Navigating the vibrant world of Australian online casinos can be as intricate as understanding the nuances of a good diet. Neosurf casinos, in particular, are generating buzz in the https://online-casino-au.com/online-casinos/neosurf/ online gaming community. These platforms, with their efficient prepaid voucher system, are not just catching the attention of avid gamblers but also of those who value discretion and financial control.

Switching from the virtual world to the more tangible experiences in traditional Australian casinos, there’s another trend that’s catching the eye – the Low-FODMAP menu. FODMAPs, which stand for fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols, are specific types of carbohydrates that can be hard for some people to digest. Recognizing the needs of patrons with sensitive diets, many Australian casinos are now offering Low-FODMAP menu options. This means, while you try your luck at the tables, you can indulge in delightful dishes that agree with your tummy. It’s truly a win-win, where health-conscious choices meet entertainment, capturing the essence of modern Australian leisure. Whether you’re placing bets online or relishing a meal at a casino restaurant, Australia’s gaming scene ensures every experience is top-notch.

the low-fodmap IBS solution

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: 4-6 *

*Although not high in FODMAPs, since the sauce is very rich, test for your tolerance if fat is a trigger for your IBS.

Prep time: 10 min

Cook time: 20 min

Total time: 30 min

Equipment: Large heavy bottomed skillet (I like cast iron)


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or your preferred oil for pan cooking; divided
  • 24 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon low-FODMAP Happy Spices Italian seasoning
  • 5 tablespoons low-FODMAP, GF flour; divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus additional for sprinkling
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper, plus additional for sprinkling
  • 1/2 cup (27g) chopped sun dried tomatoes
    • If you have oil-packed, then drain well, and ensure no onion or garlic added
    • 8g is one low-FODMAP serving
    • Higher amounts contain high levels of fructose
  • 1 cup low-FODMAP chicken broth, prepared
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream or canned coconut cream (not the same as ‘cream of coconut’)
    • 1/4 cup is one low-FODMAP serving
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus additional for serving
    • Parmesan is naturally low in FODMAPs
  • 2 teaspoons garlic-infused oil
  • 2 teaspoons shallot or onion infused oil
    • Infused oils contain all the flavors but not the FODMAPs! You can enjoy these lovely additions to your recipe.  Check out my low-FODMAP Top 11 tips and tricks to explain why!
  • 5 ounces (143 g) fresh spinach, lightly torn
    • 75 g is one low-FODMAP serving
    • Higher amounts contain high levels of fructans
  • 3 tablespoons (14g) fresh basil; chopped, plus for garnish


  • Pound your chicken breasts using a mallet or rolling pin between plastic wrap or parchment to tenderize
  • Place 4 tablespoons of flour, low-FODMAP Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper on a shallow plate, and mix lightly
  • Lightly dredge chicken in the flour mixture
  • Heat 1 & 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, or other oil, in a skillet over medium high heat
  • When the pan is hot, add the chicken pieces and brown on both sides, about 2-4 minutes per side
  • Remove chicken to a plate to keep warm (it will finish cooking later)
  • To the skillet, add remaining 1 & 1/2 tablespoons olive oil and sun-dried tomatoes, and cook for 1 minute, or until fragrant, over medium or medium low (if you used oil packed tomatoes, they may not be as noticeably fragrant)
  • Whisk in the remaining 1 tablespoon LF flour and allow to brown for approximately 1 minute
  • Add the heavy cream, LF chicken broth, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, 2 infused oils, and stir to combine
  • Allow to cook until the sauce begins to simmer and thicken, about 3 minutes
  • Add the spinach and reduce heat if needed (the spinach will shrink as it cooks)
  • Stir until the spinach wilts slightly
  • Add the basil and mix it well into the sauce
  • Taste sauce and add salt and pepper to your preference
  • Add the chicken back into the skillet and turn to coat in the sauce
  • Simmer until the chicken is heated through, and internal temperature is 165F, about 5 minutes
  • Garnish with additional fresh parmesan and fresh basil and serve alongside your preferred low-FODMAP, GF Pasta or potatoes (try my low-FODMAP Lemon and Rosemary Roasted Potatoes!)
