Easy Coconut Curry Chicken with Vegetables

Paleo, Keto, Gluten Free, Whole30

This Coconut Curry Chicken with Vegetables is not only a super flavorful dish, but it’s also easy to make and healthy for you! IF you are looking for a way to spice up your chicken dinner, I suggest you try this recipe. I first made curry chicken about ten years ago. I watched the food network, and one of the hosts talked about his favorite chicken dish was Chicken curry, he called it. I was highly interested in trying this dish since I have never had it before, so I went to the grocery store and purchased all the ingredients. Over time I mastered and customized the recipe to my liking, I know you usually do not see red onions and scallion in your curry chicken, but I added some of the vegetables to mine.

Plus, if you like spicy foods like me, I also added some Habanero peppers to this recipe. I usually make this recipe with Potatoes, but since I am on this keto diet, I have been cooking this curry chicken with just meat and vegetables. If you love some potatoes, add them to this recipe, about two Medium-sized Yukon Gold Potatoes. I would add them about 20 minutes before your curry is finished.

What kind of Curry to use?

Which curry you choose for this curry chicken is SO important and makes this either a fantastic dish or just an alright dish. So, make sure you find yourself either a tasty curry powder or delicious curry paste! I recommend using Jamaican Curry Powder. The one I am using came straight from Jamaica, my office manager is from Jamaica, and she went back home on vacation and brought back some authentic Curry powder. Many of the significant Supermarkets have an ethnic area so that you might find it there or on Amazon.

What goes with Coconut Curry Chicken?

Rice is the noticeable answer here, I think. If you are keto or paleo, then you can also use cauliflower rice. I also like to eat some greens on the side, so any simple vegetable sautéed also work swell, such as:

Brussel Sprouts


Vegetable Stir Fry


Warning though, you are going to get SO hungry cooking this because the coconut milk smells amazing!
