Low FODMAP creamy mac and cheese with chicken and spinach

Today, I made one my favorite recipes from when I was a kid low FODMAP. A delicious low FODMAP creamy mac and cheese with chicken and spinach.

My mum used to make this mac and cheese with chicken, spinach, mushrooms and a lot of grated cheese. This low FODMAP version doesn’t contain mushrooms, but is just as good!

A tasty recipe for a creamy mac and cheese with chicken, spinach and grated cheese. Low FODMAP, gluten-free and low lactose.


  • 100160 gr gluten-free macaroni
  • 1 package (200ml) lactose-free cooking cream (I used Minus L)
  • 300 gr spinach
  • 200 gr chicken thigh fillet
  • 60 gr grated cheese
  • Parsley, oregano, cayenne pepper
  • Pepper and salt


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Boil the macaroni according to the instructions on the package. Pick the amount of macaroni according to how much you eat.
  3. Cut the chicken thigh into strips. Heat some oil or cooking spray in a pan and fry the chicken thigh until it is cooked.
  4. Season the chicken with pepper, salt, parsley, oregano and some cayenne pepper.
  5. Add the spinach to the chicken and fry for a few minutes. Remove some of the liquid from the pan, otherwise, your macaroni dish will be too wet.
  6. Add the cooking cream to the chicken and the spinach in the pan and heat for a few minutes. Taste and add some extra pepper, salt and spices if necessary.
  7. Stir in half of the cheese.
  8. Grease an oven dish and put the pasta in. Divide the cream sauce on top. Stir everything together and sprinkle the other half of the cheese on top.
  9. Place the oven dish in the oven for 15 minutes.
