Low-FODMAP Chicken Noodle Soup; Gluten-free, Dairy-free

Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients

Serves 6

Cook time: 20 min

(If chicken is not baked, add additional 20 min for this step)

Bake 400 F


  • 3 cooked and cubed boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 12 ounces total)
    • if cooked already, skip steps 1-3
  • 2 tablespoons onion or garlic infused oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1-2 teaspoons each of: salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 cups low-FODMAP chicken broth (see recipe)
  • 2 cups raw low-FODMAP noodles: try Asian rice vermicelli noodles or gluten-free, low-FODMAP thin spaghetti pasta
    • I used Ronzoni brand thin spaghetti noodles
  • Minced fresh parsley and/or dill, for garnish
  • Serve with gluten-free crackers (I like Glutino brand), or if you can tolerate gluten then regular saltine crackers have tested to be low-FODMAP in recent US based research


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F
  • Drizzle the chicken breasts or thighs with olive oil and sprinkle with the ground thyme and some salt and pepper
  • Put the chicken in a roasting pan lined with foil and roast until cooked through, about 20 minutes
  • Let cool slightly and chop into cubes
  • In a pot over medium heat, pour in the chicken broth
  • Cover and bring to a simmer, stir in the 2 tablespoons of oil
  • Add the noodles and cook in the broth until al-dente
  • Add chopped chicken to the pot
  • Add salt and pepper to taste
  • Serve garnished with fresh dill and parsley, if desired

  1. Great soup

    I used the remainder from the low fodmap roast chicken recipe for the chicken in this soup. Most compliments I have ever received on a pot of soup.

  2. I want to make this soup but my stomach does not tolerate oil what so ever. What would be another way of cook the chicken that you would suggest instead of baking it?

    1. Hi there Amelia,
      Thank you for the question!
      You could certainly eliminate the olive oil and still bake the chicken. It may be a little more dry, but it should still turn out nicely. If you prefer to utilize pre-cooked chicken pieces that have no added oil, that would also turn out just fine. Just make sure that any pre-bought and cooked chicken does not contain onion or garlic. Best of luck!

    1. Keira- Thanks for sharing this helpful tip! We wish we had an Instant Pot too. Maybe next birthday 🙂

  3. Rachel, made this for a friend and here’s her review: “That chicken noodle soup transported me to my moms Passover dinner, especially with the fresh parsley on top. Every bite was such an interesting food memory”. You induced time travel! I was the taste tester – took willpower to just have a taste (or 2 or 3). The garlic oil is delicious!

    1. This is the most touching and wonderful praise we could ever imagine. Thank you so much for sharing. It truly makes our day 🙂
