I use rice flour. Sprinkle on the sauce and whisk in then cook briefly to thicken. Almond meal in a pinch would work too. Wondering about coconut flour as it seems to love to soak up liquids.

Coconut milk/cream.

If this is Indian "chicken curry" add in some yogurt or lite cream to make it creamy. Or soak some cashews in water for about 15-20 mins and then blitz in a blender to create a creamy liquid and add to your dish. Both are common techniques for Indian versions of the dish.

Your ideas are better than mine.
Thanks for reminding me.
(I was thinking generic thickeners, though the beans are used & potatoes are used in Indian cooking).

Sir in some Greek yogurt.

I have also added fat free 1/2 & 1/2 if you are concerned about fat.

Not necessarily the best, but options (depending on what you like or have on hand):
• bread crumbs or croutons
• cooked rice
• cooked beans
• cooked potatoes or sweet potatoes.
Any of these as is or buzzed in blender/processor
