Cajun-spiced Chicken Nourish Bowl

Hello FODMAP-ers!

I love whipping up meals that can be layered nicely into one bowl full of tummy-friendly goodness. Today’s recipe is just that…a delicious low FODMAP Cajun-spiced Chicken Nourish Bowl.

This post is sponsored by my friends at Casa de Sante…but as always my opinions about Casa de Sante‘s products are my very own!

Casa de Sante’s Cajun/Creole low FODMAP certified seasoning is right up my alley…a mix of salt, asafoetida, paprika, oregano, basil, white pepper, black pepper, cayenne pepper and thyme. It is so good with just a hint of heat and a ton of Louisiana taste!

I used the Casa de Sante Cajun seasoning along with brown sugar, Dijon mustard, garlic infused oil, and lemon juice to create a sweet and tangy marinade for boneless chicken. These flavors together are amazing.  I marinated the chicken for a couple hours but you could do more (overnight) or less (1 hour) depending on your timeline.

I cooked up the chicken in my dutch oven along with the marinade, creating the most flavorful, slightly caramelized chicken.

In the last couple minutes of cooking, I added red bell pepper strips (you could add tri-color peppers if you’d like).  The bell pepper strips were fork tender, still vibrant in color and not over-cooked!

I served this goodness, over a big bowl of brown rice, and topped with fresh chopped parsley, mint, scallion greens, sliced jalapeno pepper and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

Ahhhh….I love this kind of meal.

The Casa de Sante Cajun Seasoning is not too spicy and it does NOT contain garlic or onion, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

How ’bout you give this recipe a whirl? 🙂

    This sounds phenomenal! On a scale of “you forgot to add the cayenne” to “call the fire department” how spicy would you say the chicken is? I love spices, but I have the taste buds of a 4-year-old, so I try to keep things on the tame side.
