A Whole30 curry that’s made for the masses
Well, I shouldn’t say I have never made curry. It has however taken me this long to hold off from eating it at all, in order to take pictures of it. There we go. Now, I’ve got my facts straight.
It also took me a bit of time to figure out how to make a completely Whole3o compliant. It’s not that this recipe is difficult to make.
I just wasn’t well versed with Whole30 recipe creation until about a year ago.

This Whole30 chicken curry is loaded up with all of the veggies!
I’m a huge veggie advocate, especially in soups, stews and curries. They bring different flavors (obviously) and textures to the equation outside of your protein source.
This 10 minute Whole30 curry has all the nutrient dense ingredients in it… did you check out the list? I’ll give you a sneak preview, just keep scrollin’ along ????
So I went with it, and that’s fine because green is my favorite color. Yeah, I’m such a kid.
When you make this Whole30 curry, you’re going to want to make it again & again
I remember making curry for the first time with a curry paste instead of a bunch of powder. It was so exciting.
I felt like I had discovered something brand new (which I had… at least, for me personally.)
What’s so awesome about this recipe (well, one of the things), is that you can get as creative with your vegetables add-ins as you’d like.
I decided to add in some butternut squash, green beans, cauliflower florets, as well as some cauliflower rice to serve with the curry.
Snuck some cauliflower rice into this paleo curry recipe…
This 10 minute Whole30 curry will keep in the refrigerator for up to one week. If you’re not in the business of Whole30’ing, can alternatively serve this on steamed brown or white rice, if that’s your style.
I am sure there is a reason they always serve it with curry at restaurants. So. dang. good. That’s why.
But eating this curry with cauliflower rice is just as delicious, in my opinion. Just wait and see…!
This Whole30 chicken curry is the bee’s knees. After you make it once, I know it will become a frequent go to in your home!
It’s seriously time to dig in.
Oh, your kitchen is going to smell like curry for a few days. Breathe in, breathe out and embrace it ????
Whole30 Chicken Curry
- 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs rinsed, patted dry & cut into cubes
- 1 1/2 tablespoons ghee
- 1/4 cup bone broth- Find Here!
- 1 large yellow onion diced
- 4 tablespoons green curry paste
- 40 ounces canned coconut milk (this is about 3 cans)
- 1 head cauliflower cut into florets
- 2 cups green beans trimmed
- 1 small butternut squash diced
- 2 teaspoons turmeric
- 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes to taste (careful!)
- sea salt and black pepper to taste
- cooked cauliflower rice for serving
- fresh cilantro for serving
- spiced cashew pieces for serving
- Heat a high-rimmed sauté pan with 1 tablespoon of ghee. While it is heating up, season your chicken thigh cubes with salt and pepper.
- Pan fry the chicken until lightly brown on all sides. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chunks into a bowl and set aside. Discard the excess fat and juice from the pan.
- Add in bone broth and let onions cook until they look translucent (about 4-5 minutes).
- Throw the chicken back into the pan and add green curry paste. Stir until well combined, and pour in the canned coconut milk. Let it just come to a boil and turn it on medium-low heat.
- Add in all of the vegetables and other spices. Once the vegetables have cooked through (check if they are fork tender), lower the heat to a simmer and stir in turmeric.
- Add sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste.
- Let the curry simmer for 15-20 minutes, and mix in or top off with some fresh cilantro. Serve with cauliflower rice and top off with spiced cashews.
You can play around with the spice amounts once your curry begins to simmer. I prefer my curries with a kick, so I added a good amount more of red chili flakes and pepper, as well as turmeric.
