Green Chicken Curry
A gluten-free and dairy-free Thai chicken curry that is full of rich flavor. Chicken and vegetables in a creamy coconut curry sauce. Healthy, delicious, and made in less than 30 minutes!
Bring on the soup season!
It’s starting to get cold (who am I kidding? It’s 95 degrees today in Arizona!). Well, for my friends in other states that aren’t surrounded by cactus, it might be getting a little nippy.
Soups are the perfect Fall dinner and they make the perfect leftovers. When I am lazy and don’t want to even think about making myself something for lunch, I go for soup. It’s full of lean protein, vegetables, and satisfies my hungry tummy.
Months ago, I shared my Chicken Sweet Potato Curry Recipe and it has become one of my most popular dinner recipes. https://www.modernhoney.com/chicken-sweet-potato-curry/ Since the Chicken Sweet Potato Curry uses a red curry paste, one of my best friends begged me to make a Green Curry recipe as well.
I played in the kitchen for a few hours and came up with these Green Monster Chicken Curry Bowls. My kids literally licked their bowls clean. My husband complained (in the nicest way possible) that there weren’t seconds for him to eat. We definitely had a winner on our hands!
These Thai Green Curry Bowls are perfect for a weeknight. It can be made in less than 30 minutes! It’s also completely gluten-free and dairy-free for all of my celiac friends. This can also be made into a yellow curry.

Where to find Green Curry Ingredients:
I receive many phone calls, text messages, Instagram and Facebook messages from my readers, who are running around a grocery store in a panic, trying to find the unique ingredients from recipes on Modern Honey. I thought I would help you out by providing a visual, so you know what you are looking for once you hit the store. I am always happy to help, so if you are running through the grocery store, message me and I will be your personal grocery assistant. 🙂
The chili garlic sauce can be readily found in most grocery stores. Red and Green Curry Paste are the most popular curry pastes found at the store. I found this particular one at Whole Foods and Sprouts. Thai Green Curry Bowls call for canned coconut milk. You can also use unsweetened Coconut Cream which is thicker and richer. It’s amazing! I found this one at Trader Joe’s for $1.49.
