What is Needed to Make Keto Chicken Curry?
As a busy business owner, wife, and mother I love when delicious recipes can come together without a lot of hassle and required supplies. This keto chicken curry is one of those recipes.
In addition to the ingredients (listed below), you need very little to put this delicious meal together.
Here is what is needed to make this keto curry:
How to Make Keto Curry Chicken
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then add all ingredients for the Cajun chicken to a mixing bowl and mix well.
Toss the chicken in the mixture to coat in the spice well.
Place the chicken on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes until cooked thoroughly.
Can You Eat Curry on Keto?
The easy answer to whether or not you can eat curry on keto, is yes, you can. That being said, many times when you buy store bought products you’ll find that there are hidden carbs and unhealthy ingredients so homemade is always a good choice.
Additionally, what you eat with your curry is a huge factor in whether or not it is a low carb friendly meal. Many people eat curry with rice or other high carb, starchy foods. Avoid that temptation!
Is Curry High in Carbs?
As I mentioned above, as long as you make your curry homemade you will know that there are no hidden sugars or high carbohydrate ingredients that will sabotage your keto diet. This recipe for keto curry has just 1 net carb per serving.
This recipe makes 6 servings.
What Can I Replace Rice With on Keto for Curry?
If you are used to eating rice with your curry, this is a change that you need to make, but that’s okay! There are some really great substitutions for rice that won’t affect your blood sugar. Here are some of my favorite low carb options for serving with curry:
Cauliflower rice is a great option because it is mild and does a great job of absorbing the flavors of the curry, plus, if you cook it correctly, you’ll find that it is a very similar texture to that of regular rice.
Is there anything main dish that roasted veggies don’t pair well with? These are always a great choice for low carb dieters.
A great mix of vegetables to roast to serve with your curry includes cauliflower, broccoli, zucchini. Toss these veggies in oil, top with some sea salt (and cayenne pepper if you like a bit of spice) and roast for 15-20 minutes at 425 degrees.
You can toss the veggies into your curry dish or you can serve them alongside your curry dish. You choose!
Zucchini noodles are a great side dish for curry. They are mild in flavor so they will pair well with the curry without overpowering it.
Is Keto Curry Chicken Good for Weeknight Dinners?
This keto curry is great for busy weeknight dinners because it is very easy to make and it’s finished quickly. Additionally, though, this keto chicken curry is very easy to make in advance and store for meal prep.
You can easily double up on the recipe to make one recipe and save the other for dinner later in the week. If you don’t think you’ll be making it in the next 3 days or so, feel free to store it in the freezer for up to 3 months.
How Long Does it Take to Make This Keto Chicken Curry?
This keto curry takes just 10 minutes to prep and just 25 to 30 minutes to cook. That’s right, at most you are looking at 40 minutes from start to finish. Yet another reason why this is such a great recipe for those busy weeknights.
