Helpful hints

  • Rotini is also known as corkscrew pasta. Three ounces dry (3/4 cup) yields 1-1/2 cups cooked. This recipe calls for whole wheat but you can substitute refined rotini if desired. Potassium and phosphorus will be slightly lower.
  • You can bake boneless, skinless chicken breast or tenderloins in a 425°F oven for 18-25 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. Pound the breasts to an even thickness for more even cooking.
  • Adjust the amount of chicken for a lower or higher protein meal.

Chicken Pasta with Brussels Sprouts
MissJodi says:

I made this dish for supper this evening, and I must say it was awesome! I'm on a 1,500 mg. daily low sodium restricted diet. I am constantly searching for recipes that my husband will enjoy as well. This recipe fit the bill! I did change a couple things, but I don't think I'm endangering anyone from doing it. I added 1 Tablespoon of minced garlic to the onion/pepper mix and replaced the 1 Tablespoon butter with 1 Tablespoon Sesame oil. It really gave the dish an Asian feel!

Very good for a quick dinner. Cutting the Brussels sprouts in half helps then soak up the flavors and brown nicely in skillet. Try leftover for lunch served cold and tossed with Italian dressing.

Would it be possible to substitute Coconut Secret (name brand) Raw Coconut Aminos for the soy sauce. The bottle I have says it has 113 mg of sodium per 1 tsp. Is that a high or low sodium. I have a lot of trouble with keeping my sodium down. Dietitian comment: Unfortunately I do not have the potassium of phosphorus content for that product. If you are on a low potassium diet it may not be a good substitute.

I rely on your FOOD ANALYZER. Prod. in Groc. stores usually do not list phosphos. or potass.. Thank you for this aid. My 2nd nephrol. still hasn't mentioned diet even though she knows I am not going to do dialysis or transplant.
