Honesty hour: this is my FIRST time making a homemade red curry sauce. Say what? I know, I know.
Michael and I shop at Costco and they have a delicious frozen curry that I always bought, but since we haven’t been making our usual Costco runs I was forced to make my own.
I’d say it was a darn good thing because this easy, 30 Minute Thai Chicken Curry and Vegetable recipe is heaven on earth.
The whole meal came together in 30 minutes, including prep!
If you’re an OG follower, you know how big of a proponent I am for frozen veggies. It’s one of my favorite healthy eating tips when you’re on a budget.

For this recipe, I used an “Asian blend” of frozen vegetables. The frozen vegetable blend included broccoli, carrots, snap peas, and water chestnuts. Feel free to add any vegetables of your choosing! I would have loved to see some baby corn, mushrooms, and bell peppers in the mixture as well. YUM.
Using frozen veggies was a big time-saving strategy since I was able to cook them on the stove while my red curry sauce simmered.
I’m all about multi-tasking, what can I say?
Another way I cut back on time for this healthy chicken curry recipe was by baking the chicken in the oven while the red curry sauce was simmering.
I love oven-baked chicken because all you have to do is line a baking sheet with foil, coat your chicken with a little olive oil, season as you wish, and bake it for 25 minutes!
Oven-baked chicken is pretty fool-proof. We love that in the Moye house. HA.
Once the chicken finished baking, I thinly sliced it and added it to the curry sauce to let it soak up all the yummy spices and flavor!
For this Healthy Thai Chicken Curry and Vegetables recipe you will need:
- Coconut Milk
- Cashew Milk
- Red Curry Paste
- Soy Sauce
- Coconut Sugar (To neutralize the acidity and brighten the flavor)
- Cayenne (optional)
What I especially love about this simple 6 ingredient red curry recipe is how versatile and customizable it is!
- Not a fan of cashew milk? Sub it for almond milk or vegetable stock.
- Going gluten-free? Swap out the soy sauce for coconut aminos or tamari.
- Vegan or vegetarian? Ditch the chicken and choose your favorite protein instead.
Recipes are just rough guides in my opinion (unless it’s baking — that’s a science!). It’s always important to give things your own special flare.
