Thai chicken ginger peanut curry 52



View Profile

There is one recipe that beats all others in my house and it is this one. It is known as my signature curry and has, over the last decade, become a staple meal we simply can’t go without at least every few weeks. And, as it is easy to prepare, it sure is a winner! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.


  • 8 chicken thighs (about 1kg) – breast if you prefer
  • 1 jar of dipping salsa (depending on how spicy you want your curry is how hot a salsa you choose)
  • 1/4 cup of peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon crushed ginger


  • 1/2 bunch coriander, chopped
  • 1/4 cup of peanuts, crushed up into small chunks


  1. Chop the chicken into large chunks (not too small or it will disintegrate too much during cooking)
  2. Mix the salsa, peanut butter, lime juice, soy and ginger.
  3. Add to the chicken to a hot pan and cook until the chicken is sealed. Add the sauce and simmer.
  4. Serve on a bed of rice and garnish with a large handful of chopped coriander and a handful of crushed unsalted peanuts!

  1. Excuse me it is called a curry but I don’t see any in the recipe is it in the salsa, I haven’t cooked with salsa.

    • Doesn’t look very appetising. Are there noodles in there as well? Doesn’t seem as though all ingredients have been given to match with the photo …

    • I cook a few curries never with salsa, I use curry powder or spices like turmeric, cummin, chilli this just looks like a chicken peanut dish but as I haven’t cooked it, it may taste better than it looks.
