Cashew Curry Chicken Kebabs (from the grill)

Martha Stewart and Keto; who would have thought those two could ever be a combination? I didn’t… but then these lovely chicken kebabs popped up in my news feed and I decided to find the recipe and tweak it so that it was keto approved. Believe it or not…. I didn’t have to tweak one thing! The only thing I changed was using green instead of red curry paste because the supermarket was out of red.

These are so easy to make and when I served them to my family I could hear them mumbling; “OMG” and “These are so good” in between bites. Sounds like a winner to me!

EDIT: These work best on the grill. I have tried them in a skillet but you just don’t get the same yummy results then, as you would get on the grill.


  • 8 wooden skewers, soaked in water for at least 15 minutes to prevent burning on the grill
  • 1 1/4 lb boneless chicken thighs cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces. (make sure you weigh them after taking off the fat and other parts you won’t eat. I used 8 thighs in total to get the amount I needed for 8 skewers)
  • 3/4 cup unsalted (roasted) cashews
  • 2 tablespoons green curry (but you can easily substitute this for red curry if you like more heat)


  1. Preheat your charcoal grill and lightly spray it with cooking spray. If you don’t have a charcoal grill, you can also use an electric griddle.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the cashews and the curry paste with a little over 1/3 cup water until smooth. (The original recipe was double the amount we are making right now because this mixture was also used as a salad dressing. I cut it in half because the salad was not keto approved so that’s why the amount of water used is a bit of an odd amount).
  3. Put the cut up chicken thighs in a bowl and add the cashew mixture. Use your hands to mix it all together. Make sure the chicken is evenly coated.
  4. Thread the chicken onto the skewers and grill them 6 minutes each side. Done!

What I’ve learned…

  • When looking for keto cooking inspiration, don’t exclude sources you think don’t have any low carb recipes. Martha Stewart really surprised me with this super delicious recipe!
  • We don’t use enough curry in our daily cooking…I really love the taste of it.
