  5. Thanks for the nice recipe, it looks good and appetizing. I like the fact that it has low calories, fat and cholesterol. This is a good recipe for those who want to lose weight.
    The sodium content is a bit high, I’m sure it’s coming from the chicken broth. Looking for a low sodium broth would be the option.
