Low FODMAP Tip: If you have introduced mushrooms back into your diet, opt for Oyster Mushrooms as they are the most low FODMAP friendly mushroom and can be enjoyed in 1 cup servings. If you do not have access to oyster mushrooms, the next best choice is canned champignon mushrooms at a serving of 1/2 cup according to Monash University.

Recipe Swaps + Substitutions
- Marsala Wine: As you’re reading through this keto Chicken Marsala recipe, you’re likely wondering, is marsala wine low FODMAP? In short, no it is not. Marsala wine is high in fructose and therefore not the best choice if you are newly following a low FODMAP diet and have not reintroduced fructose or do not tolerate it. A great substitution in that case would be to use your favorite dry white wine. You can learn more about FODMAPs and wine here! You can also opt for using additional chicken broth in lieu of alcohol.
- Non-Dairy Milk: This recipe uses almond milk, but you can use whole milk if you do not have an issue with lactose, or oat milk if you are not following a keto low carb diet.
- Garlic Oil: If you do not have the ability to make your own garlic infused olive oil and do not have access to purchasing, you can use plain extra virgin olive oil in its place. You will just miss the garlicy flavors in the dish as a result.

Paleo Keto Chicken Marsala
- Saute Pan with Lid
- 3 chicken breasts sliced thinly lengthwise
- 2/3 cup almond flour
- salt + pepper to taste
- 2 tbsp garlic oil
- 1 cup oyster mushrooms chopped
- 1/4 fresh parsley chopped
- 3/4 cup chicken broth divided into 1/4 cup portions
- 1/4 cup red vermouth or Marsala wine
- 1/4 cup almond milk
- Place parchment paper on a hard surface or counter top and add thinly sliced chicken breasts on top. Cover with another sheet of parchment + using a meat tenderizer or rolling pin, pound the chicken thinner being careful not to over-tenderize the meat. Opt for 2-3 whacks on each chicken breast.
- In a large bowl, add almond flour, salt + pepper and gently mix. Dredge chicken breasts in almond flour mixture, setting aside on a plate.
- In a large sauté pan over medium heat, heat garlic oil + sauté mushrooms and parsley, approximately 5 minutes.
- Once mushrooms are tender, add 1/4 cup of broth to the pan, then add in chicken breasts 2-3 pieces at a time depending on the size of your pan. Cook chicken breasts about 8 minutes on each side. Repeat the process until all chicken breasts have been fully cooked. Continue adding chicken broth 1/4 cup at a time as needed.
- Once chicken is fully cooked return to pan with mushrooms + parsley, adding in milk, 1/4 cup of broth + marsala or dry white wine, allowing to simmer an additional 10 minutes.
- Serve immediately over pasta or with a side of mashed potatoes.
