  2. Pour chicken broth in a large stock pot; bring to a boil.

Helpful hints

  • Make a batch and eat soup all week, or cut recipe in half to make a smaller batch.
  • Low-sodium broth contains 140 mg sodium or less per cup. Look for Campbell’s® low-sodium broth, Health Valley® low-sodium broth or Nature’s Choice® low-sodium broth. Avoid low-sodium broth with potassium chloride — it is very high in potassium.

This is a great recipe, some times I used the canned chicken, to make it faster and cheaper, it is quick and easy.

I would like to use the carcass from my home roasted chicken to make my broth. Will this add phosphorus to the broth? I don't salt my chicken. Dietitian comment: Yes there will be some phosphorus added as it leaches from the bones of the carcass. The phosphorus content is similar to the amount from canned broth[INVALID]-35-70 mg per cup.

Can you use the carcass from the rotisserie chicken to make the broth or would that have too much sodium when done? Before CKD I always made chicken soup using the carcass leftovers and I would add celery carrots and onions for flavor. Not sure if that is safe to do anymore. Thanks! Dietitian comment: I have occasionallyfound rotisserrie chicken without added seasoning, so the sodium is lower. Since there probably is some added salt or hig sodium seasonings I suggest count the broth as reduced sodium but not sodium free.

Like so many of the other comments, this soup went over very well with my husband. I'm keeping it on my list for future meals. Thanks so much for doing the research on what is necessary for a renal diet. It helps me feel more comfortable with what I'm preparing at mealtime.

My mom just started dialysis and has always been a salt lover. So I thought this may be a hard sell. Well, she loved it. I froze the rest in individual servings and froze them for days she is alone and can't cook. I will make this again.

Made the soup for my husband and he loved it. I am going to add kale to it this time to be a little thicker.

Thanks for the warning about the Wylers Sodium Free broth. Too often the trade-offs aren't the best choices either.

I used Wylers instant SODIUM FREE broth mix instead. just as good and NO SODIUM! Moderator comment: A word of caution--Wylers sodium free broth, like many low sodium products, substitutes potassium chloride instead of sodium chloride. 1 teaspoon contains 500 mg potassium so this substitution is not recommended if you are on a low potassium kidney diet. Always read the ingredients to be sure.
