Pulled Chicken Tortillas with coleslaw

Pulled pork has been on my “have to make low FODMAP” list for a very long time. I think I even added it to my food bucket list for 2017. But if I think recipes are difficult to make, I always keep postponing to make them.

The fact that I have to go to a butcher to buy pork shoulder is keeping me from making it. In order to make a “pulled” recipe anyway, I decided to start simple with pulled chicken.

To make pulled chicken you just have to buy some chicken breast, boil it and pull it apart with a fork. Too easy not to try it and it is very tasty! I made delicious low FODMAP pulled chicken tortillas with coleslaw.
