Coconut Chicken Curry

In need of a one pot gluten free/dairy free dinner recipe that also works great for meal prep for lunches throughout the week?  Wanting to throw everything in a crockpot and call it a day?  This recipe is your answer!  In addition, pungent spices and herbs make this dish extremely anti-inflammatory and great for fighting off colds and any winter sickness that seems to be hanging on.  Sub cauliflower rice for the rice/quinoa blend and this dish is Whole 30 and Ketogenic diet friendly as well!


What you need:

  • 2 large raw organic chicken breasts
  • 3/4 cup canned lite coconut milk
  • 2-3 T minced garlic
  • 1 T fresh grated ginger root
  • 1 T curry powder
  • 1/2 T turmeric
  • 1/2 T paprika
  • 1 tsp salt (add more to taste)
  • pinch of cayenne
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 1 organic green bell pepper
  • 1 large organic carrot (peeled)
  • 1 medium organic zucchini
  • 1 head of organic broccoli
  • Generous handful of snow peas or green beans
  • 1 cup organic brown rice or quinoa (I like a mix of both)
  • chopped fresh cilantro-to garnish

How you do it:

  1. Chop raw chicken into bite sized pieces and layer into the bottom of a large crockpot
  2. Mix in a bowl: coconut milk and all spices; pour over chicken and then add chicken broth; stir to combine
  3. Dice onion and chop pepper, carrot, zucchini and broccoli into bite-sized pieces
  4. Add onion ONLY to crockpot with the chicken/sauce mixture
  5. Cover crockpot and set on high for ~1 hour
  6. Add all other veggies, stir and turn down to low; let cook another 2-3 hours (can keep on high for shorter cooking time instead)
  7. While crockpot is working away, rinse and drain the rice/quinoa and cook per instructions on bag
  8. Serve curry over rice and top with fresh cilantro; serve immediately

GFG Enjoy! Signature
