    This could be lower in sodium by using either or a combination of Herb Ox SODIUM FREE broth boullions or 50% LESS lower sodium broth, also use the LOWER sodium 98% Fat Free condensed Cream of Chicken soup. It does look really good, will try. - 4/1/09

    I'm glad yu liked it. I had not thought of rostiserie chicken. Many times I will cook the chicken breast the night before, then throw it together on the night I want it. In fact, guess what I'm planning on tonight?
