Helpful hints

  • No liquid or fat needs to be added. Chicken will make its own liquid/broth.
  • To make chicken soup from leftovers, add egg noodles, low sodium broth, carrot shreds and celery to remaining chicken and broth.
  • Leftovers also make great chicken salad.
  • If you are on a lower protein diet, adjust the portion to match your meal plan.
