Fody's Cheesy Low FODMAP Chicken and Rice Skillet Ingredients
- 2 cups cooked brown rice
- 1-2 tablespoons Fody's Low FODMAP Garlic-Infused Olive Oil
- 1 pound lean ground chicken
- 1 medium red bell pepper, stem and seeds removed, diced
- ½ cup Fody Salsa Verde
- 1 teaspoon Fody’s Taco Seasoning
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- Optional toppings: sliced green onion tops (green parts only) and chopped fresh cilantro
Fody's Cheesy Low FODMAP Chicken and Rice Skillet Directions
If not already cooked, prepare brown rice according to package instructions.
Heat 1 tablespoon garlic-infused Low FODMAP olive oil in a skillet (with a lid) over medium-high heat. Once hot, brown ground chicken, breaking into crumbles, until almost cooked, about 4-6 minutes. Add diced red bell pepper (and an additional 1 tablespoon garlic-infused olive oil, if needed). Continue cooking until peppers are fork-tender, about 5-7 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium. Stir in cooked brown rice, Fody Salsa Verde, and Low FODMAP taco seasoning.
Sprinkle cheese evenly over the top of the chicken and brown rice mixture. We used cheddar, but if you're not a fan, feel free to sub out for another Low FODMAP cheese. Cover and continue to cook until everything is hot and the cheese is melted.
Serve chicken and rice skillet warm, topped with sliced green onion tops (remember, only the green parts are Low FODMAP) and chopped fresh cilantro.
