Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

2 teaspoons oil
1-2 tablespoons curry paste
4 cans (13.5 ounces each) coconut milk
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup chicken broth
8 boneless chicken breast halves
2 avocados


Mash oil and curry paste together in a large wok or large skillet over medium heat. Add a few tablespoons coconut milk and continue stirring to thin curry paste. Add more coconut milk and stir together well. When curry paste is well blended in, add the rest of the coconut milk and turn heat up to medium-high to bring to a boil. Add sugar and chicken broth. Boil vigorously for a minute, then turn down slightly to a gentle, steady boil to reduce. Boil gently, stirring frequently, and reduce to about 3 cups of noticeably thicker sauce. Even in a large wok, this reduction will take about 30 minutes — longer if you don’t keep it at a slow, steady boil.

# Cut chicken breasts across the grain at a slight angle into 1/2-inch slices. When sauce is reduced, add chicken breast slices and bring back to a boil. Turn heat to medium, simmer 2 minutes and remove from the heat. Let stand uncovered in the hot wok about 4 minutes to finish cooking.

# Meanwhile, peel and slice the avocados. Arrange the slices over the botton of a serving platter. Pour the chicken and sauce over the avocados. Serve hot over rice.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

I made Nichole's Hot Thai Curry Chicken and my husband and I both love it. I added cut-up red potato, green onion, carrot (and added sweet peas at the very end) to the dish, and allowed it to simmer until the veggies were soft. We will make this on a regular basis - it's a keeper! This dish is creamy, spicy, delicous and ultra satisfying. Great job Nichole!
