 KG weight in total perhaps and I will declare it on arrival into Canada.
I have called the food inspection agency and CBSA but all they did was to read an operational manual which did provide some information such as that the item (chicken) itself is NOT prohibited from my country of origin. So I have that answer; however, my exact question (paragraph 2 above) has yet to be answered. Can someone please provide some insight?
If it helps, my country of origin is a developing country and cooked chicken is permitted into Canada from here.
