Chicken Arrabiata

IChickenArrabiata pulled out some chicken thighs from the freezer this morning and needed some inspiration…so I looked through my cookbooks and found a delicious-sounding pasta recipe called ‘Chicken Arrabiata’ in my Hamlyn ‘200 Chicken Recipes’ book. As usual, I had to make a few adjustments to make it FODMAPS friendly (i.e. remove the onion and garlic) but the final product was very tasty and my husband licked his bowl clean – which is always a good sign! Our 15 month old daughter also gobbled it all up, so you know it’s also family friendly.

I did a quick Google search for what ‘arrabiata’ means – and apparently it means ‘angry’ because the dish packs a nice punch of heat and spice. The dish I made this evening wasn’t too spicy, but I guess it comes down to the Cook and how much spice you add!

Ingredients (Serves 4)

4 chicken thighs, boned, skinned, cut into cubes

1 teaspoon Portuguese Chicken spice or Paprika, to taste

1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (or dried crushed chilies), to taste

400g (13oz) can chopped tomatoes

250ml Massels Salt Reduced Liquid Chicken Stock

4 cups of San Remo Gluten Free pasta

Olive oil

Salt and pepper

Method

1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and add the chicken. Fry for 5 minutes until lightly browned.

2. Mix in the Portuguese Chicken spice and Cayenne Pepper and cook for 1 minute, then stir in the tomatoes, chicken stock and a little salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, then cover and simmer for 20 minutes until the chicken is tender. (And it was oh-so-tender tonight!)

Meanwhile…

3. Fill a second saucepan with water, bring to the boil, then add the pasta. Simmer for 10 minutes until just tender, then drain.

4. Divide the pasta among four bowls and pour in the Chicken Arrabiata sauce.

5. Enjoy!!

Fructose Friendly Chicken and Vegetable Soup

As we enter the colder months Down Under, there’s nothing better than a chicken and vegetable soup. But everyone seems to make it with onion! However, my husband and I have worked out a way to make delicious soup that contains no onion or garlic and is gluten free. It CAN BE possible!

Fructose Friendly Chicken and Vegetable Soup (Serves 10)

  • 1/2 celery, chopped finely
  • 4 medium sized carrots, chopped finely
  • 6 small chat potatoes, chopped finely
  • 800g chicken breast, diced
  • 2 litres Massel Gourmet Plus Salt Reduced Chicken Liquid Stock (fructose friendly – no onion and garlic)
  • Spice to taste

Method

1. Combine chopped celery, carrots and potatoes in a large pot (5 litre).

2. Cut up chicken breast, leaving the fat on, and add to the pot.

3. Pour in 2 litres of chicken stock. Add additional water to pot if required.

4. Set to boil for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

5. Gradually add your choice of spices to taste.

6. Serve and enjoy! Refrigerate leftovers and reheat to consume again the next day. 🙂
