Paleo Curry Chicken


I’ve been playing around with this recipe for about 2 months and I really think I nailed it this time.  It turned out just perfect!

This dish is very easy to make and  requires little to no kitchen skills. If you know how to chop vegetables, stir and throw everything in a casserole dish, you’ve landed on the right recipe.

Because I used coconut oil and coconut milk in this recipe I thought it would be appropriate to throw in a little fact and fiction about coconuts and its oils.

Coconuts and their oils are SUPERFOODS.

The greatest misconception of all time is that because coconut contains saturated fat, is bad for you.   People fear saturated fat and think they should avoid it like the plague.  I don’t think we should “overdo” saturated fat but I think we should avoid trans fats before saturated fats.

We need fat.  We can’t exist without it.  It’s used as energy. Coconut oils has been shown to be immune-enhancing,  it also has antiviral and antimicrobial effects and is a good source of omega 3.   There are a lot of reasons why we need fat, good sources of fat.
