Helpful hints

  • Serve over rice or rice noodles.
  • Two cooked chicken breasts yield approximately 8 ounces.
  • To reduce potassium to 290 mg substitute 4 cups of shredded green cabbage for the broccoli slaw.
  • Hoisin sauce is usually found in the Chinese or Asian food section of most grocery stores. It is high in sodium—limit the amount used.

In recipe the hoisin sauce is 1/4 cup. In directions is 1/3 cup. What is it supposed to be? How much salt if 1/3 cup. Thanks... Looks like a good easy recipe. Dietitian comment: Good catch[INVALID]the correct amount is 1/4 cup. If you use 1/3 cup the sodium content is 472 mg per serving.
