Yellow Curry Chicken Recipe with Coconut Milk

Since Hubs adopted a gluten-free, dairy-free diet nearly two years ago, I’ve made this Yellow Chicken Curry Recipe on a weekly basis. It’s filling, quick, and easy to make and can easily be adapted to Paleo and Whole 30 meal plans by leaving out the rice.

Thai Chicken Yellow Curry Recipe

1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
3 cloves garlic, minced
1-2 Tbsp (to taste) curry powder

3 Tbsp chopped jalapenos (optional if you like some spice)
Zest and juice of 1 lime
¼ – ½ cup (to taste) fresh cilantro, chopped

Directions
Coat a large skillet with coconut oil and heat over medium heat.
Add the chicken and cook until golden brown on all sides, stirring frequently.
Add garlic and cook until slightly brown
Add the curry powder and cook until fragrant, stirring constantly.
Add the coconut milk, jalapenos, and Young Living Lime Vitality Essential Oil
Simmer until the chicken is just cooked through, about 5 minutes.

This Thai Chicken Curry makes gluten free dinner that you'll want to serve over and over again. Leave out the rice and it makes a paleo recipe.
