This Thai chicken curry is ready in 25 minutes and made in one skillet. I wanted something that could fit a lower carb diet, now if you want rice opt-in for cauliflower rice. You can make your own cauliflower rice, or you can find some in the freezer section and sometimes fridge section at your grocery store.
