Gluten-Free and Low-FODMAP Chicken with Broccoli

Hunter Mountain SkiingI’ve taken my son skiing a few times this season, and he’s really loved it.  The conditions weren’t perfect as we chose some of the coldest days of the season, but I’ve been so impressed with his ability to pick it up.  Can’t wait to get back out there soon!

We visited Hunter Mountain in NY but are itching to get further west for a different ski experience!

Following on the theme from my last post, I have another gluten-free and low-FODMAP Chinese food recipe for you today!  We ate this one for days, and it was great every time. Please note that I did use broccoli in the recipe as it is my son’s favorite.  While broccoli has shown up on some lists of foods to avoid or limit when following a low-FODMAP diet,  however, theMonash University has recently published new resultsshowing the breakdown of FODMAP rating for 1 cup.
