The Ingredients You Will Need to Make the Coconut Curry Chicken
Before getting started, you will need to make sure you have the proper ingredients to make the Coconut Curry Chicken. The ingredients needed include:
- Chicken Breast. Use boneless, skinless chicken breast. Try these make-ahead chicken recipes.
- Garlic Powder. Add garlic powder to your chicken to enhance its flavor.
- Curry Powder. Create the perfect Indian-inspired flavor using curry powder.
- Fire-Roasted Diced Tomatoes. Use fire-roasted diced tomatoes for a bit of a kick.
- Lime. Use both the zest and juice of a lime to add a tang to your Coconut Curry Chicken.
You will need a few other ingredients, including ground turmeric, white pepper, salt, coconut oil, tomato paste, coconut milk, and unsweetened coconut. You can also use cilantro to garnish your chicken after you prepare it.
Can I Use Chicken Thighs as a Substitute?
While the recipe calls for chicken breast chopped into pieces, you can use chicken thighs as a substitute. Chicken thighs tend to offer a bit more flavor because of the dark meat attached to them. However, chicken breast chunks are a bit leaner, so that is something to consider when preparing this easy meal.
What Should I Serve on the Side of the Low Carb Coconut Curry Chicken?
While the Coconut Curry Chicken often gets served with a side of rice, you will want to keep this meal low-carb by serving it with a side of cauliflower rice. You can prepare the cauliflower rice from scratch or buy frozen cauliflower rice to prepare as with this meal.
Should I Use Unsweetened Coconut Milk?
When trying to keep the dish low carb, it is better to use unsweetened coconut milk. The brand of coconut milk used for this recipe is not important. You can use any brand you can find. I often see it at discount grocery stores at a great price.
What Can I Serve with the Low Carb Coconut Curry Chicken to Keep it Low Carb?
You can serve your Low Carb Coconut Curry Chicken on a plate or bowl with a fresh salad. You can also make Low-carb Cauliflower Au Gratin with Bacon or Low-Carb Cheesy Asparagus as a side dish to add to the meal.
There are also a lot of low-carb desserts you can add to this THM meal. Try Keto Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies for a cookie fix. My Low Carb Pumpkin Cheesecake is delicious for the fall. This Low-Carb Peanut Butter Cheesecake is great for all you peanut butter lovers, yum! Love mint? These Keto Thin Mints taste amazing if you love mint. Regular, unflavored Ultimate Low Carb Cheesecake is amazing and you can top it with strawberries or other fruit. Finally, these Low Carb Snickerdoodles are great for little hands and easy on a mama’s diet.

Do you want to make a unique low-carb meal that will taste good? If so, you need to try this wholesome, easy-to-make Large Family Instant Pot Low Carb Coconut Curry Chicken.
- 2 tablespoon coconut oil
- 4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
- 2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 3 tablespoons curry powder
- 2 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon white pepper
- 2 onion, diced
- 1/2 cup water (if needed to deglaze)
- 2 (15 ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
- 2 tablespoon tomato paste
- 2 lime, zest, and juice
- 2 (13.5 ounce) can coconut milk
- Unsweetened flaked coconut, to garnish
- Chopped fresh cilantro, to garnish
Heat the electric pressure cooker using the “saute” function until “hot.”
Meanwhile, place the chicken into a zip-top storage bag. Add the seasonings and seal the bag. Shake and mash to cover the chicken in the seasonings.
Add the coconut oil to the pressure cooker and then add the chicken and the onion. Brown the chicken on all sides.
If the bottom of the instant pot collects frond (baked on bits,) deglaze the bottom of the pot by adding a tiny amount of water or chicken stock and scraping with a wooden spoon.
Place all the ingredients for the sauce EXCEPT the coconut milk over the chicken. Do not stir.
Cover the electric pressure cooker and set the valve to “sealing.”
Program the electric pressure cooker using the “pressure cook” or “manual” function for 7 minutes. When the cook cycle is completed, quick release the pressure.
Once the pressure has released, remove the chicken but keep warm. Add the coconut milk to the sauce and switch the electric pressure cooker back to “saute” mode. Cook the sauce approximately 10 minutes, stirring often, until the sauce has thickened. Return the chicken to the pot and stir to coat.
Serve alone or over cauliflower rice.
