Easy coconut curry chicken that has amazing flavor and comes together in just 20 minutes!


  • 3-4 3-4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to even thickness
  • 1 small yellow or white onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons yellow curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon Thai red curry paste
  • 2 15-ounce cans coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • salt to taste (I usually use about 1 teaspoon, *see note)
  • juice of 1 lime (plus additional lime wedges for serving)
  • 2 cups thinly sliced red cabbage
  • handful fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 4 cups cooked white rice, for serving
  • Instructions

  • Chop chicken into 1-inch (bite sized) pieces. Drizzle a large pan or skillet with oil over medium heat.
  • Add chicken, onions, and peppers to pan. Saute 1-2 minutes. Sprinkle yellow curry powder over chicken and veggies. Continue to saute 5-7 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  • Add red curry paste, coconut milk, sugar, and lime juice to pan. Stir over medium heat until sauce is begins to bubble. Stir in cabbage and cook 1-2 minutes just until cabbage is tender (OR you can steam the cabbage or microwave it on high for 2-3 minutes and serve it on top of the curry instead of cooking it into the curry – I usually prefer to serve it on top like this)
  • Taste, add salt, and taste again. (Add more salt as needed, see note)
  • Serve with cooked white rice and garnish with fresh, chopped cilantro. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing on top.
