Boneless, skinless chicken thighs are a staple in our household. I love using different homemade spice blends to transform plain chicken to fit almost any cuisine. In fact, today’s blend filled with cumin, coriander, cinnamon and turmeric has so much North African/Middle Eastern-inspired flavor. It is quite simply delicious!

Plus, this Low Fodmap Moroccan Chicken pairs perfectly with last week’s Low Fodmap Quinoa Tabbouleh.

I love olives, bacon and puppies (in no particular order) and hate feeling like crap because of certain foods. By day, I help people as a supermarket dietitian. By night, I create easy and fun, low fodmap recipes for you (and me)! :)

  1. My husband has to eat Low Fodmap foods from now on due to IBS. I am so excited to have found your website! I have already started writing down recipes to try. On this post, I have a question. I do not have a grill or boiler. Could I bake it in the over or cook in the skillet? (Moroccan Chicken).

    1. Thank you, Ashley!! This recipe will certainly work in either the oven or the skillet. I would recommend baking at 400F for 20-35 minutes depending on thickness until done.
