Coconut Cashew Chicken with Cauliflower Rice (Paleo)

So I absolutely loved this dish! I’m a huge fan of having nuts in dinner meals and I’m also a huge fan of cilantro. The cilantro you can put as little or as much as you want, so even if you aren’t a cilantro lover but like the curry flavor you’ll still enjoy the meal.

2 skinless chicken breasts cut into squares

2 T olive oil

1 medium onion chopped

1 medium tomato chopped

4 garlic cloves minced

1 inch piece of ginger root

1 t garam masala

1 t curry

8 ounces whole coconut milk

1/2 cup cashews*

2 handfuls of cilantro*

*Less if you aren’t a huge fan of either cashews or cilantro


1. Cook chicken in a small sauce pan

2. Meanwhile, in a different pan heat oil and add onion/tomato. Cook until onions are translucent.

3. Stir in ginger and garlic and cook for another minute.

4. Add garam masala and curry powder then simmer for 5 minutes.

5. Remove from heat and let cool, pour into blender and puree
until smooth.

6.Return mixture to skillet and add coconut milk. Simmer over low
heat, stirring constantly for 10 minutes.



1/2-1 head of cauliflower (depends on how much “rice” you want)


1. Cut from stem and place in food processor.

2. Pulse until rice like.

3. Place in microwave for about 3 minutes.

*Side note: If you haven’t tried cauliflower rice, try it! It tricks your brain into thinking your eating rice without the calories of actually eating it.
