I consider chicken broth a cooking staple. It’s an easy way to add flavor and depth to many dishes. However, it’s near impossible to find a ready-to-use Low FODMAP Chicken Broth in the stores. So, I love to make my own!

Sometimes, I will have multiple slow cookers with Low FODMAP Chicken Broth going at the same time. When it’s ready, I’ll store some in mason jars in my fridge for more immediate use and then divide the rest into ice cube trays to freeze for easy flavor in the future. This also works great for my Low FODMAP Slow Cooker Beef Broth.

Easily add flavor to soups, pasta dishes and more with this Low FODMAP Chicken Broth recipe. And, it’s made in a slow cooker for extra ease!


  • Bones of 1 (2 lb.) rotisserie chicken
  • 2 carrots, washed and chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, washed and chopped
  • 5 sprigs thyme
  • 3 sprigs rosemary
  • 5 sprigs parsley
  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger, sliced into coins
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 8 peppercorns
  • 2 quarts water


  1. Place all ingredients into a 2-quart slow cooker.
  2. Cook on low for 8-12+ hours. Turn off heat and let cool slightly.
  3. Remove large chicken bones and vegetable pieces using tongs. Place a strainer over a large bowl. Pour remaining broth through a strainer. For a clearer broth, strain a second time using cheesecloth or coffee filters to line your strainer.
  4. Place broth in containers to cool completely. Cover and refrigerate for up to a week. Or, freeze for longer use.


Yield will vary based on cooking time. Water may be added throughout cooking to increase yield, however, this may result in a more diluted flavor.

I'm a foodie and dietitian living with IBS who loves creating easy and delicious low FODMAP recipes for you (and me)! I've been trained on the use of the low FODMAP diet for IBS by Monash University and create my recipes based on their (green) low FODMAP serving sizes.


  1. Question…am I using just the bones of the chicken? Also assume I’ll use a “naked” bird to avoid onion and garlic which may be added to an herbed chicken…
    My lovely DIL sufferes with severe IBS and I’m looking for dishes the entire family can enjoy since being singled out with a special meal makes her uncomfortable.
    I’ll be making this dish for our tree trimming evening this weekend- thanks so very much!

    1. Great question! Yes, you’re just using the bones. 🙂 Some grocery stores will make rotisserie chickens that are just seasoned with salt, but most are seasoned and do contain onion and/or garlic powder. Depending on a person’s tolerance, I usually recommend several options. 1) Make your own roasted chicken (I have a recipe for my go-to Lemon Roasted Chicken) or 2) remove and discard the skin of a store-bought seasoned rotisserie chicken. If someone is very sensitive, they may not want to eat the store-bought seasoned rotisserie chicken even if the skin is removed, however, the bones should be fine to use due to their distance from the seasoning.

      I hope you and your family have a wonderful time trimming the tree!
