  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 2 pounds Chicken Breasts boneless, skinless, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Curry Powder
  • 1 tsp Ground Turmeric
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp White Pepper
  • 1 Onion diced
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 15 ounces Fire-Roasted Tomatoes 1 can
  • 1 tbsp Tomato Paste
  • 1 Lime Zest and Juice
  • 13.5 ounces Coconut Milk 1 can
  • 3 tbsp Unsweetened Coconut Flakes for garnish


  1. Heat the electric pressure cooker using the “saute” function until “hot.”

  2. Meanwhile, place the chicken into a zip-top storage bag. Add the seasonings and seal the bag. Shake and mash to cover the chicken in the seasonings.

  3. Add the coconut oil to the pressure cooker and then add the chicken and the onion. Brown the chicken on all sides.

  4. If the bottom of the instant pot collects frond (baked on bits,) deglaze the bottom of the pot by adding a tiny amount of water or chicken stock and scraping with a wooden spoon.

  5. Place all the ingredients for the sauce EXCEPT the coconut milk over the chicken. Do not stir.

  6. Cover the electric pressure cooker and set the valve to “sealing.”

  7. Program the electric pressure cooker using the “pressure cook” or “manual” function for 7 minutes. When the cook cycle is completed, quick release the pressure.

  8. Once the pressure has released, remove the chicken but keep warm. Add the coconut milk to the sauce and switch the electric pressure cooker back to “saute” mode. Cook the sauce approximately 10 minutes, stirring often, until the sauce has thickened. Return the chicken to the pot and stir to coat.

  9. Serve alone or over cauliflower rice.
