Helpful hints

  • Freeze leftovers in individual portions for a quick meal later.
  • Chicken may be increased to make a higher protein dish.
  • Add 2 cups cooked broccoli or carrots in step 6 to make a one dish meal.
  • The cheese in this recipe contributes 1-1/2 tablespoons per serving and 56 mg phosphorus which is acceptable for a kidney diet. For a lower phosphorus version you can omit the cheeses.
  • Ask your dietitian to recommend the rice milk or nondairy creamer brand lowest in phosphorus and potassium.

Ranch Chicken Pasta

I halved this recipe. Used Thighs and used unsweetened Rice Milk. Cut the Sour Cream by 1/2 and added 2tsp of Mayo. Used non dairy Daiya Cheese. Omitted the dried onion and used just the onion powder. Added some home made Mrs. Dash (no sodium) It came out great.

serving size What is 1-1/2 cup is it 1 full cup and 1/2 full cup or is it 1/2 cup of pasta very confusing. Dietitian comment: It is one full cup plus 1/2 of a full cup.

Ranch Chicken Pasta

This recipe looks delicious but, I can't cook and don't have the facilities to store all of those ingredients, so do you have recipes for those of us less well attuned to creating ambitious meals such as this? I have lived on pasta for several years and know I have to change but first it seems, I have to learn to cook first, which is challenging so anything easy would be much appreciated. That said, this really is a great site and came highly recommended. Dietitian comment: You can use the recipe tags and search for Easy, Quick, and 5 or less ingredient recipes. Also in DaVita Diet Helper pre-plannned menus you will find some easy, single serving recipes.

this recipe was pretty good and easy to make, although you do have to cook the chicken seperately does have to alter the cooking time, but you can do that while cooking the noodles. The only thing that I would change would lessen the amount of sour cream. The sauce is very sour cream heavy.

I haven't tried this yet, but I was wondering if it could be used as a salad for the hot summer months.
