Coconut milk, fresh lime, and curry powder give this quick stew, made with boneless chicken thighs, a decidedly Caribbean flavor. Feel free to sub in other favorite vegetables for the snap peas and bell pepper strips, and add a side of rice to go with the generous sauce. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Tina Ujlaki.


  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder (use Madras curry if you'd like it a little spicy)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (for chicken)
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper (for chicken)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 inch fresh ginger (1 inch is about 1 Tbsp. minced)
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 3 green onions
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 can unsweetened coconut milk (13.5 oz. per can, shaken)
  • 1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar (packed)
  • 6 ounces sugar snap peas
  • salt (optional, for serving)
  • pepper (optional, for serving)
  • 1/2 cup cilantro (leaves and tender stems)
  • Did you make this?

    Excellent recipe! I followed the recipe and we sprinkled crushed red chili peppers on individual servings according to taste. Will make this again.

    I used pineapple instead of bell pepper and didn't use snow peas. Delicious!

    It was really good! We did not have the snow peas but it still tasted wonderful. Next time I hope to have the snow peas and maybe add a small ammount of chickpeas to the dish as well. The lime I used was a little small so maybe some more lime zest and juice too.

    Excellent curry. Added some hot peppers for a bit more spice.

    Made exactly as directed minus the onion (due to preferences). Taste was great, only suggestion is to also add some spice (jalapeños or chilli peppers). Trimming the chicken was also very tedious and time consuming. Would definitely make again

    Not the best Thai curry I've had but not bad either. Pretty happy with how it turned out. Would likely make it again.

    Absolutely delicious! Made with my boyfriend, came out a rich plate of savory and sweet, with a warming note from the ginger. Serve with basmati or jasmine rice as a great side dish!
