Total time
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Thai
Serves: 2-4
  • 2 -3 Chicken breasts (cut into 2cm chunks)
  • Green curry paste (4-5 tablespoons)
  • Coconut milk (1 can)
  • Potatoes (2-3 large)
  • Fish sauce (1 tablespoon)
  • Palm sugar or white sugar (1-2 tablespoons)
  • ½ cup fresh Thai basil leaves
  • Pinch of salt
  • Steamed Jasmine Rice, to serve
  1. First of all prepare the chicken. So cut the breasts into small chunks.
  2. Get the peeler out and peel those potatoes, and cut in the middle and length ways so you will have 4 chunks.
  3. Take out a wok and put on a medium heat, open your can of coconut milk and add the top part of the tin, the part that’s really milky, we don’t want to add much liquid yet.
  4. Add in 4-5 tablespoons of green curry paste, this depends on how spicy you want it though, we recommend using Mae Ploy brand for your curries, we always use Mae Ploy, we find they have the best authentic Thai taste.
  5. Stir in the paste until the coconut milk separates, this will take about 10 minutes, keep stirring and flipping, don’t let the mixture sit, as the flavors will burn.
  6. Add the rest of the coconut milk to the wok, and throw a pinch of salt in as well.
  7. If you think the consistency is too creamy add half or a full tin of water to the coconut milk tin.
  8. Bring this to the boil.
  9. Add the potatoes in the wok, wait until the potatoes are done, check to see if they're fluffy.
  10. Once the potatoes have a fluffy texture, it’s time to add the chicken, fish sauce, sugar.
  11. Give it a stir, don’t stir it too much as the potatoes will break apart.
  12. Wait until the chicken has cooked, then place the basil in, give it a nice stir and serve!
Cooks Note If you really want a kick, add some of your own chili’s, try the curry paste first though, as this paste is a Thai brand and is fairly spicy already =) Thai green curry is best served with Thai Jasmine rice or noodles!
