Smothered with Love Chicken

I found a recipe for Fancy Pants Chicken…on Pinterest and Facebook.  Love Love Love that name!  But of course, it was not fully suitable for the low FODMAP diet…so I tweaked the  recipe and here it is!!

smothered chickenYou’ll love this cheesy lusciousness.  So good.  All the flavors work so nicely together.

All you do is top boneless chicken breasts with prosciutto and spinach.  Drizzle with a delicious low FODMAP sauce and bake it up.drizzling sauce over smothered chicken

Remove from the oven 5 minutes prior to being done and top with shredded mozzarella cheese….and you will feel the love literally oozing from this tasty dish.

We enjoyed the smothered chicken with sprouted red rice ( a new product from Trader Joes–cooks up in 3 minutes! love that!), and tri-colored carrots. Easy and tummy friendly!
