Green Chicken Curry Recipe

Green Chicken Curry Recipe


1 tablespoon Cooking oil

1 Chopped onion

2 tablespoons Green curry paste (ready made)

1 1/2 cups Coconut milk

1/2 cups Water

500 g Chicken thigh fillets, cut into bite-sized pieces

100 g Green beans, cut into short pieces

6 Kaffir lime leaves

1 tablespoon Fish sauce

1 tablespoon Lime juice

1 teaspoon Finely grated lime rind

2 teaspoons Soft brown sugar

1/4 cup Fresh coriander leaves


Heat the oil in a wok or heavy-based pan. Add the onion and curry paste to the wok and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add the coconut milk and water to the wok and bring to the boil. Add the chicken pieces, beans and lime leaves to the wok, stirring to combine. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until the chicken is tender. Add the fish sauce, lime juice, lime rind and sugar to the wok, stir to combine. Sprinkle with fresh coriander leaves just before serving. Serve with steamed rich.


Note: Chicken thigh fillets are sweet in flavor and have a good texture for curries, but you can also use breast fillets if you prefer. Do not overcook fillets or they will become tough.
