Forget ordering takeout. It’s easier than you think to make this classic Thai dish at home in your slow cooker. Red curry paste and coconut milk give this dish its uniquely complex flavor.

Ingredients

2
cups canned unsweetened coconut milk, stirred (to combine the cream and water)(from two 14-oz cans)
2
tablespoons packed brown sugar
2
to 3 tablespoons Thai red curry paste
2
tablespoons fish sauce
4
boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 1 lb), cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
4
cups broccoli florets (about 10 oz)
1
medium red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1
serrano chile, seeded, finely chopped
2
tablespoons cornstarch
2
tablespoons water
1
tablespoon lime juice
1/3
cup loosely packed Thai or Italian basil leaves, thinly sliced
Steamed white or jasmine rice, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Spray 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In slow cooker, beat coconut milk, brown sugar, curry paste and fish sauce with whisk until smooth. Add chicken, broccoli, bell pepper and serrano chile to slow cooker; stir to coat. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 2 hours 45 minutes to 3 hours 30 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut (at least 165°F).
  • 2 Use slotted spoon to transfer chicken and vegetables to serving bowl; keep warm.
  • 3 Increase to High heat setting. In small bowl, beat cornstarch and water with whisk until smooth. Beat cornstarch mixture into sauce. Cover; cook about 15 minutes or until thickened. Add lime juice and basil; pour over chicken and vegetables.
  • 4 Serve with steamed white or jasmine rice.

Tips  

We tested this recipe with Thai Kitchen™ red curry paste. It’s worth noting, though, that different brands come with different heat levels, so we recommend using less or more, depending on the brand’s heat level and your own preferences.

Canned coconut milk (not to be confused with cream of coconut) can sometimes separate into a thicker cream and a thin more watery liquid in the can. If you find that’s the case, just stir the two together until they are combined, and proceed with the recipe.

Thai basil has a bolder, more licorice flavor than its sweet basil counterpart, although both can be successfully used in this recipe.
