Keto Paleo Cashew Chicken Curry

Feed the family with kid-approved Keto Paleo Cashew Chicken Curry!

I made this dish when I was visiting my friend’s house. She has 2 adorable little girls, 4 and 7, who are like nieces to me. My friend always wants me to cook for her, but the girls are very picky eaters and they are not used to eating complicated “adult” dishes. With this curry I wanted to create something that would be interesting for the adults, but simple enough for a kid’s palate. All of that using keto paleo ingredients.

The result was a spur-of-the-moment FB live video (see above0 and this recipe)

I did not get to film the girls eating the curry, but THEY DID!! I served the curry on a bed of simple cauli rice and it all disappeared fast.

After a few failed attempts at making something they liked, I was very pleased when they cleaned up the plate and even asked for more!

    This looks great and so easy. Thanks for sharing! I would like to know which green curry paste you use, but I’m not seeing that there is a link. Could you let me know? Thank you!

    Okay, I’m confused. I’ve been researching keto diets and I read that peanuts and cashews are big NOs yet you have a cashew chicken recipe. Is there a difference between a ketogenic diet and your “keto paleo” diet? Thanks for clearing this up for me.

      Hi Hannah,
      cashews are not a NO food on Keto, you just have to keep the carb count low, compared to fat and protein, so it is more about ratios of the nutrients contained in this case. Cashews are not the lowest carb nut, they are one of the highest, so we want to use them in moderation and keep an eye on the macros.
