This Yellow Thai Curry Chicken recipe is one of the easiest Thai recipe you´ll ever try! It´s not only easy to prepare, but also very delicious and it will only take you 20 minutes to prepare.
There is a Thai restaurant near me and if I don´t have time to cook or need some food really quick. I go there and every time I order Yellow Thai Curry Chicken.
Last time I was thinking “Why don´t I try cooking same?” It took me several attempts to have this delicious and almost the same flavour as this restaurant provides. Almost…Obviously, I still cannot beat the Thai cook 😉
Thai food really isn’t very complicated. I especially love all coconut curries. With a few ingredients you can have quality Thai restaurant meals right in your home, made by you.
Even though I haven´t asked the Thai cook for the recipe, I tried this Yellow Thai Curry Chicken myself and I like it.
There are a few ingredients you´ll need to ensure you get the most flavour out of this curry meal: coconut milk, Thai yellow curry paste, kurkuma, lemon grass and veggies. If you like the meaty version, add chicken like I did in this recipe.
You can also use other ingredients, like tofu, shrimps, or duck. Or you can simply have it vegetarian 🙂
This dish is so great, you literally only need about 20 minutes to make . The flavours are so delicious, a creamy sauce which packs some heat from the curry paste, the more curry paste the better, it’s really not that spicy. I used 2 tbsp in this recipe and it flavoured the dish nicely giving it just a bit of a spicy kick.

7 reasons why chicken is healthy to eat
It is full of essential nutrients that your body needs. It carries fewer unhealthy qualities that other meats have. A boneless, skinless chicken breast is an excellent low-fat food that can be prepared in a variety of ways.
Chicken is one of the best non-vegetarian sources of protein. It is lean meat, that means it contains more amount of proteins and less amount of fat. A 100g serving of roasted chicken contains 31g of protein, making it great for those who want to bulk up and build muscles.
A chicken breast is rather low in saturated fat compared to many protein alternatives, especially when the skin is removed. By substituting this poultry for higher-fat cuts of meat, you will lower your risk of developing heart disease by reducing your “bad” cholesterol. This will also help you maintain a healthy weight. Grilling, broiling and baking are great cooking methods to keep the fat content at its lowest.
Prevents bone health
This poultry is rich in several minerals like phosphorus and calcium. These minerals help to keep bones in good condition. Also, it has selenium which has been known to cut the risk of arthritis.
The bone broth in chicken soup contains collagen, which helps boost your immune system, in addition to amino acids and nutrients that help prevent inflammation.
This meat has two nutrients that are great for reducing stress – Tryptophan and Vitamin B5. Both of them have a calming effect, and this makes it an excellent option after a stressful day. If you’re feeling depressed, eating some poultry will increase the serotonin levels in your brain, enhance your mood and blasting stress.

About Cheddar Cheese
In past, Cheddar cheese was only made in England. Nowadays, many countries all over the world manufacture the cheese. Any cheese producing company can label the cheese as ‘Cheddar’ since it is not protected like other cheese names or brands.
Cheddar cheese is made from cow’s milk. It is a hard and natural cheese that has a slightly crumbly and smooth texture. The colour generally ranges from white to pale yellow. However, some may have a manually added yellow-orange colour. This is what we typically find in the grocery stores.
The cheese can be used in salads, omelets, soups, and so on. Some people avoid eating cheese not only because of their dietary restrictions but also because it contains lot of fat. Therefore, eat it in moderation because about 30g of cheese contains 114 calories and 9 grams of fat. Choose sharp or extra-sharp cheddar since the stronger flavour allows you to eat less cheese.

Garbanzo Beans contain huge amount of protein, a half a cup has about 17 grams of dietary fibre and 19 grams of protein.
Even though legumes are known for their fiber, and fiber found in garbanzo beans actually supports digestive tract function.

No food macronutrients are more valuable for blood sugar regulation than fiber and protein. These two nutrients have an amazing ability to help stabilize the flow of food through our digestive tract and prevent the breakdown of food from taking place too quickly or too slowly.
Cooking and soaking chickpeas
You can buy garbanzo beans in a can but I´m aware that if cooked yourself they are much better and tastier. If you buy raw chickpeas, check the production date on the package, because if they are too old they simply won’t soften no matter how long they soak or cook.
Soak the garbanzo beans overnight. If you like, add baking soda when soaking chickpeas, it prevents the skin from slipping off during the cooking process.
Cook them for around 1 – 2 hours until nicely soft but not falling apart. Add a pinch of turmeric to the water as they cook. Don’t use salt – it toughens the skin. When cooked, they will have a rather creamy texture.

In general it is a good source of sinigrin. Sinigrin supports cancer prevention. The sinigrin has unique cancer preventive properties with respect to bladder cancer, colon cancer, and prostate cancer.
The uniqueness of cabbage in cancer prevention is due to the three different types of nutrient richness found in this widely enjoyed food. These are antioxidant richness, anti-inflammatory richness, and richness in glucosinolates.
- Antioxidant Richness – The cabbage is excellent source of vitamin C and a very good source of manganese. Polyphenols are the primary factor in cabbage’s overall antioxidant capacity. Half cup provides 50 milligrams of polyphenols.The antioxidant richness of this veggies is partly responsible for its cancer prevention benefits.
- Anti-inflammatory Richness – Without sufficient intake of anti-inflammatory nutrients, our inflammatory system can be in danger, and we can experience the problem of chronic inflammation. Above mentioned polyphenol provides anti-inflammatory benefits.
