How to Make Thai Chicken Curry

  • In a slow cooker, you’ll combine coconut milk, chicken broth, red curry paste, brown sugar, coriander, cumin, ginger, garlic and salt.
  • Then add in chicken, carrots and onions (and optional lemongrass).
  • Cover and cook on low until tender, about 5 hours, while adding the bell pepper at about 4 hours and 15 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken and shred.
  • Mix in lime juice, fish sauce, peanut butter then toss in shredded chicken and cilantro.
  • Serve with rice, peanuts and more cilantro.

One word, YUMMMMMMM!

Can I Make This in the Instant Pot?

To cook in the Instant Pot reduce broth to 1/4 cup and cook it on the “manual” setting for 13 minutes and I’d probably just add the peppers in at the beginning or sauté them just in a skillet in a little oil if you like them crisp tender.

Then once time is complete, use the quick release method. Once steaming stops add the remaining as listed at the end.

Whichever method you choose to cook this be sure to serve it with the peanuts, because aren’t those crunchy little bits the best part?

Can I Use a Fish Sauce Substitute?

Fish sauce is essential in Thai dishes. It adds a subtle umami flavor to this slow cooker coconut curry chicken that’s tough to replicate. Don’t worry, your Thai coconut chicken curry won’t taste like fish!

Tips for the Best Thai Chicken Curry

  • You want to use canned coconut milk in this recipe, not the stuff in a carton. Canned coconut milk is often found in the Asian aisle of a grocery store.
  • If you can’t find lemongrass, you can omit it. It’s not a make it or break it ingredient in this slow cooker curry, but if you have some on hand I highly recommend using it!
  • Trimmed chicken thighs can be used in place of chicken breasts. The cook time would be the same.
