With every day the sun is setting earlier and earlier, and by this time next week, Asher will be 12. I wish she’d just stop growing up so quickly. She’s a little mini adult at this point and wise beyond her years. I finally spent some time this weekend trying to think of something amazing to do for her birthday. And you guys…I’m still stumped.

Do you have ideas? I feel like twelve is a special birthday and I’m sad I don’t get to spend it with her.

When Asher’s birthday rolls around, it means summer is coming to a close. I have a lot of mixed feelings about that. Mostly, I’m not ready to say goodbye to the longer days, fresh herbs from the garden, and wildflowers growing in the yard. It’s too soon, right?

Regardless of how I feel, we’ve got one full week of August left. I’m making it count by using all the summer produce I can. My plan? Use it all up before it’s gone Incorporate herbs, vegetables, and fruits into transitional summer-to-fall recipes as we start to slowly inch our way into a new season. I know it’s super hot most places right now, but the cool nights will come soon, and thankfully this recipe is here for that.

Here are the details.

This one is EASY…and quick.

I’ve been switching it up recently and using chicken thighs instead of breasts for some dishes. I’m loving the added flavor they give. That said, this recipe works with either a small boneless chicken thigh or chicken breast. Just take your pick.

Toss the chicken with turmeric and curry paste. For the curry paste, I use Thai Red Kitchen curry paste, which I’ve loved for years. It adds so much flavor and just the right amount of heat.

Now, pan sear the chicken until golden brown. Toss in a whole bunch of shallots, ginger, garlic, and zucchini to give this saucy curry some good flavor. Oh, and don’t forget the broccoli. I like to add that midway through cooking to help the broccoli keep its color.

For the vegetables, you can use whatever you have on hand…bell peppers, eggplant, corn, zucchini, they all work, so use what you love or what you have. Next time around, I’m going to use fresh bell peppers. That will be delicious.

Next, go for the coconut milk, a splash of fish sauce, and little honey. I’d recommend full fat for an extra creamy, very delicious curry. And if you don’t love fish sauce, TRY IT, it’s the best, promise. It smells funky, but if you can get past that, it’s going to make your coconut sauce better.

Simmer everything together until the chicken is tender and the kitchen smells amazing. And you’re maybe even getting some cozier vibes…sorry I can’t help myself, I love anything cozy.

Side note, I think if I write another cookbook, it should have the word cozy in the tittle. Yes? No?

Onto those noodles…my favorite part

Because noodles in an extra saucy coconut curry sauce are way too delicious. They’ll soak up all that sauce and flavor, and oh my gosh, you guys?

They are GOOD.

So, while the curry is simmering away, boil up some rice noodles.

I love using the super thin vermicelli rice noodles, but any rice noodle or noodle that you have on hand will be great. Just be sure to find a noodle you love and something that will hold up well in a good amount of curry sauce.

As soon as the curry is done, I spoon the sauce overtop the noodles, add the chicken, plus lots of fresh Thai basil from the garden and EAT. Dinner in under an hour and made using chicken, pantry staples, and fresh produce.

Couldn’t love this (healthy) braised chicken curry more. Hoping it makes for a perfect Monday night dinner for you all. Enjoy!

Stir in the curry paste and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the coconut milk, 1/2 cup water, the chicken, remaining curry paste, fish sauce, and honey. Stir to combine. Partially cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from the heat. Season to taste with salt.

    The flavours in this dish are heavenly! And this is super easy to put together. I used chicken broth instead of water and used a little more broth so the sauce would go farther. My hubby & I loved it and I will definitely make this again. Thank you for the fabulous recipe!

    1. 5 stars
      This was sooooooooo delicious. Made it on the stovetop in exactly thirty minutes, it was the perfect weeknight meal, so easy. Subbed green beans for broccoli and worked out great over rice noodles. Perfect cozy comfort food!

  2. 4 stars
    This was really comforting I loved it! My son liked it too, I had no broccoli so substituted it for red peppers will definitely make again

    1. Hey Charlene,
      Awesome! I am so glad to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks for making it! Have the best weekend! xTieghan

  3. This recipe has so much promise. But I went the slow cooker route and it was not good. I think too much of the flavors cooked out. I think it probably would have been lovely on the stove top. Just my two cents

  4. 5 stars
    Awesome! I made it exactly as described and it was a hit with everyone including my 5 and 8 year old children!

