      That’s a fabulous idea Elaine! My ‘longer’ version of this actually uses bone-in thighs and you just have to do a 30-45 minute simmer rather than 15 :). Get some much flavor out of those thigh bones if you have the time! Hope you enjoy it! xo

    Thank you for Gnom-Gnom Paola! It’s such a delight to read and cook your recipes, you can tell how much you love food (am I right or am I right?!). Finally a keto blog for foodies!

    Made this just now and the whole fam was wowed! Easy, quick and very tasty! Will become a staple!

    OMGosh, this looks delicious! I noticed, though, that there is no curry in the recipe. Is that correct? Can’t wait to make this.

    • Paola says:

      Hi Roxana! You are essentially making a ‘speedy and abbreviated’ curry with the onion, garlic, ginger etc. There are obviously more complex curry versions (with more obscure ingredients, think bergamot), but this is a quick take with pantry ingredients. I’ve found that most store-bought curry pastes are not keto (loaded with sugars etc).

      If you’re looking for a more complete curry check out the butter chicken (though an Indian curry) xo!

    This is delicious! Made it for dinner tonight but substituted Miracle Noidles for the cauliflower rice. No matter that they call it rice โ€” still tastes like cauliflower!

    • Paola says:

      Awesome! So happy you loved it Patricia! And YUP, cauliflower is still cauliflower (but I actually like it here!). Great idea about the miracle noodles though- I also saw they now have an official ‘miracle rice’ too ๐Ÿ˜‰ xo!

    I made this last night and was so delicious. I actually added 2 more chicken breasts and some baby bok choy for my husband and adult son and myself. There was still more than enough broth to cover the additional chicken and sadly no leftovers Will definitely make again

      So happy you enjoyed Jeannette! And thanks so much for your detailed feedback, always super helpful to future readers! xo!

    Thanks so much for the effort you’ve put in to creating these amazing recipes! I’ve been trying to do the same and it’s never been this successful! This is now my go to site for my new keto way of living!! Your recipes and detail are absolutely amazing! So far, I’ve tried the butter chicken, the fried chicken (I used wings) and the bulletproof cocoa. I will be baking the new yeast bread recipe over the weekend.
    I am now in the process of making this curried chicken and am tracking my macros into a website that I’ve used for years (nutritiondata). I am plotting the recipe for 2 servings and my net carbs are coming in way way way above yours! I am using homemade coconut milk which may be different to yours but just onions and red peppers alone pack a whole lot of carbs because of their high sugar content so I’m not sure how yours is so low. I know you have the caveat of differences in brands resulting in differences in macros mine comes in at a whopping 11.6 net carbs per serving (I’m trying to stay under 20 per day). I also find your protein amount quite low per serving. Now, of course, I’m not sure about the weight of the chicken breast you used. That brings me to a wonderful point you made about the bread. Would you be able to share weights of the items you use rather than “one small onion” or “1 red pepper”?
    I look forward to hearing your response on this!

      Hi Maxine! So happy you’re enjoying! I’ll double check the nutrition info for this recipe, but given the ingredients in it I really don’t think it should be coming out at 11.6g. I have been known to make mistakes (ahem, we all do!). So I always suggest that readers do their own checks xo!

      Oh, and on the grams for savory recipes most readers complained A LOT when I was doing it so I just stopped. They still complain in the baking, but there you do get the best results.

      • Maxine says:

        I double checked mine but I guess it’s the use of fresh coconut milk. How does anyone ever know the composition though since people use different amounts of liquid to milk the coconut. Either way, I broke my recipe into 3 and enjoyed it thoroughly!!
        ๐Ÿ™‚ I get your point re people and grams! I think it’s necessary for consistency so I’m a stickler. I’m so sorry you stopped!
        I look forward to trying so many more of your recipes… and thanks again for this labour of love!!

    Gonna make this tomorrow….can’t wait! I I’ve been doing standard keto since September ’17 and I’m so glad to have found your blog, Paola–I love, love, LOVE it! It feels like I’ve stumbled on a diamond mine of keto-friendly recipe gems. I love to cook (though I’m nowhere near as talented as you) and I’m always trying to stretch within the parameters of a keto diet. This blog is proof that keto does NOT have to be boring; with a little ingenuity, anyone can produce delicious replications that are just as tasty as their carb-laden counterparts!

    • Paola says:

      Thank you so much for your lovely comment Nicole, awesome you’re enjoying the blog thus far! And definitely agree, no need to make grain free eating restrictive at all ๐Ÿ˜‰ xo!
