These ginger chicken rice bowls are friendly for a low FODMAP diet and are super quick and easy to make.
If you like the flavours of the chicken, you can also make it and serve it alongside chips and salad instead of rice, or in a wrap for a different type of meal.
I find the biggest challenge when following a diet such as a low FODMAP diet, is finding new meal inspiration – so I try to bring a variety of meals with my low FODMAP recipes. I do tend to err on the side of caution and don’t include ingredients which can be easily too many FODMAP’s – so if you have sauces or ingredients you know work well for you, feel free to add them into the dish to make it your own.

1. Then, begin by cutting your chicken breast into bite-sized pieces and marinating with 1/2 tsp turmeric, 1/2 tsp lime juice and 1 tbsp ginger (frozen or freshly grated)
2. Then, cook your rice as per packet instructions and chop the lettuce and red bell pepper for the salad – if using to serve, whilst the chicken marinates a little.
3. Then, heat some cooking oil in a non-stick pan and bring to a medium heat
4. Add in the chicken, cook, stirring often until it’s cooked through and browned on each side (this will depend on the size of your chicken strips, but likely take 5-7 minutes), you’ll know it’s cooked through when the meat is white throughout
5. Then serve! I serve this alongside cooked rice and a simple salad of peppers and lettuce
- 1 chicken breast
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp ginger (frozen or freshly grated)
- 1/2 tsp lime juice

To serve (Optional)

- Begin by cutting the chicken breast into bite-sized pieces and adding into a bowl with the 1/2 tsp lime juice, 1/2 tsp turmeric and 1 tsp fresh or frozen ginger - sitr and allow to marinate whilst you do step 2:
- Then, cook your rice as per packet instructions and cut your lettuce and pepper for the salad, if using to serve
- Then, heat your cooking oil in a non-stick frying pan and bring to a medium heat
- Add the chicken breast into the pan and cook for 5-7 minutes until cooked through and browned (depending on the size of your chicken pieces)
- Once the chicken is cooked, season with salt as per your taste and serve alongside the salad and rice with a squeeze of lime juice over the dish
You could also add in some soy sauce into the marinate if you'd like the dish to be more 'savoury' - look up the safe amounts of soy for FODMAP before doing so.
