Keto Chicken Curry – Creamy Low Carb Chicken Curry

Keto Chicken Curry – Creamy Low Carb Chicken Curry – low carb recipes are the perfect low carb keto diet recipe. They are easy to make, perfect for a week night dinner and fun to make with your family or friends.

Preparing a low-carb, gluten-free, dairy-free, keto-friendly, paleo-friendly, and/or Whole 30 compliant chicken curry has always been my favorite way to eat low-carb, but it was a bit of a challenge to find the right spices and herbs to make the dish taste amazing without the flavors dominating the recipe. By the time I’d gotten through my fourth jar of curry paste, I decided I needed a better solution.

Serve over a bed of cauliflower rice with fresh coriander leaves as a garnish (if non-keto, serve over plain white rice or naan).



  • Use coconut cream instead of cream if you’re lactose intolerant.
  • I used chicken thighs, but you could also use chicken breasts (cooking time will vary).
  • Instead of using just heavy cream, consider using half cream and half coconut milk.



Instant Pot Keto Chicken Curry

Check out the card below for the standard pan version.

  • In a food processor, combine the garlic, onion, ginger, green chile, and fresh coriander.
  • Set the instant pot to sauté mode and add the ghee. Once the ghee is heated, add the chicken and cook for a few minutes, or until brown.
  • Sauté for a few minutes after adding the paste from the food processor.
  • Sauté for another 4-5 minutes after adding the tomato paste, cumin, turmeric, and powdered coriander. (If it starts to burn, add more water or coconut milk.)
  • Set the lid to sealing, push the manual setting, set the pressure to high, and set the timer to 5 minutes.
  • Allow 5 minutes for the pressure to naturally dissipate before opening.
  • Turn on the sauté mode, mix in the heavy cream/coconut cream, season with salt, and continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Transfer to a serving dish, top with fresh coriander leaves, and serve immediately!

This is the crockpot version; see the recipe card below for the cooktop pan version.

  • Combine all of the ingredients, including the tomato paste, in a large mixing bowl.
  • Place everything in your slow cooker and cook for 3-4 hours on high or 5-6 hours on low.
  • When it’s done, open it up and mix in the heavy cream/coconut cream, season with salt, and keep it heated for a few minutes.

Did you know that not all cumin is the same? If you’re used to the regular Indian grocery store stuff, you may find the taste of the cumin in this recipe is too strong. But it’s actually quite mellow. And, if you like it, you can make your own cumin from the jarred stuff by crushing the seeds and adding water. This is a low calorie curry recipe, but it is higher in fat than most other keto curries. Feel free to adjust the amount of coconut milk you use, as you wish. It’s a great way to use up extra veggies.. Read more about keto chicken curry slow cooker and let us know what you think.
