Protein Sparing Butter Chicken over CARNIVORE RICE

Protein Sparing Butter Chicken over CARNIVORE RICE

My son Kai and I love to watch MasterChef. On one episode, a contestant made Butter Chicken over Rice.

Kai asked if we could make butter chicken with rice and I said absolutely!


To make PSMF Butter Chicken, I used my protein sparing sour cream!

This recipe is featured in my best selling book Pure Protein Cookbook which is a favorite book of many of my readers!

Calories 325.5


  • 4 6 ounce boneless skinless chicken breasts


  • 1/2 cup chicken broth (or plain yogurt for non-PSMF)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon Redmond Real salt


  • 1 tablespoon butter flavored coconut oil (or ghee if not dairy free)
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 2 tablespoons chicken broth
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 14 ounces crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder (more or less depending on desired heat)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon Redmond Real salt
  • 1 cup Protein Sparing Sour Cream Click HERE
  • 2 drops stevia glycerite
  • 1/2 teaspoon kasoori methi (or dried fenugreek leaves)


  • 12 large egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons beef broth (or chicken broth)
  • 1 teaspoon organic tamari sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce (or 1/2 teaspoon salt)


  • Fresh cilantro leaves chopped


  • In a bowl, combine chicken with all of the ingredients for the chicken marinade; let marinate for 30 minutes (or overnight).
  • Heat half of the coconut oil in a large skillet or pot over medium-high heat. When sizzling, add chicken pieces in batches of two or three, making sure not to crowd the pan. Fry until browned for only 3 minutes on each side (you will finish cooking the chicken in the sauce). Remove chicken and set aside. 
  • Heat another tablespoon of coconut oil in the same pan. Fry the onions until they start to sweat (about 6 minutes) while scraping up any browned bits stuck on the bottom of the pan. Deglaze with 2 to 3 tablespoons of chicken broth. 
  • Add garlic and ginger and sauté for 1 minute until fragrant, then add ground coriander, cumin and garam masala. Let cook for about 30 seconds or until fragrant, while stirring often.
  • Add crushed tomatoes, chili powder and salt. Let simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until sauce thickens and becomes a deep brownish-red color.
  • Remove from heat, and use a stick blender to puree until smooth. 
  • Stir the psmf sour cream (or cream), stevia and crushed kasoori methi (or fenugreek leaves) through the sauce. Add the chicken with juices back into the pan and cook for another 10 minutes until chicken is cooked through and the sauce is thick and bubbling.
  • Meanwhile make the carnivore rice. Place the egg whites into a medium-sized bowl. Add the broth, tamari and fish sauce and whisk until well combined.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and cook until the mixture thickens and small curds form, while scraping the bottom of the pan and whisking to keep large curds from forming. (A whisk works well for this task.) This will take about 7 minutes. Place the carnivore rice onto a platter and top with the butter chicken. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve.

Doesn’t Donna look AMAZING? I’m so proud of her progress in only a MONTH 🙌

“Hi Maria, I got up to 275 pounds. I signed up for your Protein Sparing Modified Fast Package.

I can’t believe the impact this package has had on me!

The education that came with it was a huge factor in motivating me then the recipes I found were amazing!

It wasn’t until after I got this package that I realized I had a membership included.

I started at 275 and I am now at 254. My first goal was 180 pounds but now that I see how this is working, I plan to readjust that goal when I get there.

God bless you and Craig for what you doing!” -Donna

    I am so interested in your info, cookbooks and programs. 😁
    I’ve received your emails for a long time. I’m 59, 170 @ 5’2”, active and somewhat muscular with several autoimmune labels. No meds, I have alluded those by lifestyle for years. Now post menopausal and weight struggles won’t stop. 😳
    I guess I shared all that to say…the reason for not jumping in is…I have a hard time digesting protein (tried enzymes with hcl which hurts my stomach also). Any ideas on how to do these programs?🤔
    Thank you for y’all’s hard work. 😊
