    I'm not the author, but if you look at the nutritional breakdown it says they are using a 1/2 tsp of salt PER SERVING. According the AHA, there are 2300 mg of sodium in ONE tsp of salt. Hopefully, it's an entry error. I'm going to try this recipe, but there's no way I'm using a whole tsp of salt. - 9/1/10

  • Fatsecret says there are 223 mg of sodium in a small chicken thigh. I won't use any in the marinade but will add it if it is needed when we eat it. The crackers with the unsalted tops have more sodium than an ounce of salted peanuts, but you can't taste it in the crackers. Having it tomorrow - 6/27/15
