3 Ways to Make Chicken

Updated: Feb 26

Chicken is a great protein option for people with kidney disease.  A 3-ounce serving, which is about the size of a deck of cards or the palm of your hand, has about 26 grams of protein.  To complete a meal, add a side of vegetables and a starchy vegetable or grain with cooked chicken.  Enjoy these and other chicken recipes in your kidney meal plan.
