Green Chicken Curry

8 Reviews
100% would make this recipe again

The green colour of this curry is due to cilantro, whose somewhat lemony and pungent flavour can be a bit of a surprise the first time round. In case you are new to cilantro, start with a smaller quantity, and add more coconut milk to balance it.

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to prepare the sauce.

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. Purée the garlic, cilantro, ginger, jalapeño pepper, onion, lemon juice, cayenne, curry powder, cumin, ground coriander, and a bit of salt in a blender or food processor.
  2. Toss together the chicken pieces with about 1 or 2 tablespoons of the spice mixture then set aside.
  3. Heat the oil in a sauté pan to medium heat. Add the remaining spice mixture and cook, with stirring, about 10 min, or until the paste is lightly browned.
  4. Stir in the coconut milk, broth, sugar, and cinnamon. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer 10 min.
  5. Add the chicken pieces to the sauce and cook 3-4 min, with stirring, or until the chicken becomes opaque.
  6. Add the fruits to the sauce and cook an additional 2 min. Stir in the mint, adjust the seasoning, then serve in the warmed dishes.
