Chicken Green Curry Recipe

Difficulty: Medium | Total Time: 40 minutes | Active Time: | Makes: 2 servings

Green curry is my most favorite curry of all. It amazingly blends different flavors very well – sweet, spicy, and salty – with a fresh aroma from basil leaves. The typical Thai curry is usually made with Thai eggplants (small round green one), Opo or bamboo shoot.

Here is my green curry version with fresh bamboo shoot and king oyster mushroom. Note that you can use the recipe with other vegetables as well.

  • Chicken breast, 1pc, sliced
  • Fresh bamboo shoot, 1 root, cut into to 2″ long strips

  • Red bell pepper, 1/4, sliced (optional)
  • Green curry paste, 1tbsp

  2. Add green curry paste to it and stir to cook the paste for a few minutes.
  3. Add 1/4 cup of coconut milk and turn to medium high heat. Stir constantly to bring out more curry flavor. As you see the bubbling green oil, it is ready to add another batch of coconut milk (1/4 cup) and stir. Repeat the step until finishing the coconut milk.
  4. Add chicken to the curry sauce. Stir to cook.
