Chicken breast. One of the quintessential bodybuilder foods, but also one of the most boring. This lean protein is easy to incorporate into a nutrition protocol, but can get bland quickly. It is inexpensive, and an easy protein to work with. This recipe for chicken curry is a great way to add some flavor, spice, and everything nice.

This meal only gets better the next day as a leftover lunch!

1 TBS Grassfed Butter

1 TBS Olive or Coconut oil

1 medium onion diced

3 cloves minced garlic

I – 6 ounce can of Tomato paste

1.5 TBS curry powder

2 tsp cumin

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp ginger

1 tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

1 cup Greek yogurt

Quick cucumber raita:

1 English Cucumber, seeded and chopped

½ cup Greek yogurt

Juice from ½ of a lemon

½ tsp cumin

Salt to taste

Rice or gluten free naan for serving

Optional garnish- mint


  1. Heat butter and oil in a large skillet or a medium saucepan on medium heat. Once it is melted add in the onion and saute for 2-3 minutes, or until softened. Add in the garlic being careful not to burn it. Approximately 1 more minute.
  2. Add in the cubed chicken, tomato paste, and spices cooking until chicken is done, stirring occasionally. Cover with a lid and let simmer on medium-low until chicken is cooked through. About 8-10 minutes.
  3. Once the chicken is cooked all the way through, stir in the yogurt and let simmer for an additional 5 minutes.

While the butter chicken is finishing up, get started on the cucumber raita.

  1. All you need to do is chop and seed your cucumber, then mix with the lemon juice, cumin, salt, and Greek yogurt.

Serve the chicken over rice, and top with the cucumber raita!
