I have made this without mushrooms because husband does not like them, and it still a great meal. I also do not brown chicken,we thighs instead of the breasts. Sometimes I add wine sometimes I do not. It still easy and good

Is the sodium (1944) correct? How can I reduce the sodium?

Hello, Food Editor Hannah here! Yes, the sodium count is correct on this recipe. Since the sodium largely comes from all the convenience products, I'd look at each one and see if I can make changes. For example, Campbell's offers a Healthy Choice version of its Condensed Golden Mushroom Soup which is slightly lower in sodium (and also cholesterol and fat). I expect that would work fine here. For the Italian Dressing Mix, I would just substitute a half-teaspoon or so each of oregano, basil, black pepper, paprika, onion powder and garlic powder, and perhaps a spoonful of sugar as well, since those packaged dressing mixes also have sugar in them. The other culprit is probably that flavored cream cheese. You could purchase regular or low-fat cream cheese (I wouldn't use nonfat in this recipe), and then add your own dried chives and garlic powder or crushed garlic to replace the flavor lost. The final recipe won't taste exactly the same, but even if you only do one of these substitutions, you'll shave some sodium off the nutrition counts. Good luck!
