Creamy Coconut Chicken Curry

Mild Coconut Curry Recipe

I love a curry, I love a takeaway curry and a homemade curry, I just enjoy eating them. I make a curry a few times a month for many reasons other than I could probably eat them everyday! A curry, especially if homemade is very nutritious for the body. From the protein and spices used, it is a meal that is a great source of vitamins and minerals and getting lots of nutrients into your body in one happy meal and very enjoyable dish. 

We particularly like a curry in our house when we are not feeling well or need an immune system pick me up. This is because I like to use garlic, ginger and turmeric in my curry sauces and these are the super foods that help fight illnesses and diseases.

I have a few curry recipes that I like to use, most of the time I just throw it in and just go by taste (it’s the Turkish in me!)

This particular curry is one I wanted to share because it is perfect for the whole family to enjoy, it is a mild spicy curry and is a great meal to get all those nutrients into your little ones tummies.

Both my children love my homemade curries and like I said before, I sometimes just add other ingredients in, like aubergines, bell peppers or even prawns instead of chicken.

So here it is my easy Creamy Coconut Chicken Curry recipe.

Preparation time: 10-15 minutes

Cooking Time: 35-40 minutes


(serves 4)

2tbsp Coconut Oil

3 skinless breast chicken, diced

1 White Onion, diced

4 Garlic Cloves, minced or finely chopped

2cm Fresh Ginger, minced or diced small

1tsp Mild Chilli Powder

1tsp Ground Turmeric

1tsp Ground Cumin

1tsp Ground Coriander

1/2tsp Sea Salt

1/4tsp Ground Black Peppercorn

400g Chopped Tinned Tomatoes

200g of Coconut Milk

Handful of fresh Parsley

Lime, cut into wedges for serving

Mild Curry Recipe


In a large saucepan add the coconut oil over a medium heat

Add the onions and cook for about 5 minutes until the onions are soft

Add the chicken and cook until chicken is white and cooked through

Add and combine in the garlic, fresh ginger and cook for a few minutes

Add the mild chilli powder, turmeric, cumin, coriander, salt and black pepper and stir through and cook for a few minutes

Pour in the tinned tomatoes and cook for a few minutes

Pour in the coconut milk and stir through bring to the boil and simmer

Cover the top of the saucepan with the lid and simmer for around 20 minutes until the curry sauce has thickened into a creamy consistency. Make sure to stir occasionally to stop the bottom from sticking, add a splash of hot water if the sauce starts to stick, stir and remove from the heat.

Serve with some fluffy basmati rice or naan bread, a squeeze of lime and garnish with fresh parsley and enjoy with the whole family.

    This is just making me drool! It looks so delicious, I’ll have to try it but with an alternative to tomatoes due to my allergy. The picture is amazing! I also love a good curry- my other half’s family is from Goa and they make the most amazing dishes. Enjoy!

      Oh no, one of my best friends is allergic to tomatoes so when I cook for her I just take out the tomatoes and add more of the other ingredients, in this case just add more coconut milk. Wow I bet the food they make tastes amazing xo
