Easy KETO Butter Chicken


  • 1 lb of chicken breasts (4 large)
  • 1 cup, unsweetened Greek Yogurt or Coconut Milk
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 large Onion
  • 1 tbsp of Garam Masala
  • 1.5 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp Pink Salt
  • 3/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • A squeeze of lemon juice


  1. Cut the chicken up into bite-sized chunks and generously coat them in the turmeric, ginger, salt, and chili powder. Set aside in a bowl.
  2. Heat a skillet to medium heat and add the butter. As the butter melts dice the onion and garlic and add it to the pan. Cook for 5-10 minutes until the onion is caramelized and becomes a golden brown color.
  3. Increase the pan heat to medium-high and add the chicken. Seal it by cooking on medium for 5- 8 minutes stirring continuously  – the outside of the chicken pieces should be white.
  4. Once the chicken looks almost fully cooked add in the yogurt and tomato paste. Using a spatula mix in the tomato paste so it runs smooth through the yogurt. It should be a light brown/orange color at this point, add the mixture to the chicken and onions. Turn the heat to low, add in the chopped cilantro, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and cook for 35-45 minutes.
  5. Serve with cauliflower rice. Enjoy!
