This looks good. Why, though, do they feel it necessary to add salt to a recipe that already has soy sauce? Even lower-sodium soy sauce is laden with massive amounts of sodium. I only mention this because this is supposed to be a site with “healthful” recipes, and no one needs tons of sodium in their diet. Of course one can omit the extra sodium.

here are culinary reasons to salt chicken. It’s mostly to keep the chicken from drying out over time. Personally, I don’t eat a lot of salt, so I would omit it wherever possible. Sodium doesn’t necessarily mean it tastes salty though. Coke has a shit ton of sodium, and it doesn’t taste salty at all, for example. Winner winner chicken dinner. You could always salt the chicken and let it sit in the fridge for a while, then rinse and pat dry right before you start cooking. It’ll keep the meat moist without having the extra salt. As a chef (with a background in nutrition), I can tell you salt is an integral part of food and cooking. It’s also not unhealthy. If your doctor says to avoid excess salt, then by all means, but in general, it’s not a bad thing.

It helps maintain electrolyte balance. If you’re one of those people that drink lots of water (as many people over-hydrate), you need to replace your salt stores. I am someone with hypertension (high blood pressure is the same thing FYI) and it’s actually true that one meal won’t kill you. Also, that recipe is for 4-8 servings. A small sprinkle of salt to keep your chicken moist and a quarter cup of soy sauce spread across 4-8 meals is fine. Eat a half serving with plain rice and use low sodium soy sauce if you’re concerned. But make sure you get plenty of veggies and water and don’t eat too many prepackaged foods is a bigger concern than an occasional meal with soy sauce.
