Would really like to try this, but sodium levels are a bit much. Any suggestions as to how to cut down on sodium intake for this recipe? Thx

Hi there, I can think of two ways to reduce the sodium in this recipe. The first is to cook your beans from scratch without salt. (Canned beans are usually fairly high in sodium.) The other is to use chicken that you cook at home, without salt, rather than rotisserie chicken.
