Thai Green Curry Chicken

Thai Green Chicken Curry is one of Thailand's most popular dishes. This recipe is wonderful to serve because it is so colourful. You don't have to be Thai to cook and enjoy this spicy dish. With the aid of the ready made Thai Green Curry Paste, this is a quick and easy recipe.

My husband and I love Thai Food. There was a time where we decided to have a food theme every week. Like one week Italian, or one week Latin and this week it is all Thai. Yes, as you can see on my postings, the Chicken Satay has already been posted and my Thai Sweet Sticky rice is still to be posted and now I am posting another best of Thai- Green Curry Chicken.


1-2 tablespoon of Thai green curry paste
1-½ lbs of chicken breast, cut into bite size
1 tablespoon cooking oil

1-½ cups coconut milk
½ cups water
4-5 kaffir lime leaves
1 tablespoon fish sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
1 red  bell peppers
bunch of string beans ( I used this to substitute the Thai Eggplant which I do not  have)
fresh basil leaves

Cooking Directions:
  • In a heavy sauce pan or wok, heat the oil and saute the green curry paste.
  • Add the 1 cup of coconut milk and water and bring to boil until it the oil surface.
  • Add the chicken, string beans and kaffir lime leaves,cook until no longer pink.

  • Add the fish sauce and sugar.
