Say hello to our low FODMAP cozy chicken casserole. This heart-warming dish is perfect for nights when you’re craving a comforting, home-cooked meal.
It combines tender chicken thighs with sweet roast veggies in a yummy mustard maple sauce.
Easy swaps: You can swap the sweet potato for Japanese/Kabocha pumpkin (also called buttercup or Kent squash). If you don’t like parsnip, then you can switch in potato.
Garlic infused oil is normally found in the oil section of your local supermarket or you can buy it online. It should be clear with no floating bits of garlic.
You can also make garlic infused oil at home by frying garlic cloves in cooking oil until they are golden and fragrant, then remove and discard the garlic before you continue cooking your meal. This is a low FODMAP way to capture the garlic flavour as the fructans can't leach into the oil.
Make sure you buy a leek that has long green leaves (this is the low FODMAP part), as you can’t use the white/light green leek bulb (this part is high FODMAP). Once you've finished harvesting the leaves place the leek in a glass of water on a window sill and the leaves will reshoot so you can harvest them again.
Make sure you use pure maple syrup (low FODMAP) not maple flavoured syrup (potentially high FODMAP).
Buy a gluten free plain flour or gluten free all purpose flour. The one we used contains these ingredients: maize starch, rice flour, tapioca starch, rice bran, & guar gum. Avoid flour blends that contain soy flour, chickpea/besan/gram/garbanzo bean flour, lentil flour, coconut flour, amaranth flour, or lupin flour.
Check your mustard does not contain onion or garlic powder.
Sweet potato is low FODMAP in 75g/2.65oz serves and becomes high FODMAP in larger serves. Our recipes only use a low FODMAP portion of sweet potato. However if you are concerned you can normally swap the sweet potato for regular potato, carrot or parsnip.
Choose a stock that does not include onion or garlic. Massel have a range of low FODMAP, gluten free and vegan stock powders that are certified as low FODMAP. This product can be brought online around the world and is available from some supermarkets. Also check your Monash University FODMAP Diet App or FODMAP Friendly App for additional options. Or use our homemade chicken stock or vegetable stock.
Herbs and spices are naturally gluten free, however they can become contaminated during manufacturing processes. If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check the dried herbs and spices do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
