I have a not-so-secret confession: I have an odd obsession with handling and preparing chicken. I couldn’t eat raw chicken during either of my pregnancies and was extremely picky about what I could consume.
In the end, I’m worried about undercooking it. As a result, I tend to overcook the chicken, leaving it dry and harsh. Gross, I recently decided to prepare chicken just like I would if it were baked, but in the air fryer.
The low FODMAP air fryer chicken breast turns out to be AMAZING. Just because you’re using an air fryer doesn’t imply your food needs to be breaded. Instead, this recipe requires only a few ingredients and yields deliciously moist and tender results.

- Extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp ground pepper
- 1 tsp smoked paprika

What exactly is FODMAP?
FODMAP stands for fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols, which are short-chain carbohydrates (sugars) that are poorly absorbed by the small intestine. Some people have intestinal problems after consuming them. Among the symptoms are: Diarrhea, Cramping, Constipation, Bloating in the stomach, Flatulence, and gas.
What can I eat on the FODMAP diet?
Foods that cause symptoms differ from individual to person. To alleviate IBS and SIBO symptoms, avoid high FODMAP meals that irritate the stomach, such as Milk, yogurt, and ice cream made from dairy products. Products made from wheat, such as cereal, bread, crackers, lentils with beans, artichokes, asparagus, onions, and garlic, are examples of vegetables. Fruits like apples, cherries, pears, and peaches.
Instead, center your meals on low-FODMAP items like meat and eggs, brie, camembert, cheddar, and feta are examples of cheeses. Milk from almonds and grains such as rice, quinoa, and oats are great options.
You can consume veggies like eggplant, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, and zucchini. Fruits that are perfect for a low-FODMAP diet include grapes, oranges, strawberries, blueberries, and pineapple.
Your doctor or nutritionist should provide you with a complete list of FODMAP foods.
