Winter is here to stay and I could eat curries all day!
With all the Game of thrones memes out there I had to make that my opener. With that off my chest let’s get to the good part; food in the form of Thai green chicken curry. It’s green, it’s spicy it’s creamy and it’s so dam delicious you’ll make it all the time. Inspired by soups for the winter season it was time for something with a bit more bite and heat to warm things up.
I had this recipe on the back burner for some time as I ended up making it twice for family dinners. So they really are to blame.
Otherwise I’m super thrilled to finally share it with you. so to start things off you’ll need to make this gorgeous homemade Thai green Curry paste recipe here
It really sets the tone for the curry dish by adding tremendous flavour, warmth form chilli and ginger, and a freshness from the lime, lemongrass and herbs. This is just the beginning of a love story so be sure to make this dish when you’re out to impress that special someone.
- 6 Chicken Thighs (chopped & deboned)
- Olive oil
- 1 Medium red onion
- 1 Bunch Cilantro (Dhania)
- 3 Tbsp Thai Green Curry Paste
- 1 Can Coconut Milk
- Salt & Black Pepper to taste
- Spinach paste (Optional)
- 1 cup cooked or frozen peas
- Season chicken with salt & freshly cracked black pepper.
- On a medium flame add olive oil to a nonstick skillet. Then brown the chicken for 2 mins on each side
- Reduce heat and add in the curry paste. Coat the chicken well and simmer for 5 mins to release the beautiful aromas from the paste. In the meantime dice some onion and cilantro then set aside.
- Next add in the coconut milk, chopped cilantro & onion then simmer for 12 mins.
- To add more colour add in 1 tbsp pureed baby spinach. Now this step is completely optional I just prefer mine to be a bit more green. To puree the spinach I used water and some of the stew from the curry.
Stick to using chicken thighs for this recipe as they absorb a lot more flavour than chicken breast. However if you do use chicken breast reduce the cooking time.
