Our fragrant Thai Green Chicken & Potato Curry is made with chicken thighs, waxy baby potatoes and a delicious homemade curry paste. Whilst the homemade paste is well worth making and absolutely amazing, it’s may be a little daunting. That being said, two tablespoons of shop bought paste, along with 4 garlic cloves and 2 teaspoons of grated ginger will do the trick!


  • 800 g Boneless Chicken Thighs, cut into 3 pieces
  • 4 Banana Shallots (or 2 Onions), finely chopped

  • 2 Thumb-sized pieces of Ginger, peeled
  • 2 Blades Lemongrass (keep one whole)

  • 3 Shallots
  • 3 tbsp Fish Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Palm Sugar (or Honey)
  • 1 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 5 Kaffir Lime Leaves
  • Juice of 2 Limes


  1. Blitz the curry paste ingredients in a bullet or processor, reserving one of the lemongrass blades.
  2. Into the frying pan add the chopped onions with a small glug of olive oil, and saute until soft.
  3. Season the chicken and add to the pan, then add the paste and stir well.
  4. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring on occasion.
  5. Add the coconut cream and bring to a gentle simmer.
  6. Cut the reserved piece of lemongrass length ways in half and add to the sauce.

Top Tip

We’ve used chicken thighs in this recipe, but you could easily replace with chicken breast if you prefer. Simply cut the chicken breasts into 4 and reduce the cooking time to 25 minutes.
