Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Pat dry the chicken with a paper towel, then cut it into roughly 1-inch pieces. Season with the salt and pepper.
Add two-thirds of the coconut oil to the hot pan. Once it’s melted, add the chicken pieces and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Transfer the cooked chicken to a plate.
Reduce the heat under the skillet to medium, add the remaining coconut oil and the onion and cook until the onions have softened and are just starting to get golden, about 3 minutes. Add the zucchini, green beans, bell pepper a very generous pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to brown slightly on the edges, but are still crisp tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the ginger and garlic powder and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Meanwhile, place the cauliflower rice in a glass bowl with a lid or on a plate covered with plastic wrap. Microwave for 4 minutes on full power, stopping once halfway through to stir. Let the rice sit for a couple of minutes to cool, then season to taste with salt and pepper.
Return the cooked chicken and any collected juices to the pan. Add the Thai curry paste, coconut cream, and heavy cream, and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has reduced and thickened, about 5 minutes.
Stir in the butter, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with cauliflower rice, and garnish with chopped cilantro.

Made this tonight and it was delicious. Will definitely make this again. Thank you for posting the recipe xx
Our pleasure. Proves that keto doesn’t mean giving up flavor 😉
Just made this dish and it was amazing. Not a difficult recipe at all.
Love this recipe! I used chicken thighs instead of breast because that’s what I had on hand. I also used fresh garlic instead of powder. I’d increase the paste, ginger and garlic next time for a bit more kick. My husband loved it which is a bonus. Very filling and satisfying!
I made it tonight and we love it . I didn’t have cilantro but I don’t think it was bad at all . My husband love it . This is going to be one of my favorite Thai chicken .
I’ve made this recipe twice and really like it a lot. I used Thai green curry paste instead of the red, which got wimpy reviews (for the Thai Kitchen brand). The green isn’t too hot at all. I skipped the cilantro, because I have the “it tastes soapy gene.”
It’s a simple, tasty one-pan recipe.
Really enjoyed this recipe! I would modify a few things: 1. Chop all veggies and meat prior to starting recipe. 2. Needed to put chicken on med-hi to brown. 3. Add zucchini later with returned chicken. 4. Added 2T Swerve brown sugar and 5. Add more curry paste for a little more flavor and slight ‘kick’. Easy tweaks and we have 2 meals from this recipe.
Overall I liked this recipe. Nice amount of vegetables (although I added extra of all the vegetables), protein, and fat. I am not a great cook, but I found this recipe easy to follow and my family really liked the meal. However, it’s not spicy at all! I was really disappointed by the lack of heat, but gave this recipe 5 stars anyway because spice is subjective. It was still good, but next time I will definitely be adding a jalapeño. This recipe took me about a half hour to prep and about a half hour to cook. I personally found the length of time worth it for a filling, healthy meal that my whole family enjoyed.
So delicious and satisfying. Better than most Thai restaurants and a lot healthier too. This will definitely become one of my go-to recipes.
