Thai Green Curry with Chicken

Thai Green Curry with Chicken

Thai Green Curry with Chicken

This Thai Chicken Green Curry gets its lush green color from the chilies used in the chile paste. Thai food is known for its balance of flavors and textures. In this Thai green chicken curry recipe, that balance is achieved with the sweetness of palm sugar, tartness of tamarind and lime leaves, and spiciness from green and red chilies. Add the creaminess of the coconut milk you begin to understand why Thai food is so popular. This recipe calls for Thai eggplants, which you can substitute with purple eggplant or other vegetables such as green beans, baby corn and mushrooms.

1 Chicken Breast, Sliced

Ingredients for Green Curry Paste

For those of you who are highly motivated, here is the recipe for fresh green curry paste. Your efforts will be rewarded a fresh flavor that you won’t get from curry paste in a jar!

15 Green Spur Chilies, chopped (can be substituted with Serrano Chilies)

4 Green Bird’s Eye Chilies, Chopped

2 Tablespoons Lemongrass, bottom 3rd of stalk with outer leaves removed

1 1/2 Teaspoons Galangal (or fresh ginger) finely sliced

1/2 Teaspoon Kaffir Lime Zest

2 Tablespoons Shallot, finely chopped

2 Tablespoons Ginger, finely chopped

2 Tablespoons Coriander Root, chopped

1 Teaspoon Tumeric

1/2 Teaspoon Roasted Coriander Seeds

1/2 Teaspoon Roasted Black Pepper

1 Teaspoon Shrimp Paste


The paste is most flavorful if the curry is made by combining them using a mortar and pestle. Otherwise, you can use a food processor or blender. Process until found in to a fine paste. It can be stored in a sealed glass container covered with a layer of vegetable oil over the top in the refrigerator for several months.

*If you use store bought green curry paste, it will likely have less water than freshly made curry paste. Use 1/2 the suggested amount in this recipe and add more until the dish is to your liking.
