Quick Chicken Curry Recipe

Chicken Curry

Quick Chicken Curry Recipe Serves 4

While searching for a quick and simple curry recipe, I came across a chicken curry recipe that would become my “go-to”. It’s quick, it’s simple and it’s super delicious. This goes great with our creamy Coconut Rice, naan or our fantastic Roti Canai bread.


  • 2tbs sunflower oil
  • 2 large chicken breasts, diced
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 or 2 green chilies de-seeded (or not…if you’re brave!) and finely chopped
  • 2tsp grated ginger
  • 2 or 3 spoons of curry paste – we use Tikka curry paste
  • 1 400g can of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 400ml can of coconut milk**
  • 2tbs of peanut butter
  • Optional coriander to garnish.
  • Also optional, yogurt to dollop on top.



  1. Dice chicken into 3cm chunks. Pop the chunks into a ziplock bag and add the curry paste. mix together and marinate while you prep the other ingredients.
  2. Heat oil in a nice, big pan.
  3. Once the oil is hot, add the marinated chicken, onion, garlic and chilies. cook until chicken is browned and the onions softened. About 5 minutes or so should do.
  4. Add in the can of tomatoes, coconut milk, and the peanut butter, at this point reduce the heat to a simmer, place the lid on your pan and allow to cook for around 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  5. After about an hour, have a taste and add salt if necessary.
  6. Optional: Stir through the coriander.
  7. Serve with fluffy rice or, even better, Roti bread. Recipe for the Roti can be found here.


**If you’re not a fan of coconut in your curry, leave it out, once the curry has simmered for about an hour, just before serving, stir in some cooking cream to taste.
