    How to Make Easy Paleo Chicken Curry

    For this simple chicken curry, you’ll cook up the onions and spices, add the chicken, and then create the curry sauce with coconut milk and pumpkin puree to bring it all together. To keep this recipe grain-free, serve over cauliflower rice. But if white rice is part of your routine, that works, too.

    Feel free to add other veggies to experiment with your favorite flavor profile.

    1. This recipe fell flat on me 🙁 I think I needed more seasoning in the curry mixture – avoid my mistake and make sure you taste and adjust as you cook this.

      1. Hi Hollie, you were right. Adding salt, pepper, and garlic powder did the trick. It’s still a little flat, but it’s no longer bland.

          1. Curry is a mixture of different spices, not a single spice in and of itself. It can be achieved by mixing spices separately.

            1. I will try this week! with the spoon of curry powder. We have a delicious curry dish at the restaurant where i work but it always makes me feel bloated.

    2. This is YUMMY!!!!!!!! I went ahead and sautéed the mushrooms and zucchinis with the onions because I used a rotisserie chicken. I also used smoked paprika, and the flavor was definitely on point!

      1. Hi Amber,

        Since there isn’t an emphasis on calorie counting in paleo, I’ve not provided that information. You can easily use an app / site called My Fitness Pal to track all of that if you’re really curious.

        1. I do use myfitnespal – i’m trying to make the count as accurate as possible, that’s why I ask. Not all of your recipes are listed there

          1. Hi Amber…then you’d have to type in each ingredient separately. I wish I had a team to do all that for me, but alas, I don’t…yet 😉

            On another note, we don’t want a huge daily surplus of caloric intake but stressing out about such accuracy isn’t good for health either!

        2. Yes, on MyFitnessPal you can just copy the address of where the recipe is and paste it. The app does all the calculations for you. It even allows you to change things easily.

    3. I loved this! I made a huge batch and have been taking it to work 🙂 I just used mashed pumpkin too and it has so much flavour. Thanks for sharing!!

    4. I found this dish rather bland. It definitely did not taste like curry although it was hot because of the red pepper flakes. I added some salt and pepper and good dollop of curry powder along with some coconut milk and it was better.

    5. I tried it and it was fast and easy. I changed it up by adding sea salt, 1 tsp. cardamon and changing out one of the zuchinis for a carrot and some kale for more variety. Very good.
