Thai Green Chicken curry features on our menu often, It is a breeze to make, affordable and delivers on flavor everytime. When making Thai Food, it is important to have all your ingredients on hand. A hot wok waits for nobody.Slice your vegetables and chicken beforehand and keep all the spices close by.
There are key ingredients in Thai cooking and your results will just not be the same without these. I am thinking of kaffir lime leaves, lemon grass, curry paste and fish sauce… Stock up on these items and you can have a lovely Thai curry on your table in no time…

Thai Green Chicken Curry
1 tablespoon Cooking oil
1 onion – chopped
2 tablespoons Green curry paste
1 1/2 cups Coconut milk
1/2 cups Water
500 g Chicken breast fillets, cut into bite-size pieces
100 g red, yellow and green peppers
6 Kaffir lime leaves
1 tablespoon Fish sauce
1 tablespoon Lime juice
1 teaspoon Finely grated lime rind
2 teaspoons brown sugar
Fresh coriander
1 piece lemongrass – bashed with flat side of the knife to release flavor.


Heat the oil in a wok,Add the onion and curry paste to the wok and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add the coconut milk and water to the wok and bring to the boil.Add the chicken pieces, peppers, lemongrass and lime leaves to the wok, stirring to combine. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked. Now add the fish sauce, lime juice, lime rind and sugar to the wok, stir to combine. Serve on basmati rice with fresh coriander .

Ps. I have to just confess before I log off!! At the moment I am running 3 websites. I cannot yet move over to the new one so I have to keep this one going, but it is tough!!! I am sorry for not visiting or commenting as often as I used to. I really am! I see that I have even lost a few “followers” and I am sad about that!! I think you all are so amazing and wish that there were a few more hours in each day!

    Ha ha you wont loose me either!
    I just feel sad that I don’t get time to comment on yours or everyone elses amazing blogs as often as I’d like to.
    I try but as you say it is so hard sometimes.
    I am loving your recipe and your photos (as always) are amazing!
    Love the ‘I am tired’ picture too!

    A very healthy curry and beautiful as always.

    You won’t lose me either and I love your French pout picture.

    It’s hard to find enough time in the day to do everything and I completely understand. It happens to me all of the time. We have only one computer and my husband says I hog it too much. Fathers Day is coming up – think I should get him his own?

    Hugs and hang in there. We love ya.

    Never will I stop following! Told you, it’s like my fix. Just shared 2 of your recipes with friends this morning again.
    We all understand Tired. If I had time to blog half as much as you, I would actually feel rather proud of myself.

    Are you really tired? Well, managing 3 websites of course need lots of energy and dedication. I think you are doing pretty well Nina.

    Chicken curry sound superb!
    Stay well,

  21. Junglefrog 30 May 2009 at 6:11 pm #

    I know how you feel…! I’ve been way to busy lately myself, so I haven’t even have time to do much blogging at all… Sad but true! I have so many unread blogposts still to go through but it seems impossible to keep up at the moment…
    The curry looks delicious!

  22. Proud Italian Cook 30 May 2009 at 6:19 pm #

    I’m here for you Nina!!! I love your blog, it just gets so hard to comment on a regular basis, I wish there was an easier way, sometimes it’s so overwelming and theres no time with everything else we have to do in our lives. Big hug, get some sleep!!

  23. Lori Lynn 31 May 2009 at 2:57 am #

    Hi Nina! I made Thai green curry last night, if the photos came out I will post it too. Haven’t looked at them yet.

    You are so cute. Gee, don’t you wonder why you lose a follower? And in your case, all your recipes and photos are amazing. It’s not as if there is a limit on following a blog. If someone left you, it is certainly their loss. Now, rest up, and don’t feel any pressure, those of us who appreciate what you do will always be here.

    Chin up girl…hang in there…you’re working too hard!

    I’m partial to green curries and this is delicate, easy on the eye and no doubt delicious.

  26. Jeanne 26 June 2009 at 1:00 am #

    Please don't think you've lost ME, dear Nina!! But as you saw over at Cooksister, things here are hectic too πŸ™ Love the photo of you – I FEEL your pain! So when do we get to see the new site??
