    This is a really easy meal to prepare and it is so tasty, does it matter if you add extra spices? because I thought turmeric would be lovely.

    We thought this dish was amazing! Don’t know how anyone could think it bland. I followed the directions, used fresh pressed garlic, and then we each added salt to taste for our individual plate. Cooked for 4 people so had leftovers which were even better the following day.
    I did run into some time consuming snags. The meat took longer to clean up and dice than say breast meat would have. Will still use thighs ... but will factor in additional time. Meat and veg took longer to cook ... but who cares, really? They tasted great when done. Will adjust my plans.
    Gonna make a general comment to the chef .... Thank you for all the great tasting keto food recipes! I am having such fun disxovering a new way to cook! I’m someone who has survived many HCGDiet experiences and so REALLY appreciate your hard work and heart for the LCHF way of life.

    I'm pretty new to Keto, but well versed in cooking all sorts of food. This did look like it needed a bit of kick, so I added dried chilli peppers (a whole one and with all the seeds, too!) and a tablespoon of red thai curry paste to the coconut milk. Also, the strength of your curry powder makes a huge difference - I used madras. Apart from the lingering (but delicious) smell of curry for a couple of days, I'd be glad to eat this 7 days a week. It is super-delicious. And today I discovered a Diet Doctor recipe for garlic naan - guess what's on the menu for next week? Love your recipes DD!

    I just made the updated recipe for the first time and it’s delicious, I am not a coconut fan but tried it with coconut milk anyway and it was not too overpowering I did add some fresh red chilli because I like spicy food
