Keto-Friendly Coconut Curry Chicken

Serve up this ket0-friendly Coconut Curry Chicken, that is super fast to heat up, light, and will curb your appetite. Just a few ingredients are all you need for this savory curry chicken recipe.

We got 12 inches of snow in under 4 hours earlier this week.

I’m COLD, Y’all.

Which is pretty funny to me because earlier this month, I went to the store sans jacket, but it was nearly 50 degrees outside (Ish says I’m acclimating to Michigan).

I’m not sure I agree with him (maybe it’s just that I don’t want to acclimate to sub-zero temps for 8 months of the year…), at least not completely.

Winter still leaves me longing for warmer temperatures…although I do love my sweaters and toasty slippers. A lot. I love them a lot.

But I digress.

This week has been especially cold, given the slight warm-up we experienced, which has me craving soups, stews…and curry.

I love curry on a cold day. There’s just something about it that feels like it’s warming me up from the inside out (maybe because it is?).

Coconut Curry Chicken

This week, I went for a coconut curry chicken, which has been a long-time favorite in my house, so naturally, I have all of the ingredients on hand which makes this dish come together in a snap.
