That's about a full day's worth of sodium in 1 meal fyi.

recommended sodium necessary is about 500mg, but the average person eats 2000-7000mg a day. the body can get rid of excess sodium, but too much will strain your kidneys, and it also helps retain weight (not the good kind).

The marinade and seasonings are what kill the health benefits. I'm not saying not to eat it, it's fine as long as you eat better other times, just that it isn't as healthy as it could be.

It's a half-chicken so I assume it has dark meat in it, and that paired with the skin would make it a more fatty meal.

Anyway, Boston Market FTW! They have great meatloaf and their creamed spinach is awesome.

No the recommended is closer to 2000.

No the recommended is closer to 2000.

The below is the minimum, yet not exactly proven, U.S. Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) and please pay attention that the word minimum is used here:
• Adults 500 mg
• Children 400 mg
• Infants 120‐200 mg

The U.S. Government has replaced RDA with DRV and established a recommend DRV for potassium (3500mg/day) and sodium (2400mg/day), based on a diet of 2000 calories/day.
