Chicken Curry Stew

Coconut Chicken Curry Stew

Chicken Curry Stew is a robust, flavorful paleo stew – yummy and nutritious. A little spicy, but not too much. Just a classic favorite that our whole family loves.

I’ve always really, really loved Tom Kha Gai, that wonderful Thai chicken coconut soup. This robust stew is reminiscent of it, but much chunkier and loaded with vegetables and chicken. It’s also super easy, freezes well, and is even paleo. I can live off this type of stew. Plus I usually have most of the ingredients around – no need to go shopping for it. I always have carrots and onions and usually have bell peppers, but I also have frozen bell peppers.

You can also vary the vegetables in it – maybe with broccoli, mushrooms, tomatoes, asparagus. In this version, I used lots of bell peppers and carrots. Hope you enjoy it!
