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
- 4 Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs

- 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
