If you like Thai, I recommend Thai Red curry paste. Of course you can really use any of your favorite curry paste/powder.

If you are thinking something else than Asian flavors, I’ve also tried Jamaican curry powder before and that ends up super tasty also.

Yes you can! Many people I know do this. I recommend freezing in batches if you really want to reheat it later. Then you can reheat each unit by itself.

How to make curry chicken with potatoes?

Anyway, here is how to make coconut curry chicken with potatoes…

Ingredients

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 medium sweet onion or yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 russet potato, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced (about 2.5 tsp of minced garlic)
  • 1 can of full fat coconut milk (13.5 oz)
  • 4 tbsp curry powder or curry paste (or a mix of both!)
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce (if you’re making Thai curry)
  • 4 tablespoons of butter or coconut oil.
  • Salt, as desired (really depends on the kind of curry powder/paste you end up using, some of them are already very salty)

Instructions

Do all your prep first, if you haven’t already: Cut your potatoes up in to small cubes,  slice up your onions, chop up your garlic, and cut your chicken in to small cubes.

Heat 2 tbsp of butter or coconut oil in a large skillet on medium low heat. Once it melts, add curry powder and/or curry paste in there.  Swirl it around until well blended.

Turn up the heat to medium high. Add in the coconut milk and mix well.

Add potatoes to the coconut curry blend, and bring to a boil and then let simmer.

While it’s simmering, in a separate skillet add 2 tbsp of butter or coconut oil on medium high heat. Add garlic and onions, and stir fry for 1 minute.

Add in the cubed chickens and cook for 5 minutes, stirring to cook evenly. Remove from heat and now add the meat, onion, and garlic mixture to the coconut curry blend.

Let it cook for about 10 minutes or when your potatoes and chicken is cooked thoroughly (and try not to die of hunger with all that delicious coconut milk aroma in the air!).

Remove from heat and serve! I recommend serving with some rice.

COCONUT CHICKEN CURRY WITH POTATOES (MADE WITHOUT PASTE!)

This easy and flavorful Chicken Curry is made with coconut milk and potatoes. It’s simple to make, yet results in a deeply flavorful curry that the whole family will love!

“We are IN LOVE with this recipe! It is such a delectable and warm blend of flavours; pure comfort food for me! Thank you Izzah for this simple and delicious addition to our menu!”

WHAT IS COCONUT CHICKEN CURRY WITH POTATOES

This coconut chicken curry is less ‘Thai’ and more ‘South Asian’ in that the spices and method is similar to a Pakistani and North Indian chicken curry. This curry uses no curry paste, just a handful of spices.

But, the bit of browning the onions and scouring the spice cabinet will be worth it because this curry is deeply flavorful and spicy (not thai-hot spicy but the more muted, South Asian-style spicy) while still being light and healthy.

The coconut milk and yogurt add a layer of creaminess, giving it an almost korma-like vibe. If you in the mood for more of a Thai chicken curry, check out my 20-Minute Coconut Lime Chicken Curry.

HOW TO SERVE COCONUT CHICKEN CURRY WITH POTATOES

Feel free to use any veggies you’d like and adjust the spice level to taste.  This goes perfectly with white rice which soaks up the sauce and serves as a blank canvas to absorb the flavors.

  • Increase the heat to high. Add the chicken and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes or until the chicken changes color. Add the coconut milk and yogurt and bring the mixture to a light boil. 
  • Lower the heat to low-medium, cover and allow to simmer for 15-16 minutes, or until the chicken is tender and vegetables are cooked through. Uncover and raise the heat to allow the sauce to thicken for 2-3 minutes, if desired.
  • Taste and adjust salt and seasoning. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve with white basmati rice.

Coconut Curry Chicken with Potatoes

Coconut curry chicken with potatoes filled with aromatic and flavors you can’t resist. It was prepared along with peas, carrots, spices, and of course coconut milk.  Preparing this coconut curry chicken with potatoes was brief because it was one dish and not so much cleaning required.

I used Thai coconut milk, you can use any brand you like, also I didn’t have fresh peas so I used frozen peas and carrots if you have fresh peas and carrots feel free to use them. I used chicken thigh (bones-in) but you can use chicken breast, just diced them into bite-sizes and season as the recipe stated. Chicken breasts take a lesser time to cook so adjust the cooking time when cooking the chicken.
