There are lots of FODMAP friendly ways to flavour food without using garlic,onion or other ingredients that are not part of the FODMAP plan. Herbs and spices can perk up almost any dish and many are traditionally believed to help IBS and digestion (although the science is sometimes more sketchy). This simple chicken dish looks impressive and uses basil tucked under the parma ham for great flavour.
4 skinless chicken breasts
4 slices parma ham
8 large basil leaves (or sage)
1 tablespoon olive oil
Heat the over to 180C.
Take each chicken breast and place two basil leaves on it. Then wrap the parma ham around the chicken breast, covering the basil and tuck the ends underneath. Repeat with the other three chicken breasts.
Place them all on a non-stick baking tray, brush lightly with olive oil and season with black pepper.
Bake for 25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Serve with baked potatoes and green beans for a FODMAP-friendly dinner.
