One of the things I missed most when I started the autoimmune protocol was spicy, tomatoey ethnic food–whether it was salsa, jambalaya, or tikka masala, I was devastated to think I couldn’t eat those things anymore and might not be able to ever again if reintroducing those spices, tomatoes, and peppers didn’t go well. So, naturally, once I started developing recipes, coming up with AIP-friendly versions of these was my first order of business! And not to toot my own horn, but this Chicken Makhani delivers. It’s not only quick and easy to make, but 100% Paleo and autoimmune protocol-compliant. (Of course, those of you who don’t have to follow the AIP can use regular tomato sauce and heavy cream instead of coconut milk, if you like.) Plus, it’s really, really tasty. This’ll satisfy those curry cravings, guaranteed!
