Helpful hints

  • For convenience, you can use a package of prepared dumpling noodles like Mary B’s® brand, which can be found in the frozen food section of your grocery store.
  • If you are on a protein-modified diet, select a smaller 2.5-pound chicken to reduce protein to 21 grams per serving. 
  • Substitute 3 turkey legs, skinned, boned and chopped for chicken.

how much protein are you allowed per day? Dietitian: Protein allowance is individualized for each person based on if you are on dialysis (higher protein) or chronic kidney disease without dialysis (lower protein). Consult your doctor or dietitian for a recommendation.
