Helpful hints

  • Choose the canned chicken lowest in sodium.Melanie uses Keystone Chicken (available at Walmart).
  • Chicken Patties are very similar to salmon or tuna patties, but might be better liked by someone who doesn't care for fish. 
  • Look for Kikkoman brand panko bread crumbs-- the sodium content is lower compared to commercial and generic unseasoned bread crumbs. Unsalted or low-sodium crushed saltines are an acceptable alternative to the bread crumbs.
  •  Variations: instead of patties, form into 24 chicken meatballs. Meatballs could be eaten as a high-protein snack or used with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce recipe over pasta.

I look for Dynasty brand panko it states it does have any soduim in mgs but it does list 4 % in the daily values. Everytime I make this recipe I have to aIdd additional panko in it.

This is really good. I make it with toffuti cream cheese and leave out the egg, because are can not have eggs. They are moist and stay together really well for cooking.

My DR is more concerned with my potassium and protein, and has not mention phosphorus as a concern. My concern with this recipe is that the protein seems to be very high. 17grams? Im in stage 3 (ICD-585.3 ) Renal Disease. Dietitian comment: You can make smaller patties for a lower protein diet. If you make 8 instead of 6 patties protein is 13 grams each. If you make 10 patties protein is 10 grams each.

I am thinking, would this work also with just plain chicken, baked. Would I need to add some type of liquid with it? Dietitian reply: No I think the cream cheese will keep it moist.
