Helpful hints

  • Grilling is the preferred method of cooking. This recipe is not as tasty if chicken is baked in the oven.
  • Cooking sherry and cooking wine are high in sodium. Do not substitute for the dry sherry in this recipe.
  • This recipe may be included in a lower protein diet, but a smaller portion may be required. Check with your dietitian for assistance.
