Low FODMAP Moroccan Chicken

  • Author: Em Schwartz, MS, RDN
  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x
  • Diet: Low Lactose


Spiced without being overly spicy, this Low FODMAP Moroccan Chicken is a delicious alternative to plain, grilled chicken!


  • ¼ cup garlic-infused olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons ground paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional
  • 1 (20-ounce) package boneless, skinless chicken thighs (or breasts)


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients except chicken. Transfer mixture to a gallon ziptop bag or glass container with a lid. Add chicken and mix to coat. Seal and marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for at least an hour but ideally 8 hours.
  2. When ready to eat, preheat grill (or broiler) on high. Remove chicken from marinade, discarding any leftover marinade. Grill chicken thighs for 6-8 minutes per side or until cooked. I recommend using a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part to double-check that it is done. Chicken is cooked when the internal temperature reaches 165°F. 
  3. Serve warm with your favorite low FODMAP sides.

Storage: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to three days. 


Low FODMAP serving: One serving uses low FODMAP amounts of ingredients.
