People with liver disease can encounter problems with protein not being properly processed. Waste products can build up from this process and affect the brain. In order to keep this in check, cutting down protein and increasing the amount of carbohydrate in your diet can be a good plan of attack. This buffalo chicken recipe is a great example of that dietary alteration. Instead of sitting down to a dinner of chicken wings which is straight protein, this decreases the protein consumed by adding sweet potato as the carbohydrate. The flavor profiles make you feel like you are getting the real deal and not missing out on your favorite buffalo wing experience.
The other concern with liver disease can be consuming too much salt and causing swelling. Two things I did to lower sodium in this dish
-only season chicken with pepper
-using yogurt based blue cheese dressing
