Prep Time:

15 min

Cook Time:

25 min


  • 1 pound (450g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced

  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced

  • 1 small zucchini, sliced

  • 1 small eggplant, diced

  • 1 cup baby corn, halved

  • 1 cup snap peas

  • 3-4 kaffir lime leaves (optional)

  • 2-3 tablespoons fish sauce

  • 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar (adjust to taste)

  • Juice of 1 lime

  • Fresh basil leaves, for garnish

  • Salt and pepper to taste




  1. Prepare the Curry Paste: If you're using homemade curry paste, combine the red curry paste and vegetable oil in a large pan or wok over medium heat. Stir and cook for 2-3 minutes until fragrant.

  2. Cook the Chicken: Add the chicken pieces to the pan and stir-fry for about 5-6 minutes until they are cooked through and lightly browned. Remove the cooked chicken and set it aside.

  3. Create the Curry Base: In the same pan, pour in the coconut milk and stir until the coconut milk and curry paste are well combined. Add the kaffir lime leaves if using. Let it simmer for a few minutes to infuse the flavors.

  4. Add Vegetables: Stir in the sliced bell peppers, zucchini, eggplant, baby corn, and snap peas. Cook for about 5-7 minutes or until the vegetables are tender but still crisp.

  5. Season the Curry: Return the cooked chicken to the pan. Season the curry with fish sauce, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. Stir in the lime juice and adjust the seasoning to your taste preferences.

  6. Simmer: Allow the curry to simmer for an additional 5 minutes, letting all the ingredients meld together and the sauce thicken slightly.

  7. Garnish and Serve: Remove the kaffir lime leaves, if used, and garnish the Thai Red Curry Chicken with fresh basil leaves. Serve hot over steamed jasmine rice or noodles.
