Garlic Chicken with Balsamic Vinegar

This sounds delicious but can you please explain to me why this recipe would not be CKD non-dialysis friendly? I am new to this style of cooking and am trying to understand what makes a recipe ok and what does not. Is there too much protein or is it the quantity of potassium from the mushrooms? Thanks for teaching a retired teacher! Dietitian comment: YOu are correct Judy, it's because of the high protein content. Otherwise the recipe is fine for a CKD non-dialysis diet if you decrease the portion to 2 ounces or the amount suggested in your meal plan. I will adjust the diet types to reflect this.

This is a wonderful recipe and is very similar to a "non-renal" version I make at home. I did not have a problem with the chicken being tough or the garlic flavor not being present like described by another user. I suspect something went awry during the cooking process. I have found that a longer simmering time over low heat results in tender chicken breasts. I would recommend using white balsamic vinegar for a milder taste and no discoloration. Loved this and recommend it to my dialysis patients who need more flavorful protein sources.

Being a "foodie", this recipe was fantastic! I made it for a family member at a dinner party I was having (who is on a renal diet). Everyone wanted to eat his dinner - and copied the recipe! My husband and friends were sopping up the juices from the pan! The chicken was tender the ratio of garlic to balsamic was perfect. I served it with wild rice and grilled asparagus.

I do wonder if there was possibly an issue with my chicken or my balsamic vinegar but the chicken was very tough and all you could taste was the balsamic vinegar. The next day I could still smell the garlic on my hands but I never could taste it in the dish. I doubt I'll try this one again.
