Helpful hints

  • Serve chicken with grilled summer squash (1/4 of a zucchini and pasta such as bow tie pasta, wagon wheels, small shells or risotto, spooning a small amount of the reduction sauce over the pasta).
  • If you are following a lower protein diet reduce chicken portion to half or to the amount recommended by your dietitian.
    *Note: This is a “cook once, eat twice” recipe. It makes 4 servings for the first dish, and then 4 servings for the second. Alternatively, the full recipe serves 8. Please see Italian Chicken Salad and Grilled Summer Squash recipes on to use this for a cook once, eat twice recipe.
  • Be sure that the broth you use is truly low-sodium, meaning 140 mg sodium or less for a one cup serving. Read the label to ensure that there are no potassium-based salt substitutes, such as potassium chloride, in the broth. Brands vary nationally, but some manufacturers use potassium-based salt substitutes, which patients on a low potassium diet should not use. Ask your renal dietitian for assistance in selecting appropriate brands if needed.
  • Suggested white wines include pinot grigio or sauvignon blanc.

Chicken in Rosemary-Garlic Sauce
MonicaM says:

This recipe was EASY and DELICIOUS! The only thing I would say is the sauce reduction took WAY longer than the recipe stated. Next time I will also double the marinade because my family loved the sauce and after reduction there was barely enough for the chicken. But my family LOVED it and I had fun making it and I am NO CHEF!

I don't understand. Recipes calls for 8 breasts & is supposed to serve 8, but serving size in 1/2 breast. Doesn't that equal 16 servings? Dietitian comment: The actual serving size is 1 chicken breast, not 1/2. The portion has been updated. Thank you!

I would give this ten stars if I could! This was, by far, the best chicken recipe I've ever made! It was devoured by my family, and the only thing left was an endless stream of compliments about it for the rest of the night! I'm looking forward to making it again and again! Thank you so very much!!

This was a delicious dish, however, I think the cooking time for the chicken is too long. I followed the directions and the chicken was just a bit time I will shorten the cooking time by 3 minutes.
