Don't eat this too often Too much Sodium & Potasium You will die from a heart attack first. I love Sweat & Sour Chicken but I didn't know it had that much in it Once every 6 months. Dietitian comment: Fortunately this kidney-friendly version is much lower in sodium and potassium compared to the Chinese restaurant or takeout version.

We don't like onions so I added mushrooms. Very good. Husband doesn't care much for rice but loved the sauce. Could we add water chestnuts for some crunch? or how about some chinese vegetables. We will make this one again. Thanks.

I made this for my family and we all really enjoyed it. I didn't have green peppers but I think I will add those and red pepper and pineapple next time I make this. I will make this again.
