Helpful hints

  • No liquid or fat needs to be added. Chicken will make its own liquid/broth.
  • Use the chicken in recipes that call for cooked chicken, or to make chicken salad or chicken soup.
  • Make chicken broth with the bones and skin.
  • To make chicken soup, add egg noodles, low sodium broth, carrot shreds and celery to diced chicken and broth.
  • If you are on a lower protein diet, adjust the portion to match your meal plan.
