Low FODMAP | Recipe

INGREDIENTS :

  • 2 tablespoons garlic-infused olive oil
  • ½ cup (45 grams) chopped leek leaves (green parts only)
  • 300 grams drained, canned tomatillos (approximately ½ of a 28 oz. can)
  • ½ to 1 jalapeño, halved and seeds removed (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 4 cups low FODMAP chicken broth
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • ½ cup finely chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  • Salt and pepper

INSTRUCTIONS :

Slow Cooker:

  1. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Saute leek leaves until bright green, fragrant, and soft. Place the sauteed leek leaves into a blender. Add tomatillos, jalapeno, cumin, and ¼ cup water. Blend until smooth.
  2. Pour tomatillo mixture into a slow cooker. Add chicken broth. Stir to mix. Add chicken. Cover and cook for 6-8 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, remove chicken from slow cooker and shred. (I like to use two forks.) Return the shredded chicken back into the slow cooker and stir to mix. Add lime juice and optional cilantro. Adjust flavor as needed with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve warm topped with optional garnishes.

Instant Pot:

  1. Press the “Saute” setting on the Instant Pot. Once hot, add oil and saute leek leaves until bright green, fragrant, and soft. Cancel the “Saute” setting. Add tomatillos, jalapeño, cumin, chicken broth, and chicken. Place the lid on top of the Instant Pot and secure. Set vent to “Sealing”.
  2. Select the “Soup” setting on the Instant Pot. Adjust the time to 30 minutes on “High Pressure” and cook. After cooking, let the pressure naturally release for 20 minutes before carefully switching the vent to “Venting” and releasing any remaining pressure.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, remove chicken from the Instant Pot and shred. (I like to use two forks.) Set the shredded chicken aside.
  4. Using an immersion blender, blend the remaining tomatillo mixture in the Instant Pot until smooth. Return the shredded chicken back to the Instant Pot and stir to mix. Add lime juice to taste, as well as the (optional) finely chopped cilantro. Adjust flavor as needed with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Serve warm topped with optional garnishes.
