Low-FODMAP Fried Chicken; Gluten-free

Although this recipe has not been lab tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients * using available FODMAP data at time of posting

Serves 6-8

Prep time: 15-20 min

Bake time: 30 min

Total time: 45-55 min

Bake: 450 F

Equipment: Large Dutch Oven or skillet for deep frying


    • Check for gluten-free vinegar if necessary, can also substitute lemon juice
  • 2 cups low-FODMAP, all purpose, gluten-free flour (I used Authentic Foods GF Classical Blend)


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F
  • Lay down a piece of parchment paper or aluminum foil on 2 baking sheets
  • Making the batter:
    • Whisk together the low-FODMAP ‘buttermilk’, paprika, and half each of the salt and pepper
  • Making the low-FODMAP flour coating:
    • Whisk together low-FODMAP flour and half of the salt and pepper
  • Set a large cast-iron skillet on medium-high heat
  • As the pan is heating, line up the chicken, the bowl of batter, and the spiced low-FODMAP flour
  • Pour the oil into the hot pan
  • When the oil has reached 375 degrees F, dip a piece of chicken in the batter
  • Shake off any excess liquid
  • Dip the chicken in the flour and coat it entirely
  • Place the chicken in the hot oil
  • Repeat with all the pieces of chicken
  • Don’t overcrowd the pan
  • Flip the chicken pieces when the bottoms are nicely browned (about 3 minutes per side)
  • When both sides are browned, put the chicken pieces onto the prepared baking sheets
  • When all the chicken has been browned, put the baking sheet in the oven at 450 F
  • Cook the chicken until the legs have reached an internal temperature of 185 F and the breasts measure 155 F
    • While ovens vary, this step may take 20-30 minutes
  • Add salt and pepper to taste before enjoying.  Serve hot.
  • I love it with this low-FODMAP All-American Potato Salad!

  • Tender and delicious, low-FODMAP Fried Chicken is moist on the inside, crispy on the outside!
