Thai Green Curry Chicken

thai 2

A few days ago I posted the recipe for green curry paste. Today I am going to show you how to use it in a dish. The picture I used above is one where I experimented with some Udon Noodles cooked in the dish. I found that this diffused the flavour of the chicken and instead infused some of the noodle flavours into it, which may not be the best flavour combo for this dish. I tried currying the chicken on its own a couple of days ago however and that produced far better results and that is the recipe I am posting for you today. 🙂

Recipe

  • 1/3 cup green curry paste
  • 3 cups chicken cut into 1 inch pieces (can be larger or smaller just make sure all the piece are cut to equal sizes so that they cook evenly)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 25 – 37.5 grams coconut milk powder (roughly half to 3/4 pack of the Maggi Coconut Milk Powder if you are using that)
  • 2.5 cups water
  • 1 bullion cube

 Method

  • Season the chicken with salt and set aside. (See tip below)
  • Mix the coconut powder with half cup water.
  • Using a medium sized pot, on medium heat, add the green curry paste and half of the coconut milk mixture and cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Add your chicken and the other half of the coconut milk mixture and cook for an addition 10-15 minutes or until the liquid dries.
  • Add the remaining two cups of water.
  • Cook until you have reached your desired thickness of your gravy. The thicker the gravy the tastier it is.
  • Serve with Basmati rice and enjoy the deliciousness.

 Tip

Before washing out your chicken, submerge the chicken in water, add 2 tablespoons baking soda to it, mix and leave for 15 minutes. This tenderises the chicken as well as removes any odors from it. Drain and wash as normal.

  1. One reason I’m following you is that I used to live in Trinidad as a child a long time ago. You’re bringing back the smells and flavors of a place I loved. I’m gonna do some of this cooking too.
