Helpful hints

  • Choose the canned chicken lowest in sodium.Melanie uses Keystone Chicken (available at Walmart).
  • Chicken Patties are very similar to salmon or tuna patties, but might be better liked by someone who doesn't care for fish. 
  • Look for Kikkoman brand panko bread crumbs-- the sodium content is lower compared to commercial and generic unseasoned bread crumbs. Unsalted or low-sodium crushed saltines are an acceptable alternative to the bread crumbs.
  •  Variations: instead of patties, form into 24 chicken meatballs. Meatballs could be eaten as a high-protein snack or used with theDaVita.com Roasted Red Pepper Sauce recipe over pasta.
