Keep it Friendly
This low FODMAP salsa chicken fresca is the dinner idea you've been waiting for! Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FOMDAP friendly.
First up, chicken! Since chicken is a protein, it doesn't have any FODMAPs. That means you can eat as much as you'd like without adding to your FODMAP load.
We'll also be using low FODMAP salsa. Finding a low FODMAP salsa can be tricky, so I usually like to make my own. If you want a FODMAP-friendly recipe, you can grab mine here.
Last but not least, mozzarella. According to Monash University, mozzarella cheese is low FODMAP in servings of 1/4 cups per sitting. Servings of 4 cups or more are high in the FODMAP lactose. Our recipe uses 1/2 a cup total, which works out to 2 tbsp per serving. This is well within Monash's recommended range.
Whose Side Are You On?
This low FODMAP salsa chicken fresca is packed with fresh flavours, so I like to pair it with steamed broccoli or green beans, or grilled veggies like bell peppers, bok choy, or zucchini. You can also sneak in starches like brown rice, quinoa, or some roasted potatoes.
