Curried Chicken Bowl

Curried Chicken Bowl

Looking for a new and creative way to transform leftover roast or grilled chicken? With a few staples from your Candida Diet pantry, such as coconut milk, garlic, turmeric, ginger, and stevia, you can whip up this unique and flavorful curried chicken bowl in minutes.

The addition of fresh spinach and cooked quinoa makes this a balanced meal in a bowl. It contains lots of satisfying protein, a healthy dose of good fats, and plenty of energy-giving micronutrients. The recipe can be easily doubled or tripled for more servings.

Note that this recipe is designed as a quick, tasty way to use up your leftover turkey or chicken. Therefore, the prep time doesn’t include the time to cook the meat. If you want to make this meal from scratch, remember to allow enough time to cook the chicken or turkey.

Stevia is a natural, zero-calorie sweetener that can help you to satisfy sweet cravings without spiking your blood sugar. For this reason, it’s often used by diabetics. However, it has a slightly bitter aftertaste that not everyone enjoys. If you’re not a fan of stevia, try using monk fruit extract in this recipe instead. Enjoy!

    I omitted the coconut milk and stevia from the dressing. This bowl was delicious! I have used the dressing for other salads as well. This is my new go to dressing and salad.
