This easy low FODMAP spiced lemon chicken has a light, lemony flavor with hints of turmeric, cumin, and smoked paprika. Serve this simple main with your favorite low FODMAP veggie and whole-grain sides.


  • 3 tablespoons garlic-infused olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 to 1.25 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (or breasts)

Optional garnish: Chopped fresh cilantro or parsley


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, paprika, salt, cumin, and turmeric.
  2. Add chicken and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.
  3. Preheat grill (or broiler) on high. Toss the chicken once more and then transfer the chicken from the marinade to the grill or a greased broiler pan. Discard any remaining marinade. Grill or broil chicken for 6-8 minutes per side or until cooked. Chicken is cooked when a food thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 165°F.
  4. Serve warm with a sprinkle of optional fresh cilantro or parsley.

Storage: Refrigerate in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
