Chicken Coconut Curry

Low carb dieting becomes dreadfully discouraging when all you’re craving is chicken curry over basmati rice and naan bread… Fortunately, we found a solution! Creamy coconut curry, low carb naan, and roasted garlic cauliflower rice. These recipes may look intimidating and time-consuming, but I made all three of these dishes in a little over an hour!

Chicken Coconut Curry
Tender chicken breast smothered with a creamy coconut curry sauce and sautéed peppers will bring the flavor of India to your table in this simple, keto-friendly dish. The thing I love most about making curry is that there is so much room to improvise! If you are a recipe follower then this recipe was made for you, if you are an innovator (like myself), this recipe is also for you!

Instructions
  1. Begin by heating a large skillet and adding the coconut oil. Chop your 2 chicken breasts, and place them in the skillet on medium heat.
  2. Season chicken with salt, turmeric, cayenne, ginger and garlic powder.
  3. Wash and roughly chop the bell pepper. This is where the innovation comes in, I chose to use a red and orange bell pepper, I cut them into strips rather than a traditional chop. Immediately place peppers into skillet with chicken.
  4. Once peppers are tender (after about 7 minutes), add coconut milk, peanut butter and curry paste. I used a red thai curry paste.
  5. This curry has a smoky, paprika-like flavor because it is made from roasted red peppers. Feel free to experiment with your curries! A green paste, or even a yellow powder will work great in this recipe too, it all is dependent on personal preference.
  6. After chicken is cooked through, turn off heat and stir in xantham gum. The xantham gum will thicken your sauce like a roux would. Serve curry over riced cauliflower and with naan bread!
