Description of Fody's Low FODMAP Chicken Cobb Salad with BBQ Sauce

Missing barbecue while following the low FODMAP diet? Missing EASY barbecue recipes? This Fody BBQ Low FODMAP Chicken Cobb Salad recipe will satisfy on all counts. Fody Low FODMAP BBQ Sauce is sweet and tangy, and so easy to use straight out of the bottle. For this low FODMAP salad, we have used it to flavorful effect with chicken breasts and then assembled all the classic ingredients to go alongside: bacon, hard-boiled egg, juicy tomatoes, crisp lettuce, avocado and blue cheese. The chicken can be added to the salad warm, or have everything at room temperature.

Fody Low FODMAP BBQ Chicken Cobb Salad

  • 2 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts (approx. 1 ½ to 1 3/4 pounds/680 g to 800 g) cut into separate lobes, pounded to an even thickness
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) Fody Low FODMAP BBQ Sauce
  • 2 medium heads of Romaine lettuce, washed and dried, cored and chopped
  • ½ dry pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 8 slices crisp cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 4 hardboiled eggs, peeled and sliced crosswise into rounds
  • Ripe avocado, diced to yield about 180 g/6.25 ounces of avocado (plan on 30 g per serving)
  • 4 ounces (115 g) crumbed blue cheese
  • Fody Garden & Herb Low FODMAP Salad Dressing

Cooking Directions for Fody's BBQ Chicken Cobb Salad

Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Coat the inside of a small roasting pan with nonstick spray. Arrange chicken breasts in pan, spaced evenly apart, and brush with the Fody BBQ Sauce on all sides. Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Roast for 20 minutes, then remove foil and continue to cook for approximately 15 more minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Allow to rest for a few minutes while you arrange salad.

Meanwhile, arrange chopped lettuce on a serving platter and arrange tomatoes, bacon, hard-boiled eggs, avocado and blue cheese in separate areas. Slice chicken breasts crosswise and arrange on platter. Serve with Fody Garden & Herb Salad Dressing, suggesting about 2 tablespoons per servings for the FODMAPers.
