Low FODMAP Chicken Teriyaki Sushi Cups

Low FODMAP Chicken Teriyaki Sushi Cups

These low FODMAP sushi cups are perfect for the little ones - a fun family activity to get everyone in the kitchen and eating healthy nutritious food.

The seaweed in these sushi cups is a great source of vitamins and minerals, in particular iodine, which is great for our thyroid function. It also boosts the taste, texture, and flavour profile of any dish!

If you're on the low FODMAP diet, you probably stay away from teriyaki sauce, which usually contains high FODMAP ingredients like golden syrup and garlic. We've used a teriyaki recipe that is quick, low FODMAP and tastes just as good (if not better) than any store-bought teriyaki sauce. 

Definitely recommend giving this one a go. Let us know what you think by tagging us @fodbods :) 


  • 500 g chicken breast/thigh, cut into small cubes and marinated in Homemade Teriyaki Sauce
  • 1 cup sushi rice
  • 3 tbsp sushi seasoning
  • 2 tbsp low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 carrot, cut into small cubes
  • ½ large continental cucumber, cut into small cubes
  • 3 nori sheets, cut into quarters
  • + sesame seeds and chopped spring onion to top (if desired)


  1. Marinate the chicken for approx. one hour in the teriyaki sauce, then pan-fry on high heat.
  2. While the chicken is cooking, cook the rice as per packet instructions then stir through sushi seasoning and mayonnaise.
  3. Once the chicken and rice are both cooked, set aside to cool, and then mix through carrot and cucumber.
  4. Place the nori sheets into a muffin tray and then add in rice filling (you should end up with 12 sushi cups).
  5. Once evenly distributed, place into the fridge to set.
  6. If desired, top with sesame seeds and spring onion. Enjoy!
