Thai Green Curry Chicken

Thai Green Curry Chicken – a green curry chicken with lots of Thai flavor. You can make it in minutes any night of the week! And with ingredients you can find at your local grocery store.

We love Thai food at our house.  We love Indian food too.  If it has curry in the name, there is a good chance we will like it.  This Indian Chicken Curry Recipe is one of our favorites.  But sometimes you want to mix up the flavors a bit, and that is where this green curry chicken comes in.

I am all over a dinner you can get on the table in just minutes, but totally mix up the flavors!  This uses ingredients you can have in your fridge and pantry and just pull out and make for even those busy weeknights.

Thai green chicken curry uses a Thai green curry paste. It comes in a little jar that you can find in the Asian isle at the grocery store.  I found it at Walmart and Target as well as my normal local grocery stores. So hopefully you won’t have a problem finding it.  You just mix it with some coconut milk and it makes one delicious sauce!

Thai green curry is one of my favorites when I go out for Thai food, and who knew it was so easy to make at home.  Seriously, you are going to love this. It is so full of flavor, not spicy at all, and just comforting. And I love that it uses pretty easy to find ingredients, so I don’t have to make special trips to the store.

This Thai green curry recipe could not be simpler.  Trust me, you can make these even on those crazy busy nights!  The coconut milk makes the chicken super tender, and the sauce is just a handful of ingredients.  Serve over rice or even cauliflower rice for one tasty dinner. Just toss on fresh cilantro at the end to make it bright and fresh.  Your family is going to love it.

Do you have a favorite Thai dish?  Often times I am a Pad Thai girl when we go out, but sometimes you just want to mix it up. And I always lean towards a curry. I don’t know about you, but I love making restaurant favorites at home.  Things like Panera Mac and Cheese are so good at home, and then you don’t have to deal with crowds, driving, the time, and everything else that you deal with by going out.
