 Drawing inspiration from a signature item at Nando’s, an Afro-Portuguese restaurant we visited in Auckland, this is one scrumptious (and spicy) way to kick-things-up! This Low Fodmap Peri Peri Chicken is spicy, but oh-so-flavorful!. It’s a great way to switch things up when  you’re feeling a little tired of plain ol’ grilled chicken. I like to serve my peri peri with a side of rice (or oven fries) and steamed broccoli.

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)! :)
