If you are short on time and looking for a low-FODMAP broth to use in your recipes, try FODMAPPED’s Slow Cooked Chicken Broth.  I really like the flavor of this broth, plus it comes in super handy for: making soup, using in a risotto recipe, swapping out water and using this broth instead to make brown rice, quinoa, polenta or gluten-free cous cous, stirring into mashed potatoes, adding flavor to stir dry, for steaming vegetables and finally, drinking on its own as a snack or when I am feeling a cold coming on (which seems to be often these days with a toddler).

Slow Cooker Low-FODMAP Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs
  • 1 rib celery, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 3/4 cup broccoli florets
  • 2 medium russet potatoes, peeled and chopped into cubes
  • 5 cups low-FODMAP broth, such as FODMAPPED Slow Cooked Chicken Broth
  • 1 can Full Fat Unsweetened Coconut Milk (buy online or look in the Asian foods section of your store)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper (black is fine too)
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon ground oregano
  • 1 cup frozen green beans (add 30 min prior to serving)

Instructions:

  1. Into your 6-quart slow cooker, place chicken, chopped celery, carrots, broccoli, and potatoes. Add broth and unsweetened coconut milk. Stir in salt, white pepper, dried thyme, and oregano.
  2. Turn the slow-cooker to high and allow to cook for about 4 hours, or until chicken is cooked through. Using two forks, shred chicken into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Add frozen green beans and allow to cook for 30 minutes more.
  4. Before serving, briefly whisk broth to incorporate any coconut milk that has separated. Adjust seasonings if necessary.

Notes: This recipe above serves four people and each portion of ingredients above will equal out to low-FODMAP servings.  For your reference, low-FODMAP servings for the vegetables and other items above per person are as follows: 1/4 stalk celery, 1 medium carrot, 1/2 cup broccoli, 1 medium potato, 1/2 cup canned coconut milk, 12 green beans.
