    Easy Thai Chicken Curry Recipe Is Better Than Going Out for Asian Food

    Chicken curry is a popular Asian dish, and I understand why! It’s very simple to make but packs an enormous amount of flavor.

    This spicy Thai chicken curry recipe is loaded with the flavors of curry, peanut, chile and coconut. It’s served with sautéed vegetables and steamed white rice. If you’re a seafood lover, you can turn this chicken recipe into a shrimp recipe instead.

    Serve this easy copycat recipe over steamed white rice with a side of vegetables for dinner. Sprinkle with crushed peanuts or serve with lime wedges, if desired.

    Cuisine: Thai
    Prep Time: 20 minutes
    Cook Time: 10 minutes
    Total Time: 30 minutes
    Servings: 4



    • canola oil, for frying
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1/4 cup flour
    • 1/2 cup cornstarch
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 teaspoon hot sauce (I prefer Frank’s RedHot)
    • 1 teaspoon sea salt
    • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
    • 2 chicken breasts, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces


    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 2 green onions, chopped
    • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, minced
    • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
    • 1 tablespoon red curry powder
    • 1 cup coconut milk
    • 1/2 cup chicken broth

    For Serving

    • crushed peanuts
    • steamed white rice
    • cilantro or parsley or lime wedges, for garnish

    Here’s how to make it:

    1. Heat canola oil to 365 degrees F in a deep fryer or deep-dish pan.
    2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine milk, flour, cornstarch, egg, hot sauce and sea salt. Mix well. Place the panko breadcrumbs in a different bowl.  Dip each chicken breast into the batter and then the breadcrumbs. Gently place each chicken piece in the oil and cook until lightly golden, about 4 to  5 minutes.
    3. Heat a pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot, add olive oil. Add the green onions, ginger and garlic. Sauté  for about 2 minutes.  Add the red curry powder, coconut milk and stock. Cook for 4 to  5 minutes. Lower the heat and reduce the sauce by about a third.
    4. Drizzle the sauce over the chicken. Garnish with crushed peanuts or cilantro or lime wedges, if desired, and serve over white rice.
