This delicious low FODMAP sticky Chinese chicken chicken bake is sure to be a hit with the whole family! Just a quick note that we updated this recipe on 21 December 2017 to make the chicken even more delicious.
How to replace low FODMAP pumpkin: If you can’t find low FODMAP squash/pumpkin then use parsnip or sweet potato instead. Just make sure you keep to the low FODMAP serve for sweet potato which is 70g (1/2 cup) per person, otherwise it can become high FODMAP.
Garlic infused oil is found in the oil section of your local supermarket. 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 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.
Check the crushed ginger does not contain garlic. Crushed ginger is grated ginger that has been preserved in a jar. You can swap it for fresh ginger if you prefer.
Make sure you buy a leek that has long green tips (this is the low FODMAP part), as you can’t use the white/light green leek bulb (this part is high FODMAP).
Make sure you use pure maple syrup (low FODMAP) not maple flavoured syrup (potentially high FODMAP).
Make your lemon juice and lemon zest from fresh lemon.
The amount of wheat in regular soy sauce is low FODMAP, however if you are feeling concerned you can buy gluten free soy sauce (Tamari).
Choose a stock that does not include onion or garlic. We prefer to use Massel Chicken Stock Cube 7's (in the yellow & blue packet). This product is low FODMAP, gluten free and vegan (despite it's name) and each packet makes 7 cups of stock. This product can be brought online around the world and is available from some supermarkets.
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.
