  • 1 1/2 lb chicken thighs
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil – divided
  • 2 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp ground tumeric
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 4 cloves garlic – minced
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh ginger – minced
  • 1 onion – sliced
  • 1 large sweet potato – cubed
  • 2 bell peppers – sliced
  • 2 heads broccoli
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 cup crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup cilantro – chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Step 1: Heat a pan over medium-low heat and add 1 tbsp of coconut oil. Once oil is heated, add in curry powder, turmeric, ginger, garam masala, and garlic and stir. This allows the spices to become fragrant. Ensure the garlic does not burn – about 30s

Step 2: Add the rest of the coconut oil, chicken, salt and pepper into the pan and mix with the spices until chicken is browned. About 5-7 minutes then set chicken aside on a plate

Step 3: Add onion, sweet potato and 1/4 cup of water to the pan and mix together so all the spices are lifted from the pan. Cover to cook for 3-5 minutes. Uncover and stir a couple times until the sweet potato becomes tender. 

Step 4: Add broccoli and peppers, mix and cover to cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir occasionally

Step 5: Add coconut milk, crushed tomatoes, chicken and bring to a boil. 

Step 6: Once boiling bring down to a simmer for about 5-10 minutes, until vegetables are cooked to your preference and the desired thickness is achieved. Add cilantro and mix until fully combined with the curry! Taste and add more salt and pepper if desired

Step 7: Serve on top of rice or cauliflower rice and dig in!
