Hello, and welcome.
These items are not on the 'prohibited list', so, yes, you can take multiple cans of 14 ounce unopened tuna or chicken in checked luggage. However, if the metal from the cans should cause any security equipment to alarm, keep in mind that they might be confiscated from your luggage or you might need additional screening.
