Helpful hints

  • Chik’n and chick’n are terms used in vegetarian chicken substitute products. The primary ingredient is soy protein. Look in the freezer section of your grocery store.
  • Choose low-sodium broth that does not have salt or potassium chloride in the ingredient list.
  • Do not overcook or noodles will become soggy.
