Chicken Coconut Stew

Comfort food at its best!

This mildly spiced, creamy, delicate chicken stew with the simplest flavours is your doorway to classic food that’s beyond comforting!

Boneless chicken thighs, marinated in salt and pepper, simmer cooked in a simple yet rich coconut gravy and served with some fluffy buttered bread slices

As comforting as it gets, this bowl of utter goodness is packed with flavor, deliciousness and follows a super simple recipe. Let’s dive into it:

You’ll need:

3 medium boneless chicken thighs – I recommend not using chicken breast for this recipe as it tends to get very hard

200 ml Coconut milk

3 tbsp coconut oil

1 tbsp olive oil

5-6 curry leaves

1 green chilly sliced

1 dry red chilly sliced

1 medium yellow onion finely chopped

1 medium tomato finely chopped

1 tsp ginger garlic paste

1 tsp turmeric powder, Salt and pepper to taste


Start by marinating the chicken in salt and pepper for atleast 30 mins

In a pan, heat the coconut oil and olive oil on medium flame. Once hot, add the finely chopped onion, saute for 3-4 mins till tender and add the ginger garlic paste

Saute for about a minute and add in the marinated chicken, mix well and cover cook on medium low for 5-6 mins or till the chicken releases its juices

Now add the chopped tomatoes, curry leaves, turmeric, salt and pepper. Mix well and cover cook on medium low for 3-4 mins or till the tomatoes turn mushy

Now add coconut milk and stir well

Add coconut milk

Turn the flame to low, and cover cook for 10-15 mins till the oil surfaces

Turn the heat off and add a dash of lemon juice. Serve hot!

Enjoy with a side of rice or fluffy bread slices

Enjoy steaming hot