    1. Hey Sarah,
      Wonderful! Thanks a lot for making this recipe, I am so glad to hear that it was enjoyed! xxTieghan

  5. So excited to make this, do you think it would be tasty to use sweet potato instead of the squash/zucchini or should I stick with original recipe? 😋

    1. Hey Kaitlin,
      Sure, sweet potato would also be delicious! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    So good!! I made it last night. I couldn’t find thai basil, so I had to skip it. Looking forward to the leftovers this evening! I wish I had doubled the sauce! It’s fantastic!!

    For the ingredients listed it seriously lacks flavor. So disappointing!! I even did heaping amounts of the curry paste.

    1. Hey Rachel,
      So sorry you did not enjoy this recipe, was there anything you may have adjusted? Please let me know if I can help in anyway! xTieghan

    2. 4 stars
      Rachel, I’ve made this recipe several times, and when I’ve neglected being generous with the salt, I had a similar result. You should try again.

  8. 5 stars
    Really tasty. We all really liked it. I ended up slicing the chicken thighs before serving because it would have been hard to eat a soup like meal with whole thighs. Really good; like all of your recipes! Thanks!

    1. Hey Amy,
      Thanks so much for giving the recipe a go, I am thrilled that it was enjoyed! Have a great week:) xTieghan

    This was delicious! We just a little more fish sauce and used ramen noodles (all we had). Will try it with Rice noodles next time. this is a keeper!

  10. 5 stars
    I have made this recipe so many times now and it is truly one of our absolute favorites!!! The sauce is absolutely drool worthy, paired with the comforting taste of noodles and the flavor of the chicken just wow. Tieghan every single one of your recipes are delish!

  11. 5 stars
    This was delicious!
    I only put 1 large teaspoon tumeric, i was too chicken to add more, but next time i will do full tablespoon.
    Thanks Tieghan 💞😊

    1. Hey Andrea,
      Thank you so very much for giving the recipe a try, I am so glad it worked out for you! Happy New Year! xTieghan

    Made this last night, it was AMAZING! The flavors were so perfect and comforting. We used Lomein noodles, breasts, and substituted chicken broth for the water. Chicken was tender and flavors were so delish! Thanks for another keeper recipe!

  13. 5 stars
    Great recipe. I had to make do w/ the ingredients I had so I used red onion instead of shallot, lite coconut milk and served on top of black rice. I didn’t read through the comments so ended up putting in a squeeze of lime and zest in the pot. My friend pointed me to this site and all the recipes look fantastic.

  14. Tomorrow plan to use 1” cubes of butternut squash. At what point should I add them? Will they take longer to cook than other veggies? This dish will be a quarantine birthday meal for myself. Leftovers!

    1. Hey Sarah,
      I would go ahead and follow the recipe as is. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions. Happy Holidays! xTieghan

  15. Is there a preferred way of cooking this? IP, stove top or slow cooker? I could easily do any 3 and curious which is ideal. Huge fan of your recipes! Thanks!

    1. Hey Christine,
      I love to do this on the stove top! I hope you enjoy the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions. Happy Holidays! xTieghan

  16. Hi! So excited to try this tonight! My husband can’t have a ton of coconut milk. Could we do half oat milk/half coconut milk or is there something else you would suggest? Thanks so much!

    1. Hey Lindsey,
      Sure that would be fine to do! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions. Happy Holidays! xTieghan

    1. Hey Emma,
      Yes, totally fine! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

    1. Hey Molly,
      Yes, that is correct! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

    1. Hey Ashley,
      You can increase the amount of curry paste or add more red pepper flakes. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

    thank you so much for the recipe. It was easy to make and my husband gave it five out of five. He said if he’d been in a Thai restaurant he’d go back to that Thai restaurant 20 times over so thank you again

  18. 5 stars
    This sauce is so amazing. Instantly became one of my favorite HBH recipes!
    I made it in the slow cooker, and the chicken was falling apart by the time it was done, it was so perfect – and you’re right the thin rice noodles are so necessary! But seriously.. the sauce is perfection! I used reduced the fish sauce by half and replaced with soy sauce because it’s just a little too potent for me.

    THANK YOU FOR THIS DELIGHTFUL MEAL!

  19. This looks so good! I want to make this, but my boyfriend is allergic to fish. Is there something I can use to substitute the fish sauce?

    1. Hey Jade,
      I would just omit the fish sauce. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  20. 5 stars
    This is dee-lish😋😋. I steamed the broccoli separate because my husband does not like it and then tossed it in after I took out his serving. So good.

  21. 5 stars
    What a great recipe! The sauce is incredibly flavorful. I need up adding a bit more red chili paste and an extra dash of both tumeric and fish sauce.it will definitely go into my rotation.

