Helpful hints

  • Serve with white rice and green beans for a complete kidney friendly meal.
  • Use Splenda® Brown Sugar Blend to reduce carbohydrate content if you have diabetes.
  • Another way to reduce carbohydrate is to substitute 1-1/2 cups of frozen cranberries in place of whole-berry cranberry sauce and add low calorie sweetener to desired sweetness.
  • For a lower sodium dish use no added salt ketchup without potassium chloride.
  • Cut large chicken breast-halves in half for 6 pieces.
  • Use chicken thighs or legs if you like dark-meat chicken. 
  • Adjust the chicken portion to match your meal plan if you are on a lower protein diet.

I made this using skin free thighs vs. breasts. I also used salt free catsup. It was wonderful. I originally thought the canned whole-berry cranberry sauce was going to be too sweet but it wasn't. I am looking forward, though, to trying it with frozen cranberries and adding my own sweetener just for fun. Thanks, DaVita, for a splendid recipe.

Made this last night. Really liked it. Will reduce sugar by a tablespoon and increase vinegar next time. Used skinless thighs, and salt free catsup.

Unbelievably good! It took only a few minutes to put the sauce together, while the chicken was browning. By the time I had the salad and veg. ready so was the chicken. I used thighs(two)so used a thermometer because of the thickness. Dinner was ready in 30-40 minutes. I made the whole sauce recipe but only used enough to cover the thighs so I have enough left over to have again tonight with breasts. Hubby loved it and wants more!

When I made this recipe I didn't have any chicken breasts so I used tenderloins. No matter whether breasts or tenderloins, 3-4 minutes cooking per side wasn't long enough to brown the chicken . As a result not only myself but my daughter and my husband (he wouldn't even try it) found this a little off-putting. But I must say, the taste was very good. So next time, I will brown the chicken. I also used homemade whole cranberry sauce which was very flavorful.

This is absolutely delicious! I used unsalted ketchup for lower sodium and it was still very tasty. Even my future daughter-in-law, who dislikes cranberries, loved this chicken recipe. The chicken was very tender and moist.

This was an amazing recipe, my husband's not big on the chicken recipes I make, but he liked this, the sweetness from the cranberries made it more of a comfort food and made it seem like it was a little less like the healthy food that it is!

This is one of the most deliciaous recipes we have tried. My husband prefers pork to chicken but thought this recipe was excellent. I love trying your recipes for the crockpot and for the variety you provide on a fairly dull renal diet.

This sauce is very tasty, but I agree with another review that there seems to be too much potassium, phosphorus and sodium.. ummmmm...is good though!

This sounds delicious, but is it really kidney friendly? I worry about the amount of protein, sodium, potassium and phosphorus. Moderator comment: The portion could be adjusted to for a lower protein diet, and you could use a no salt ketchup like Hunt's to reduce the sodium (avoid the brands with potassium chloride). On average, an ounce of meat or poultry provides 100 mg potassium and 65 mg phosphorus. This recipe is in range with 4 ounces of chicken.
