I prepare these Keto Curry Chicken Quarters on a regular basis. 

Before beginning and now during my Keto Low-Carb journey, I continue to LOVE all kinds of curries.  I don’t cook with this spice as often as I like.  Curry odor can stink up the house.  Shawn doesn’t mind the lingering scent of curry.  I despise it. I’m also super sensitive to smells, which is no doubt the reason why I loved being a wine journalist for many years.  My girlfriends call me a scent puppy and often use my smelling abilities to help them detect scents in the house like mold! If I walk into a house and say there is mold…well, there is always mold. 

Back to the curry.  I love this recipe because the fat is removed from the chicken.  No sauces or extra fats are added.  It’s just skinless legs with curry spice, salt, and pepper.  A healthy way to enjoy dark poultry. 

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO CURRY CHICKEN QUARTERS?

Curry powder is the main spice in these Keto Curry Chicken Quarters.  It is a mixture of spices with a bright golden color.  It is made with spices, such as turmeric, coriander, cumin, fenugreek, and sometimes chili powder.  Small producers can sometimes add ginger, mustard seeds, curry leaves, fennel seeds, and black pepper. Curry powder is a great addition to the Keto diet and low-carb lifestyle due to its impressive nutritional benefits. It is a blend of various spices including turmeric, cumin, coriander, and ginger.

These spices contain numerous nutrients that offer various health benefits. Turmeric, for instance, contains curcumin, which is a powerful antioxidant that helps to reduce inflammation and boost brain health. Cumin contains iron, which is essential for the formation of red blood cells and the prevention of anemia.

Coriander is rich in vitamin K, which is important for maintaining healthy bones and blood clotting. Ginger is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and can help to alleviate nausea and pain.

WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF KETO CURRY CHICKEN QUARTERS?

The predominant taste sensation in these Keto Curry Chicken Quarters is spiciness due to the curry powder with heavy garlic.  Some saltiness.

HOW DO YOU DE-BONE CHICKEN QUARTERS IF YOU DON’T WANT TO SERVE THE BONE IN THE CHICKEN?

WHAT NON-ALC WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO CURRY CHICKEN QUARTERS?

What non alcoholic wine partners well with these Keto Curry Chicken Quarters? Spicy foods always require a non alcoholic wine with some sweetness to offset the heat and spice.  While this dish is not “hot” per se, it’s still spicy.  So you have a couple of options.  Drink whatever non-alc wine you like (as long as it’s bone dry) and don’t worry about pairing the wine to salad. Enjoy your NA wine the way you like it. If you like to create harmony between the non alcoholic wine and the food, you’ll need some sweetness in the beverage to offset the heat and spice. 

Add a pinch of monk fruit sweetener to your glass of non alcoholic white wine.  Choose whites like Riesling or Gewurztraminer or a pink rose. These varieties taste great when bone dry or sweet.  So they will take well to the added sweetener.  The NA wine’s sweetness will nicely offset the heat and spice.

ZERO ALCOHOL WINE TIPS:

ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.
