Description of Fody's Creamy Salsa Low FODMAP Chicken Salad Sandwiches

We heard you! FODMAPers are always looking for low FODMAP lunch options that won’t upset their digestion. And you want something that is quick to make and protein packed. This creamy, tangy low FODMAP chicken salad sandwich checks off all the boxes - and is easy enough for non-cooks. And if you want to forgo the bread and eat it with some greens, that works, too.

We like to use poached chicken breasts because they are so juicy, but if you want to make this truly streamlined, pick up a low FODMAP rotisserie chicken and use that. Just use the same amount of cooked chicken, shredded or cubed.

Fody's Creamy Salsa Low FODMAP Chicken Salad Sandwiches Ingredients

  • 12 cups (2.8 L) water
  • 2 tablespoons Low FODMAP Chicken Soup Base
  • 20-ounces (570 g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, separated into individual lobes
  • 1 cup (240 g) Fody Salsa, Mild or Medium
  • 2/3 cup (160 g) lactose-free sour cream
  • ¼ cup (16 g) chopped scallions, green parts only
  • 1 medium stalk celery, diced
  • ½ red bell pepper, cored and diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions for Fody's Creamy Salsa Low FODMAP Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Place water and Low FODMAP Chicken Soup Base in a pot and whisk together. Cut the individual chicken breasts in half crosswise and add to the pot. Cover and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Allow to simmer for about 5 minutes, then turn off heat and allow the chicken to sit in the hot water, cover on, for 10 minutes. Check the breasts; they should be cooked through. Drain and cool; set aside.

In a mixing bowl, stir together the Fody Low FODMAP salsa, sour cream, scallions, chopped celery, red bell pepper, cilantro and lime juice until blended, then stir in the chicken until everything is evenly mixed. Taste and adjust seasoning. Low FODMAP chicken salad is ready to serve as a sandwich filling or as a salad with greens. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
