At the point when you don’t know what to make for supper, this smooth coconut curry chicken consistently comes through. It’s quick, delightful, and sound! and keeping in mind that I will in general lean toward veggies over meat I make butternut squash curry.
Today we’re utilizing red curry in this dish close by yellow curry powder and a decent measure of coriander. In case you’re thinking about what coconut curry possesses a flavor like, it’s somewhat sweet, however for the most part appetizing with traces of zest from the red curry. Red curry is regularly produced using squashed red chilies, garlic, lemongrass, shallots, ginger, and fish glue. We amp up those flavors with extra garlic, ginger, and onions.
Curry powder has an exceptional flavor with both appetizing and sweet flavors. Cumin, turmeric, and inlet leaf give curry powder a profound, natural, and appetizing flavor while the sweet flavors, for example, cinnamon and cloves include brilliance and sweetness. With the entirety of the different coconut items, it’s difficult to tell what will work best in your coconut curry chicken. To help, I’m separating it underneath.
In this coconut curry chicken, we utilize full fat coconut milk. Light coconut milk won’t thicken and give you a rich full flavor like standard coconut milk. Cream of coconut is unreasonably sweet and coconut cream will in general be excessively thick (and overpoweringly coconut enhanced) for this coconut curry chicken.

- 3 tablespoons coconut oil, separated
- 1/2 medium yellow onion, diced (~1/2 cup)
- 3 cloves minced garlic (~1 and 1/2 teaspoons)
- 2 tablespoons finely minced ginger (from a 1 and 1/2 inch piece)
- 2 teaspoons yellow curry powder
- 3 tablespoons red curry paste (I use Thai Kitchen; reduce or increase as desired for spice levels)
- 2 teaspoons ground coriander
- 1 large red bell pepper
- 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast or thighs, cut into 1 inch pieces
- Fine sea salt and freshly cracked pepper
- 1 can full fat coconut milk (NOT lite)
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons fish sauce, optional
- 1/4 cup cilantro and/or basil, diced
- Serve over/with: cooked basmati rice and naan bread with additional lime wedges
- Optional: chopped peanuts or cashews
- Start by prepping ingredients: dice the onion, mince the garlic, and mince the ginger. I peel the ginger with a spoon or vegetable peeler and then finely mince it. Thinly slice the red bell pepper into long vertical strips and then cut those strips in half horizontally.
- Heat 2 tablespoons coconut oil in a large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and saute for 3-5 minutes or until onions are beginning to get golden. Add the garlic and ginger. Stir to coat everything with the oil. Lower the heat to low and add in the curry powder, red curry paste, and coriander. Stir often for 2-3 minutes or until lightly toasted and fragrant.
- Return the heat to medium high. Add in the remaining 1 tablespoon coconut oil and the red pepper. Stir for 1-2 minutes and then add in the bite-sized pieces of chicken. Sprinkle on salt and pepper to taste (I add 1 teaspoon fine sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper). Cook, stirring often for about 4-5 minutes or until the chicken is browned on both sides, but not cooked through.
- Pour in the coconut milk, lime juice, and brown sugar (to taste; I start with just 1 tablespoon). Stir until chicken is cooked through (juices run clear and it is cooked to 165 degrees F) and curry is slightly thickened . If desired, stir in the fish sauce.
- Serve over rice and/or with naan bread. Garnish individual plates with cilantro, basil, and/or crushed peanuts/cashews. Serve additional lime wedges by the side if desired.
