Curried coconut chicken in a creamy coconut milk sauce is a tasty Asian dish recipe with extremely tender chicken. Serve it over rice for a fast and easy weeknight dinner! This is one of my go-to meals.
I adore this dish!! We had this for Curried Coconut Chicken for dinner a while back and I was in heaven after tasting it. My husband and I LOVE Asian food, especially Thai food and Indian food, and this was one of our new favorite meals. The chicken turned out super tender (which doesn’t always happen when I cook) and the flavors were amazing, yet subtle, and blended together so perfectly. The basil gives it a nice color, too! As a bonus, it was actually really simple to make and the coconut milk sauce was perfectly creamy.
If you’re worried about the curry and the spice level, it really is not overpowering in this dish. Mr. Wishes doesn’t like spicy food at all and he loved this. I have a high tolerance for spice, but I didn’t think this dish was very spicy in the least. We had some friends stop over our house the night that I was making this and they agreed that this one was a winner after they taste-tested for me.
This one really stood out to us as a really great dinner that I will make over and over again. I served this with Thai Sticky Rice and Peanut Sauce (recipe coming soon)! Next time I think I will have a side of naan bread to go with it, as well. Enjoy!
