Low FODMAP Asian-style potato mash with chicken
A few months ago, I shared my very first potato mash recipe on the blog: a sweet potato mash with spinach and goat cheese. As this recipe was very well received, I decided it was time for another recipe!
Potato mash is a perfect winter dish and as we are currently in the middle of winter, this is the perfect moment to share one. I made a low FODMAP Asian style potato mash with chicken!
As I already shared in my sweet potato mash recipe, the most classic Dutch dish that everybody here knows is called stamppot. It is made from mashed potatoes with a leafy green stirred into it.
“Boerenkool stamppot” is one of the best known versions and it is made with mashed potatoes and kale stirred into it. Often served with a sausage on the side and gravy on top.
I am not a fan of traditional stamppot recipes at all. I don’t like mashed potatoes too much and the combination of the soft mashed potatoes with the pieces of leafy greens into it, just doesn’t make me happy. I don’t like the texture at all.
Lots of my Dutch readers love having some low FODMAP stamppot recipes though and that’s why I keep making them. I cannot only cook what I like myself 😉
I have never seen a dish similar to stamppot in other countries (just plain mashed potatoes) and I think the best translation for this dish is “potato mash”, but do let me know if you think it should be called differently!
When I make potato mash recipes, I like to make them with a twist and this time I made an Asian-style potato mash with chicken marinated in soy sauce.
For the veggies that are being stirred into the potato mash, I choose bok choy and bean sprouts. If you want, you can also add some low FODMAP mushrooms (canned mushrooms or oyster mushrooms) to the potato mash.
I used my boyfriend as a test person, as he LOVES mashed potatoes. He is from Slovenia, so he didn’t grow up with stamppot like I did.
But in Slovenia they love mashed potatoes too and he is a big fan of the Dutch potato mash recipes. He devoured the entire portion of this Asian-style potato mash by himself.
So it is safe to say that this recipe was a success! I hope you will like it as much as he did.Print

- Fry the chicken thigh in a pan until cooked on all sides. In the mean-time, heat some olive oil in another pan and shortly fry the mushrooms (if you use them). Add the bok choy and the bean sprouts and fry them for a few minutes. Add 1 tbsp soy sauce to the veggies and optionally 1 tsp sambal (chili paste) for some spiciness (if you don’t like spicy, you can use 1/2 tsp or leave this out).
