Helpful hints

  • Complete this meal with a serving or rice, green beans, French bread, margarine or butter and a baked apple for dessert.
  • Use leftover chicken breasts in a chicken salad or sandwich for lunch the next day.
  • Look for reduced-sodium broth containing 500 milligrams sodium or less per 1-cup serving Recommended brands include Health Valley® No Salt, Fat Free Chicken Broth (1-800-423-4846), Kitchen Basics® Natural Chicken Stock and Swanson® 50% Less Sodium Chicken Broth.  Low-sodium broth is also a good choice. It contains less than 140 milligrams sodium per cup. Avoid low-sodium broth that contains potassium chloride—it’s very high in potassium
  • If you are on a protein-restricted diet, ask your dietitian for advice on the correct portion size for your individual diet.
