LOW FODMAP Chicken San Choy Bau


A healthy take on the old favourite, San Choy Bau.

When you are trying to eat more nutritious foods, it does not mean you have to miss out on tasty dishes!
Forget the pre-made sauces that are laden with sugars, fillers and god knows what else.

The secret is to make it as easy as possible and start to taste real fresh foods and fresher flavours!!

This meal is so simple, I mean seriously simple. Great for a mid week dish that you don’t need to think about.

I’m not kidding 15 mins to get everything sorted, BOOM!
I’m actually salivating writing this, its sooo good 😀

You can even cook a double batch and freeze left overs for lunch!
