This is a quick and easy recipe that never fails. The chicken stays moist and tender through the cooking.



Serves: 4 

  • 500g skinless, boneless chicken breast – cut into 2cm cubes
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 2 tablespoon green curry paste
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 tin (400ml) coconut cream
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoon white sugar
  • coriander to garnish


Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Toss chicken first in 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce, then in the flour, coating pieces evenly. Heat the oil in a large frypan over medium high heat. Place chicken in the frypan, cook and stir chicken until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken.
  2. Reduce heat to medium and stir in curry paste. Cook for 1 minute until fragrant, then stir in green onions, garlic and ginger; cook an additional 2 minutes. Return chicken to the pan, stirring to coat with the curry mixture. Stir the coconut milk, fish sauce, the remaining soy sauce and sugar into the chicken-curry mixture. Allow to simmer over medium heat for 20 minutes until the chicken is tender. Serve garnished with coriander leaves.

Nice, easy and tasty. I used a curry paste I got from the markets and added half a tin of sliced bamboo shoots - 08 Mar 2009

I cooked this recipe tonight for my Japanese guests and it went down a treat. I did add extra vegetable eg sliced zucchini, carrot, red and green capsicum. I will always use this recipe now and throw my much milder recipe away. Better than any other I have tasted in any restaurant. - 05 Mar 2014
