Paleo Thai Coconut Curry. (Gluten/ Grain/ Dairy/ Egg Free)

Have I ever mentioned how much I love thai food? I think I like it just as much as Chinese food. You cant go wrong using ingredients like basil, ginger and garlic. In this recipe I combine curry; a creamy, spicy sauce with the sweetness of sweet potatoes!  Seriously a treat!

 I have you use two pans so that while the sweet potatoes are cooking you can get the rest of the ingredients going. This makes for a quick and easy weeknight meal. You might even have your family believing you slaved over a hot stove all night! That might even convince someone to take care of those dishes for you!!

PS. I use a Padern0 Spiralizer to make my sweet potato noodles, and use the smallest blade!

  • 3-4 Chicken Thighs, chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1 Small Onion, sliced
  • 1 Red Pepper, chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste

  • 1 TBSP Coconut Oil
  • 2-3 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp Ginger, fresh, and grated

  • 1 TBSP Curry Powder
  • 1 Can Coconut Cream (or Heavy Cream)
  • 1/2 tsp Starch (Tapioca, Potato or Arrowroot)
  • 3 Sweet Potatoes, Spiralized
  • 1 tsp Lime juice
  • Cashews (Optional)


  1. Being by making the sauce, mince garlic, peel and chop ginger.
  2. Heat up 1 TBSP of coconut oil over medium-low heat, and add in garlic, ginger, salt and curry powder; Cook for 30 seconds.
  3. Mix in Coconut cream or cream of choice. Bring to a simmer and add in starch; let sauce thicken slightly.
  4. While sauce simmers, spiralize sweet potato, and then add to the sauce.
  5. As the the sweet potato cooks, heat a separate pan with 1 TBSP of coconut oil over medium heat.
  6. Cut chicken thighs into bite size pieces and season with salt and pepper.
  7. Add chicken to heated pan; cook until almost cooked through.
  8. Add in onion; cook for 2 minutes.
  9. Add in Pepper and for another 2 minutes.
  10. Pour chicken mixture into the pan with the sauce and mix with lime juice!


I haven't tried it but if you decide to use Lite Coconut Milk, you want to add about an extra tsp of starch to thicken the sauce.

    How do you ‘spiralize’ a sweet potato?

      MJ, it takes a device called a Spiralizer. Google that. I LOVE mine, and have a lot of fun with it. If you have a hand-held julienne tool, you can use that to make the longest pieces you can or use a vegetable peeler to make strips, but the Spiralizer is much easier, and more fun.
