Although this recipe has not been lab tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients (using available FODMAP data at time of posting)

Serves: 4 or more

Prep time: 5 min

Cook time: 15 minutes

Total time: 20 min


  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) balsamic vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon is 1 low-FODMAP serving
  • 2 tablespoons garlic-infused oil
    • Infused oils are safe to eat, since garlic and onion FODMAPs are not soluble in fats, great way to add flavor!  See my low-FODMAP Happy Gut Guide for more details
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • A pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil or your other preferred oil for cooking
  • 2 lbs (32 ounces) uncooked boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into strips
    • Ensure you do not purchase frozen varieties that are seasoned with broth as these often contain added onion and garlic
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 12 ounces (340 g) green beans, trimmed and cut  (fresh or fresh frozen and defrosted)
    • 75g is listed as  one low-FODMAP serving, but you can consume up to 125g without over consuming sorbitol
  • 3 tablespoons (25 g) toasted almond slivers or slices


  • In a small bowl whisk balsamic vinegar, garlic infused oil, maple syrup, mustard, and red pepper flakes until combined
  • Set aside for later
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, heat avocado oil
  • Add chicken tenders and season with salt and pepper well
  • Sear until golden, about 3 minutes per side
    • You don’t need to fully cook it, since it will return to the pan later
  • Remove chicken strips from pan and set aside on a covered plate to keep warm
  • To pan, add green beans, season liberally with more salt and pepper
  • Cook about 5 minutes stirring occasionally (you can cover the skillet to speed the cooking)
  • Move beans to one side of the pan and place the chicken on the other side, turn heat to medium or medium-low per your stovetop
  • Add the balsamic mixture
  • Toss green beans and chicken to coat with sauce, then stir occasionally until the chicken is cooked through and sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes more
  • Sprinkle with almond slivers and toss again
  • Serve with your preferred low-FODMAP side dishes (I used quinoa)!
