Chicken Roti

Mmmmm mmm, this recipe is an #1 favourite in my house. Even the kiddos like it! It takes a while to simmer to the perfect tender goodness, but it is worth the wait. And meantime, you can be frying up the perfect Paleo Tortillas to go with them!

I should also mention that this recipe is not truly paleo, as it does include white potatoes. If you are sensitive to nightshades, you may want to pass on this recipe.

I have modified the recipe which was inspired by the one posted by Minna LaFortune on News Americas Now.


  • 2-3 pounds skinless boneless chicken thighs, but into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
Chicken filling
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 2-3 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 to 1 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • salt to taste
  • 2 cups peeled, cubed potatoes
  • 3-4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup frozen peas


Place the bite-sized pieces of chicken in a large bowl and add the marinade ingredients. Mix with a spoon (or hands) until they are well coated. Set aside for 10-30 minutes.

Meantime, mix all your spices for the filling, and dice up your onion and potatoes.

Heat your oil in a large skillet. Add your onions and your spice mix. Heat for 2-3 minutes until onions soften and spices become very fragrant.

Add your chicken and sauté for 2-3 more minutes.

Next, add your potatoes and chicken broth (just enough to barely cover the ingredients in the skillet, or even just below the top).

Bring to a boil, then let simmer until the sauce thickens. This typically takes about an hour to 75 minutes. You’ll know it’s almost ready when the potatoes really start to break down and the sauce starts to thicken. It will seem like it’s never going to get there, but in the last 20 minutes it thickens up quickly.

Add your frozen peas in the last 5-10 minutes of cooking.
