Looking for a fancy pants dinner you can make on the fly? This simple low FODMAP mushroom stuffed chicken is deceptively easy to make!
My husband and I are die-hard foodies! But with both of us launching new businesses this summer, our dinners have been a little lacklustre…
So I decided to take a cruise through our recipe binder (yes, that's a thing), and I re-discovered this mushroom stuffed chicken.
This recipe was one of our pre-FODMAP favourites and, honestly, I had forgotten all about it (see, that's why you need a recipe binder). But now that I've jarred my taste bud's memory, you can bet it's going to have a place of honour on our fall menu!
I love this recipe because it has a simple list of ingredients and it's super easy to put together, so it's a no-brainer for weeknights. Plus, with it's a rich, savoury flavour, it really does leave you feeling a little fancy!
Keep it FODMAP friendly
Unleash your inner foodie with this deceptively easy low FODMAP mushroom stuffed chicken. Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly!
First up, chicken. Since chicken is a protein, it doesn't have any FODMAPs (unless you add them). So this won't add anything to your FODMAP load.
Next up, oyster mushrooms. According to Monash University, oyster mushrooms are low FODMAP in servings of 1 cup (75 g) per sitting. Servings of 2.2 lbs or more are high in the poyols sorbitol and mannitol.
We'll be using 1 cup of oyster mushrooms total, which is unlikely to add anything to your FODMAP load.
We'll also be using leeks. According to Monash, the green part of a leek is low FODMAP in servings of 2/3 of a cup (54 g) per sitting. Servings of 1 cup (75 g) or more are high in the polyol mannitol.
Our recipe calls for 1/4 cup of leeks, total. This works out to 5 g of leeks per serving, which is well within Monash's recommended range and unlikely to contribute anything notable to your FODMAP load.
Last but not least, balsamic vinegar. According to the Monash app, balsamic vinegar is low FODMAP in servings of 1 tbsp (21 g) per sitting. Servings of 2 tbsp (42 g) or more are high in the FODMAP fructose.
We'll be using 2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar, which works out to 5.5 g per serving. This is well within Monash's recommended range.

- Once the mushrooms are cool enough to handle, spread the mixture onto the flattened chicken breasts. Starting with one edge, roll the chicken breasts up and fix them in place with a toothpick.
