Description

These easy sheet pan pineapple chicken lettuce wraps are the perfect low FODMAP dinner that is packed with flavor! You can really make them your own with other added vegetables, beans, and starchy sides/tortillas.


Ingredients

Scale

For the Sauce:

  • 3 Tablespoons avocado oil or other oil of choice
  • 3 Tablespoons lime juice (juice from 1 lime)
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne (or for lower spice, use red pepper flakes)

For Roasting:

  • 1.5 pounds chicken thighs
  • 34 large bell peppers (about 1 pound)
  • 2 cups pineapple chunks (fresh, pre-cut, or canned)
  • Lettuce wraps for serving
  • Optional: can serve with white rice, or white potatoes for a Low-FODMAP starchy carbohydrate

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Prepare two baking sheets for the oven. You can use a wire rack insert for your sheet pans if you have it, but this isn’t totally necessary.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the sauce ingredients. Set aside.
  4. Cut the chicken into chunks or strips and add to the bowl of sauce. Cut the bell peppers into chunks or strips and add to the bowl of sauce. Add the chunked pineapple and stir to combine.
  5. Spread the chicken/bell peppers/pineapple mixture out across the two sheet pans. I recommend giving them space and avoid overlapping if you can.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes in your pre-heated 400ºF oven.
  7. Optional (for the char!): turn your oven to broil. Broil each tray in the top rack for 3-5 minutes on high to get a little bit of crispy char. This is how we’re trying to mimic the high-heat flavor of fajitas.
  8. Serve with butter lettuce wraps for the gentlest option on your tummy, or add rice or potatoes (low FODMAP), or your other sides of choice.

Notes

If you are not sensitive to FODMAPs, you can slice about half a medium red onion and combine and roast with the chicken, peppers, and pineapple. You can also serve these in your tortillas of choice – I love cassava flour tortillas!
