This chicken curry is made with coconut milk and sweetened with pineapple.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon curry paste
  • 1 (13.5 ounce) can coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 4 chicken thighs, cut into bite size pieces
  • ½ cup frozen peas
  • ½ cup chopped green bell pepper
  • ½ cup chopped carrot
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons chicken stock
  • ¾ cup chopped fresh pineapple

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Cook and stir the curry powder and curry paste in a saucepan over medium-low heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Pour the coconut milk into the saucepan and mix well. Stir in the fish sauce, brown sugar, and 1 cup chicken stock.
  2. 2 Place the chicken thighs, peas, peppers, and carrots into the saucepan with the curry sauce. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to low. Simmer until the chicken is cooked though, about 25 minutes.
  3. 3 Whisk together 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of cold chicken stock. Stir cornstarch mixture into the curry. Mix the pineapple into the curry and cook until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.

  1. I'm not sure what kinds of Thai curry some of these 5 star reviewers have had but based on what my mother's Thai friends have made for me this doesn't even come close - lol. That said it's not a bad recipe. Just not the kind of thai curry that I'm used to. It was - Read more ...
  2. Great recipe! Tastes like restaurant curry. It is important to TRIPLE the curry paste and curry powder. I first made it with the recipe proportions and it was bland. To fix the batch I repeated the first step of cooking the paste and powder in a saucepan and just added that to the first batch - Read more ...
  3. I LOVED LOVED LOVED this - tasted just like when we were in Thailand (or the closest I've come since then anyway). Thank you for sharing! The only change I made was to substitute chicken breasts for the thighs - and I followed the advice above and added an extra tsp of curry paste. AWESOME. - Read more ...

I added a little of the juice from the canned pineapple mixed with - Read more ...
  5. Very good curry chicken!! Thanks so much for this recipe. Used chicken breasts because that is what I had on hand. I followed the recipe exactly & it was perfect. Served over brown rice. Next time I may leave the pineapple out just because I think it would be just as good without it. Also - Read more ...

  7. I LOVE this recipe! I have added straw mushrooms before or substituted chicken for tofu and chickenbroth for vegetable broth. It is still delicious! (when substituting tofu: drain tofu put between paper towels and put weights on top. I usually use canned goods inside of a pan. After an hour cut the tofu into triangles - Read more ...
  8. This was my first attempt with this type of food and I followed the recipe. I will use a bit more paste next time because I prefer med/spicy but this was easy and VERY good!
  9. I submitted this recipe so keep in mind the rating is biased...unfortunately the editors took out my notes from the original submission but I think there are a couple of things that will help prepare this. 1) Curry paste is a mixture of curry powder ghee lemongrass and other spices. It can be found commercially - Read more ...
