Grilled Chicken Satay Kabobs (Low-FODMAP)

Grilled Chicken Satay Kabobs {Low-FODMAP, Gluten-Free}  /  Delicious as it Looks

I'm still here! It's been a while since my last blog post. I've been working on a big project and gotten behind in pretty much everything in my life right now, including this blog. I'm stressed and exhausted, but I'm finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and I hope it will all be worth it. Right now I put all of my energy into working at my new engineering job in the mornings, then what energy I have left goes into my project in the afternoon and evening. I end up not having any energy left for anything, including my poor neglected blog. So I hope you are still with me, because I have a tasty recipe to share today!

It's been raining cats and dogs here in Iowa lately, but we've had a few nice days in which to grill. I recently adapted a recipe from for Chicken Satay Kabobs. They are so easy to make and so flavorful. I served them with a rice pilaf (try my Herbed Basmati Rice) and sauteed zucchini.

Curry powder has been tested for FODMAPs and is considered low-FODMAP, but I like to make my own curry blend. I don't think I've made it the same way twice! I've given an example of the spices I typically use below the recipe. Adjust as needed or simply use store-bought curry powder.

  1. Just wanted to thank you for your blog! I have had IBS for as long as I can remember, went off gluten, limited dairy 10 years ago but still had issues and am just now delving into the world of low FODMAPs. It's definitely helping me but it's a little overwhelming and your blog has been great! I've been binge reading to copy down all your great recipes. I also live in Iowa and saw you used to! Thank you for your posts :)

    1. I'm so glad you are finding my blog useful! I'm actually back living in Iowa again! Cedar Rapids to be exact. Just moved back less than a year ago.
