Chicken Curry Nutrition Info:
Chicken: is a great lean protein source which is important for preserving lean muscle mass! Chicken breasts are lower in fat than chicken with skin. It’s also a source of selenium, phosphorus, vitamin B6 and niacin!
Cashews: Cashews are full of heart healthy fats, a plant-based protein and high in fiber. They contain an array of micronutrients including copper, manganese, magnesium and phosphorus.
Coconut Milk: is a source of medium-chain fatty acids and still considered a saturated fat. I prefer to use light coconut milk for less calories/fat and same great flavor.
Mixed Veggies: fill up on fiber and micronutrients! You can use any veggie in curry! This is a great way to get in some extra vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Butter Lettuce: is by far the best lettuce for lettuce wraps. It’s slightly sweet and holds together well. Butter lettuce is mainly water but does have calcium, magnesium and potassium!
