This was especially good. I substituted chicken breasts, but next time will use the thighs. I added a little of the following: Thyme, Garlic Powder, Parsley, Basil, and Paprika as I thought it needed more flavor. My husband, daughter, and grandson all loved it. I ate less of the carrots to reduce the potassium. I am using many of the recipes.

I added 1 tsp minced garlic and 1 tsp minced ginger to bump up the flavor. Worked out well. However I am not a fan of chicken thighs...can I sub in boneless/skinless breasts?? Does this change the nutrition values? A good recipe, but depending on your crock pot you may have to change the cooking time so you don't have dry chicken. Dietitian comment:You can sub chicken breasts with about the same protein, potassium and phosphorus. Fat content will be lower.

Thanks. Dietitian comment: Reduce carrots to 1 cup and celery to 2 stalks. Good. Sauce doesn't hold up freezing though.

This recipe is very high in potassium and sodium. For a person with a problem with potassium, this recipe is a NO-NO. Any suggestion on how to substitute ingredients. Dietitian comment: Considering that this recipe is almost a complete meal with the addition of some rice, the potassium and sodium are in an acceptable range. You could decrease the portion or reduce the amount of the vegetables to decrease potassium.

Is fat free cream cheese kidney friendly/ Dietitian comment: It can be included in small amounts but in general, fat free cream cheese is higher in sodium than regular (144 vs. 90 mg/2 tablespoons) and the phosphorus content is considerably higher (90 vs. 20 mg/2 tablespoons). Compare brands to make the best choice.

May I use Tofuti cream cheese (a soy base) and not change the numbers to much? Son has total dairy allergy. Dietitian comment: The calories, protein, sodium and potassium are comparable. I was unable to find phosphorus content but the label indicates 'not a significant source of phosphorus'.
