Here's a quick and easy recipe for flavor-packed Thai Green Curry Chicken. A can of coconut milk and a jar of Thai green curry paste brings authentic Thai flavors to this simple, one pan, chicken and vegetable curry. A great dish for the weekly dinner rotation.
After spending a week in the kitchen developing a recipe for Thai steamed fish I wasn't quite ready to leave the land of coconut milk and curry and my thoughts turned to a longtime favorite dish: Thai green curry chicken. This dish has been a family dinner staple in our weekly rotation for years and I've shared the recipe with countless friends way before I had a food blog. It's about time I share it here!
It's saucy and flavorful and brings happiness to everyone at the table and also to the cook, because it's a cinch to throw together!
HOW TO MAKE THAI GREEN CURRY CHICKEN
Something I've learned over the years is that you can make a very delicious Thai green curry dish with little more than store-bought Thai green curry paste and a can of coconut milk. Adding aromatics like onions and ginger, and fresh herbs like basil and cilantro, takes the dish to even higher heights of deliciousness.
- For this recipe everything is cooked in one pan. I use my cast iron skillet.
- Sliced boneless chicken breasts are sautéed with onions, garlic and ginger and then simmered with coconut milk, basil, cilantro, ginger and a good amount of flavor-packed Thai green curry paste.
- Fresh snow peas are added towards the end and cooked for a short time, so they are bright green and crisp
- Once you have everything chopped and cans opened, it takes only 15 minutes to cook this curry dish
- Serve Thai green curry chicken with steamed white rice on the side to soak up all the fragrant curry sauce.
Which Thai Green Curry Paste is the Best?
As I mentioned, I've been really pleased with using store-bought Thai curry paste for this recipe.
I've gotten great results with Maesri Thai Green Curry Paste and with Thai Kitchen Green Curry Paste. The Maesri is spicier than the Thai Kitchen so I recommend that you add a tablespoon at a time to your sauce and test for your desired degree of heat.
There's a wonderful harmony of complex flavors in the sauce – a quality that is prized in Thai Cuisine.
