  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Poultry, Thai

 Ingredients List

  • 1 Chicken Breast
  • 2 Chicken Thighs
  • 1/2 c Coconut Cream
  • 1/4 c Green Curry Paste
  • 3 c Coconut Milk
  • 1 1/2 c Diced Eggplant
  • 2 tb Fish Sauce
  • 1 tb Palm or Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 ts Coriander leaves
  • 1/2 c Basil leaves
  • 3 Red chilis


1. Bone and skin the chicken breast and thighs, you
should have about
1lb of meat. Cut the meat into large, bite sized
pieces, and set

2. In a medium, heavy bottomed saucepan, warm the
coconut cream over a
medium heat until it boils gently. Adjust the heat
to maintain a
gentle boil and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring
The coconut cream will become fragrant as it
thickens. When you
see tiny pools of oil glistening on the surface add
the curry paste
and stir to dissolve it into the coconut cream.
Continue cooking for
1 to 2 minutes, until the curry paste has a
pleasing aroma.

3. Add the chicken pieces and stir fry for 1-2 minutes
to coat them
evenly with the paste. Cook for about 2 minutes.
Increase the heat
and add the coconut milk, eggplant, fish sauce,
sugar and salt and
stir well. Stir in the coriander, adjust the heat
to maintain a gentle
active boil and cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring
occasionally. Taste
and adjust the seasoning with a little more fish
sauce, sugar, or curry

4. When the chicken is done, and the eggplant is just
tender, remove from
the heat and transfer to a serving bowl. Scatter
basil leaves, chopped
chillis and some coriander on the top. Serve.

Preparation in advance:

Prepare it up to the point where you add the
coriander, except *DO NOT* add the eggplant. Cool to
room temperature, cover, and refridgerate for up to 24
hours. To serve bring the curry back to a gentle boil
over a medium heat. Add the eggplant and carry on with
the normal instructions from there.

An alternative to the eggplant is Snow Peas. I
personally prefer them, but both work well.
