Keto chicken curry is delicious and nutritious low carb chicken in keto curry sauce. Chicken with curry sauce is easy family friendly meal.

Keto chicken curry is one of my favorite keto curry recipes. I live in Europe, precisely in Croatia and I discovered a real and delicious curry recipes when I started to work for one international company and my boss was Indian lady who was a real expert in the kitchen. So I’ve got my first curry cooking lessons from her!

During all these years of working in international company, I am grateful for having a chance to travel the world. I was eating curry in the best Indian restaurants all over the world and wherever I travel and see good curry spice mixtures I buy for myself, friends and family!

I transferred my love for curry to my husband so now he is always happy when I cook curry. Especially keto curry recipes! I have a delicious keto chicken curry soup on my blog, as well as delicious low carb pork curry with coconut.

Chicken meat could be boring if you’re eating always just fried chicken in the oven. However, just a tiny amount of curry can transform chicken meat into a delicious curry experience!

I also have other delicious chicken recipes you might try!

My keto chicken curry recipe is really delicious and, as majority of my recipes, it is really easy and fast to prepare! This is one of my family friendly keto recipes you can prepare in less than 30 minutes!

For working mom on keto this is fantastic because I can easily prepare it fresh after work. Also, this keto chicken with curry sauce is fantastic even when reheated. You can even freeze this keto chicken in curry sauce and keep it it in the freezer for few weeks and take it out as keto emergency meal!

CHOPPED ONION – I always start with frying onion on a hot coconut oil. If you’re using spring onion you will need just a minute to do it. Be careful to avoid burning your onion.

CHICKEN MEAT – for this curry it’s the best to use chicken breasts or thighs cut in small bite size cubes.

CURRY SPICES – I use mild curry powder because of my children, you can use spicy if you like it hot. Also, I add ground paprika, garam masala and turmeric. This is combination of spices I like best for my curry. However, I really love spicy food, so I sprinkle my portion with crushed chili to make it hot!

Serving keto chicken with curry sauce

I love this chicken with curry sauce poured over a nice fried cauliflower rice. I am on keto and if you’re on keto, fried cauliflower rice is great side dish for this keto chicken curry. Here you can find recipe for fried cauliflower rice.

You can definitely serve it also with cauliflower mash or with cauliflower gnocchi.

I love garnish everything with some chopped spring onion or fresh cilantro leaves. Also a slice of fresh lemon or lime goes fantastically.

When it comes to serving the dish, for me everything tastes better with a pinch of crushed chili. I love spicy food so I to love add some chilies on top. Looks and tastes wonderful!
