Helpful hints

  • Cindy says “My husband and I love this dish. It is easy and quick, taking only about 10 minutes to prepare.”
  • Use sugar-free maple syrup to lower carbohydrates if you have diabetes. Carbohydrate is reduced to 10 grams and carbohydrate count is 1/2.
  • Buy large chicken breasts if you are on a dialysis diet and need high protein. Recipe analyzed with four 5-ounce chicken breasts.
  • For CKD non-dialysis on a lower protein diet, reduce the serving size to 1/2 chicken breast or weigh the portion according to your meal plan.
