Servings 2 people


  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
  • Spring onion greens* chopped

For the sauce

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 200g grated carrot 2 carrots
  • A dash of gluten free soy sauce
  • 400ml gluten free chicken stock check the link above for low FODMAP chicken stock cubes
  • 15 g frozen peas

For your spice mix

  • 2 tbsp gluten free plain flour
  • 2 heaped tsp of mild curry powder check the link above for low FODMAP curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes optional and more or less depending on how hot you want it!
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • pinch ground cumin


  • Start by bringing some water to the boil in a large saucepan. Once it's boiling, add your skinless, boneless chicken thighs, whole. Cook for around 8-10 minutes. Set aside to cool a little and then chop into bite-sized strips.
  • Now for the sauce. Prep your carrot - it doesn't have to be grated, but spiralised works great too. If you'd prefer, chopped carrots are a-ok - they just take longer to cook.
  • In your wok, heat your coconut oil. Once melted, add your carrots and fry until slightly softened.
  • Add your flour, curry powder, chilli flakes, cumin and ginger to the wok and coat the carrot.
  • Pour over your chicken stock and add a dash of gf soy sauce.
  • Allow to simmer for around 10 minutes and then add your cooked, chopped chicken thighs. The sauce should be lovely and thick by this point and ready to serve.
  • Serve on top of a bed of sticky jasmine rice and sprinkle some fresh spring onion greens on top.
  • Enjoy!
