Chicken Curry – Low FODMAP

Chicken is such a versatile meat. It‘s affordable, easy to cook and works well with so many cuisines. I especially love to cook with chicken drumsticks, because they are one of the cheaper cuts, are great for slow cooking and they have a built in handle, which the kids love! This recipe is Low FODMAP, which means that people with IBS and other gut issues may find this easier to digest. It’s gentler on the guts but still full of flavour!!!
