Thai Red Curry-Marinated Chicken

An intense Thai paste permeates this chicken just enough to give it a juicy texture and a flavorful taste.

Ingredients

5
cloves garlic
3
tablespoons chopped ginger
2
tablespoons dried chiles
1/2
tablespoon cumin
1/2
tablespoon coriander
2
tablespoons chopped lemongrass
3
shallots
1
squirt Sriracha
1
tablespoon honey
2
limes
Oil
5
boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Directions

  • 1 Juice limes. Add all ingredients to food processor. Blend until smooth. Scrape the sides often. It will take a good 5 or 10 minutes (depending on how good your food processor is) to make everything nice and smooth.
  • 2 Pour over chicken. Stab chicken with fork all over to help marinade soak in. Refrigerate for 2 -5 hours but no more.
  • 3 Grill or cook on a hot frying pan until fully cooked.
  • 4 Serve over rice or noodles.

Thai Curry-Marinated Chicken

As prepared by The Food in my Beard,

Thai red curry may seem intimidating, but it’s as easy as tossing a few ingredients into a food processor.


Having a few curry paste recipes under your belt is a huge plus in the kitchen, because they are so versatile! I have used curry pastes to spice up some rice, as pasta sauce, as a spread on a sandwich, and now as a flavorful marinade for chicken.

This Thai Red Curry Marinated Chicken came out great. A perfect level of spice and flavor, and a beautiful red color. It went great with some lime-dressed rice noodles.

All curry ingredients in the food processor

Chop up everything and add it to the food processor. Really. That’s it.

Pouring the curry sauce over the chicken

Pour this sauce over the chicken. If you want to taste the curry, be sure to try it BEFORE you mix it with the chicken. Watch out though, it’s spicy! I just put a dot on my finger to taste and make sure the flavors were right before dumping the whole thing onto the chicken.
