Chicken Mughlai

I’ve been pretty tired of the same old flavors over and over, so I decided to start trying out Indian recipes. I’m no expert on Indian cuisine, or any cuisine for that matter, but a little experimentation is good for the soul. All cuisines have dishes which are GAPS legal or which can easily be made GAPS legal.

I didn’t have all of the right spices or ingredients. But working with what I had on hand, I used an excellent youtube video from Eat East Indian to create this version of Chicken Mughlai. The family loved it so much that I made it again and brought it along on our vacation.

Unfortunately, I lost my pictures of the finished product! I guess I’ll just have to make it again and update this post!

Chicken Mughlai


  • 8 pieces of chicken thighs and drumsticks
  • 1 cup dairy kefir
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 3 tsp real salt
  • 2 tsp red curry paste
  • 1 Tbsp coriander powder
  • 1 Tbsp cumin powder
  • 2 Tbsp lemon or lime juice


  1. Mix all ingredients except chicken pieces thoroughly with a whisk
  2. Rinse chicken pieces and pat dry
  3. Put chicken pieces in a dish and cover them completely with the marinade
  4. Put in refrigerator for at least one hour, I did about 4
  5. Preheat to 375 F
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes, then turn the pieces over and return to oven until it is done (temp of 165F)
