Description

Missing Tex-Mex flavor on the low FODMAP diet for IBS? Try these easy low FODMAP chicken fajita bowls! This sheet pan meal recipe uses just nine ingredients and can be ready in only 30 minutes.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 teaspoons low FODMAP taco seasoning (or make your own)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons garlic-infused olive oil
  • 1.5 medium green bell peppers, seeds removed and sliced // about 1.5 cups or 225 grams of sliced green bell pepper
  • ½ medium red bell pepper, seeds removed and sliced // about ½ cup or 75 grams of sliced red bell pepper
  • 1 to 1.25 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, thinly sliced across the grain
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice

Optional Garnishes: 2 tablespoons sliced green onion tops (green parts only), 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves, lime wedges


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a large sheet pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together taco seasoning, lime juice, and garlic-infused oil. Add bell pepper slices and chicken pieces. Toss until the chicken and peppers are well-coated and the seasoning is evenly distributed.
  3. Spread the chicken and veggie mixture onto the prepared sheet pan, arranging in a single even layer.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes. Stir the chicken and pepper slices. Then, bake for an additional 7-8 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked and the veggies are fork-tender.
  5. Serve warm over cooked brown rice. Garnish with optional green onion tops (green parts only), cilantro, and lime wedges.

Storage: Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Freezing is not recommended.

Notes

Low FODMAP Serving: One serving of this recipe contains low FODMAP amounts of ingredients. Please refer to the Monash University FODMAP app for more information on specific serving sizes.

Brown Rice: To save time, try instant brown rice (like Minute) or frozen steamable rice (like Birdseye Steamfresh). Add extra flavor by cooking instant brown rice in low FODMAP broth instead of water, or by adding lime juice and cilantro to cooked brown rice. 

2022 Updates / Old Recipe: This recipe was updated to reflect current low FODMAP serving sizes after Monash University retested certain foods. If you enjoyed and tolerated the old recipe, it used 2 tablespoons low FODMAP taco seasoning, 1.5 medium red bell peppers, and ½ medium green bell peppers. The other ingredients remained the same.
