Low FODMAP notes
In this section, I share information for certain ingredients that are either frequently asked about or that have suggested serving sizes to remain low FODMAP. We each have unique tolerance levels and nutritional needs. Please listen to your body (and if possible, work with a FODMAP-trained dietitian) to determine what is best for you. For more low FODMAP serving size info, please refer to the Monash FODMAP app and FODMAP Friendly website or app.
Broccoli can be low FODMAP, depending on the part and serving size. Florets (or the darker green heads) are lower in FODMAPs than the stalks (the lighter green part). Broccoli florets are low FODMAP in servings of ¾ cup or 75 grams. Broccoli stalks have a smaller low FODMAP serving of ⅓ cup or 45 grams.
Chives are a FODMAP-free ingredient. They are usually used as a garnish and can add a subtle FODMAP-friendly garlic flavor to dishes.
Mayonnaise is low FODMAP in servings of 2 tablespoons or 40 grams. Double-check ingredients and choose products without high FODMAP ingredients like onion or garlic.
Plain chicken is a low FODMAP food. Pre-seasoned or marinated chicken often contain high FODMAP ingredients like onion or garlic. Double-check ingredients before purchasing.
Some grocery stores sell rotisserie chickens that use only low FODMAP ingredients. Just BARE Chicken is one that I have found in my area.
Potatoes are a FODMAP-free food with or without the skin. Keeping the skin adds a little extra low FODMAP fiber.

These Low FODMAP Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Potatoes are perfect for a simple, family-friendly weeknight meal.
- 4 medium russet potatoes, washed well
- 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
- Sea salt or kosher salt
- 2 cups diced or shredded cooked chicken breast (or rotisserie chicken made with low FODMAP ingredients)
- ½ cup Low FODMAP Buffalo Sauce
- 1 bag (about 2 cups) steamable frozen broccoli (I use Birdseye Steamfresh)
Creamy Herb Sauce
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon white vinegar
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill
- 1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives
- Using a fork, pierce each potato several times on all sides. Rub each potato with ½ teaspoon olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave for 4 minutes. Flip the potatoes and microwave for another 3 minutes or until fork-tender. Cooking time will vary depending on microwave power and the size of the potatoes. If your potatoes aren’t cooked after 7 minutes, continue microwaving in 1-minute increments until fork tender. Allow the potatoes to cool for 3-4 minutes.
- In a medium bowl, toss the cooked chicken with the buffalo sauce. Warm, if needed, either on the stove or in the microwave.
- Once potatoes are done, microwave broccoli according to package instructions.
- While broccoli is cooking, whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar, dill, and chives in a small bowl.
- After the potatoes have cooled slightly, Carefully slice each potato in half lengthwise, stopping about a ¼-inch from the bottom to keep the two sides intact. Using a fork, fluff the insides.
- Assemble by topping each potato with ½ cup chicken, ½ cup broccoli, and about 1 tablespoon of the herb mayonnaise sauce.
- Serve warm.
