Whole30 Thai Chicken Curry Recipe


  • 2lb Boneless Skinless Chicken (cut into bite-size pieces)
  • 2 Large Bell Peppers (thinly sliced)
  • 1 Medium Onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1 head Broccoli (cut into bite-size pieces)
  • 1-2 cup Snow Peas (trimmed)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Ginger (minced)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Garlic (minced)
  • 3 Small Carrots (peeled and shredded)
  • 3 tablespoons Cilantro (freshly minced + more for garnish)
  • Juice from 1 large Lime
  • 1 can Coconut Milk
  • 1 heaped tablespoon Red Curry Paste
  • 2-2 1/2 cups Chicken Broth
  • Coconut Oil (about 2 1/2 Tbs total)
  • Salt & Pepper (to taste)


Step 1
This is a meal that comes together fairly quickly... after chopping a million things. I always start this recipe by prepping all of the veggies first.
Step 2
Get everybody washed, chopped, and ready to go.
Step 3
Always prep all of your veggies first, and then dirty up your cutting board with the raw chicken. Cut it into bite-sized pieces and season with salt and pepper.
Step 4
Now that everything is good to go, heat 1 tablespoon of the coconut oil in a large skillet/wok/dutch oven on medium high heat.
Step 5
Brown the chicken pieces in two or three shifts and remove from pan. You may need to add a little extra coconut oil in between shifts.
Step 6
Once all of the chicken has been browned and removed from the pan add another tablespoon of coconut oil.
Step 7
Add the onions, peppers, garlic, ginger, and carrots. Stir and cook around 5 minutes.
Step 8
Add the broccoli, chicken, coconut milk, broth, and curry paste, and stir until everything (especially that clump of paste) is thoroughly incorporated.
Step 9
The amount of curry paste that you add here should be based on personal preference. Keep in mind that this is spicy and there's no taking it back once it's in there. Here's the heaping tablespoon that I used.
Step 10
Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Then reduce the heat to medium low and simmer around 15 minutes.
Step 11
Squeeze in the lime juice and add the snow peas. Simmer another 5 minutes.
Step 12
Stir in cilantro, and pull your yummy curry off the heat.
Step 13
Serve with lime wedges, extra cilantro, cauliflower rice, and a clear conscience!
