Friendly Snacks: Greek Loaded Hummus Board

RECIPE
Friendly To: Low-FODMAP, Acid Reflux, GERD, IBS

Woo hoo! March Madness is almost here! 

This means that it is time for lots of delicious food (oh and I guess some basketball too!). This Greek Loaded Hummus Board is full of delicious appetizer type snacks that are on the lighter and healthier side for a snacking experience that tastes delicious but that won't bother your GERD. 

This Greek Loaded Hummus Board is full of homemade hummus dip, Greek chicken skewers, peppers, veggies, pita bread, olives and more. A delicious board that will keep you snacking the whole game but is lighter so you don't get that super full feeling that no one likes. 

I love whipping up a huge batch of this hummus and snacking on it all week. It is awesome with veggies or spread on a sandwich. The chicken skewers are a fun way to serve the chicken since it is for an appetizer. I marinated the chicken in an Italian herb blend, lemon zest, olive oil, and a Low-FODMAP essence of garlic & onion salt. You can grill the chicken, bake it or even pan fry it and just add the skewer in after to make it easy to eat. It is delicious dipped in hummus or on its own.

Feel free to make this board your own and add in whatever ingredients you have on hand and like best. Cucumber, bell peppers, celery, carrots or anything that doesn’t trigger your symptoms would be great for the veggies. You can use crackers, pretzels, pita bread or anything like that for your grain. To keep this loaded hummus board Low-FODMAP, choose gluten-free grains for your picks.

Ingredients

Greek Chicken Skewers

  • Zest from 1 Lemon
  • 1 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 3 TBSP Garlic Infused Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Low-FODMAP Essence of Onion Salt
  • 2 tsp Italian Blend Spices
  • 1 ½ lbs Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts- cut into thin strips

Garlic Hummus

  • 1- 14.5 oz. Can of Low-Sodium Chickpeas- drained (save 2 TBSP liquid)
  • 2 TBSP Garlic Infused Olive Oil
  • ½ tsp Low-FODMAP Essence of Garlic Salt
  • Zest from 1 Lemon
  • ½ tsp Low-FODMAP Essence of Onion Salt

Board Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Carrot Sticks
  • 1 Cup Mini Bell Peppers
  • 1 Cup Sliced Celery
  • 1 Cup Sliced Cucumber
  • 1 Cup Sliced Pitas
  • 25 Crunchmaster Crackers (or any crackers)
  • ½ Cup Kalamata Olives

Instructions

  1. Place all of the ingredients for the chicken skewers in a zipped bag or a closed container and mix well. Add in the chicken strips. If time allows, let it marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. In a food processor, blend the chickpeas, olive oil, Low-FODMAP essence of garlic salt, 2 tablespoons of chickpea liquid, lemon zest and Low-FODMAP essence of onion salt until the chickpeas are very smooth. You may need to scrape the sides with a spatula to ensure everything is well blended. Scoop into a small bowl to serve.
  3. Remove the chicken strips from the bag one at a time and skewer on a kebab stick. Grill chicken for about 3-4 minutes per side until chicken is cooked through and has some grill marks. Alternatively, you can cook the chicken in a large skillet with a tablespoon of olive oil until cooked through and then add skewers after the chicken is cooked.
  4. Slice all of your veggies and pita. On a large cutting board or another serving board, arrange the hummus, chicken skewers, veggies, pitas, crackers and olives. 
  5. Enjoy!

Notes

The hummus can be made a day or two before. The chicken can be marinated the night before so you just need to grill it the day of if you prefer. Choose gluten-free pita or crackers if this is one of your FODMAP triggers.
