Who doesn’t love a filling, nutritious & family-friendly meal that’s ready in about 30 minutes?
If that sounds like something you’re interested in than keep reading because this keto coconut chicken curry combines all of those things.
It’s a long time favorite of mine and I made it countless times over the last couple of years.

At first, keto curry sounds like an oxymoron – how can something that’s notoriously carb heavy like curry be keto-friendly?
Well, with the right adjustments and ingredients it’s possible!

Rice becomes cauliflower rice, low carb vegetables instead of high carb ones and carbs are diligently calculated.

 
What I love about this recipe:

  • You’ll get a good amount of high-quality protein!
  • It’s super healthy & packed with micronutrients.
  • It’s paleo/whole30-friendly.
  • It’s absolutely perfect for meal prepping!

    KETO COCONUT CHICKEN CURRY INGREDIENTS:

    This section is where I share explanations and suggestions for the ingredients needed for this recipe.

    (You can find the exact amounts needed on the recipe card at the end of this post.)

     

  • high-quality chicken breast
    I know that high-quality meat can be very expensive, but I highly recommend going for it if you can!
    The quality of the meat truly does make a difference in meat-heavy recipes like this one.
  • onion, garlic & fresh ginger: finely chopped
  • coconut milk
  • vegetables: red bell pepper, broccoli

    You can add other vegetables as well or swap the bell pepper & broccoli for other kinds, just be sure to keep their carb content in mind.
    I for example like to add a small amount of carrot (& cashews – not a vegetable, I know ????) as well, but I listed it as optional as it does increase the carb count!

  • spices: red curry paste, chicken masala, coriander powder, curry powder, salt, pepper
  • cauliflower rice
    You can also eat the keto coconut chicken curry without the cauliflower rice (it’ll reduce the carbs) but it’ll probably satisfy you more and longer if you serve it with cauliflower rice.

    You don’t have to buy it somewhere for an expensive price, cauliflower rice is super easy to make yourself!
    I’ve described the process in the instructions as well.

    Remove the florets from your cauliflower head and chop them roughly.
    Add them into a food processor and blend for 30-45 seconds or until no big chunks of cauliflower are left.
     

    12

    Add the raw cauliflower rice into a large frying pan.
    Add 1-2 tbsp of ghee or a heat resistant cooking oil and fry on medium-high for approx. 5 minutes.

    Store in your fridge in a suitable air-tight container.