  22. 5 stars
    GIRL! I just made this! And WOW! Amazing flavor. I haven’t even tried the chicken yet… but the sauce is unreal. I’m about to drink it. I’ve made many Thai recipes. This is hands down the best. AND the chicken looks AMAZING. Thanks

  23. 5 stars
    Um,,,,,amazing, the only change was to use zucchini and zoodle them in place of rice noodles. Simply because that is what I had. FANTASTIC!!!!

  24. 5 stars
    Soooo good! I had a bunch of Thai red curry paste sitting in my fridge from another recipe so this was a perfect way to use it up. I just cut up chicken breast instead of searing + cooking it later. I had never had curry with rice vermicelli before but it was delicious and a fun way to spice things up! The perfect weeknight dinner, my family loved it <3 another outstanding recipe tieghan!!

    1. Hey Rena,
      You could simply omit the lime:) I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  25. 4 stars
    This was a great recipe! My husband and I both really enjoyed this – the recipe was clear and easy to follow. I think this would taste great with some red bell peppers and will add that in next time 😊

  26. This. Was. So. Good. I am such a fan.

    I always have fallen back on rice, but now I am a convert to the rice noodles in curry-esque type recipes. It is so nice with the sauce you can slurp up. I am now not going back to thickening sauces with cornstarch and just using noodles. Thank you so much! Love your recipes the very most!

  27. 5 stars
    Another amazingly tasty recipe from half baked harvest. I am obsessed with all of her recipes which are easy and so flavorful. My daughter asked for her recipe book for her birthday and now we are both cooking her meals and sending each other photos and reviews. You will not be disappointed. I was slightly confused and unsure what to do with the lime juice/zest at the very end. Was it to be added to the pot or as a garnish on individual dishes?

    1. Hey Joanne,
      Thanks for your super kind message, I am so glad you have been enjoying the recipes! Sorry for the confusion, yes I like to add the lime as a garnish. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  28. 5 stars
    Sooooo good! Such a great way to sneak in veggies for my hubby who is not a veggie fan. He loved it! I’m a huge fan and typically not a commenter but since I cook mostly using your recipes I have to start letting you know how much our household loves your recipes!!!

  29. My kids and I loved this dish! The only thing I changed was the chicken size. I used boneless thighs which I cut into large chunks. It was more kid friendly this way. We couldn’t stop eating it and I’ll definitely make this again! Thank you!

  30. Hey Tieghan,
    Love the recipe! Just wondering, I thought I had coconut milk at home but looks like I only have oat, could that work here?
    Thanks!

    1. Hey Alisa,
      Yes oat milk is okay to use! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  31. 3 stars
    Was expecting this to be thicker + creamier like actual curry– it’s more like curry-flavored soup (suuuper thin and watery). Doesn’t taste bad, but also doesn’t have the same dynamic flavors of a classic thai curry 🙁

    1. Hi Christine! I am sorry about that. If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know! Otherwise, I hope you love other recipes of mine! xTieghan

    1. Hey Lauren,
      Sorry for the confusion, you can add the lime as a topping. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

    1. Hey Laur,
      I like to add it at the end as a garnish. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  32. Thanks for sharing, love every dish we make. I am planning to make tonight but realized I do not have rice noodles. Would you suggest ramen-style noodles, rice or garlic naan instead? Thanks!!

    1. Hey Ali,
      Honestly any long noodle would work here! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  33. 5 stars
    Love this dish. I’ve made it twice already! The sauce has warmth, but I personally like a little more spice in my curries and am wondering about recommendations for increasing the spice level? Both times I’ve made this I’ve emptied the whole red curry paste bottle and still found I wanted ~*more*~ spice. I did end up flavoring w/ tabasco the last time I made it just to nudge up the heat (which is probably sacrilegious) but would be open to any other suggestions!

    1. Hey Kristen,
      I am so glad you have been enjoying this recipe! I would recommend adding some chili flakes for extra heat. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  34. 5 stars
    This was delicious! It was easy to make. I could spoon this sauce into my mouth it’s so flavorful. I appreciate that it wasn’t overly coconutty (even though I love coconut). So comforting and will definitely make again! I’m never disappointed by your recipes!

  35. 5 stars
    Saucy Coconut curry over vegetables came our amazing. I added red pepper to the vegetables and also I added a hard fried egg on the top of the noodles. It was easy, tasty and simple dish. Thank you for the recipe.

  36. 4 stars
    Yummy! I made this in my crockpot and it turned out great. A few tips if you’re using crockpot – I would use 3/4 versus 1 cup broth. The curry was a little soupy despite the simmer. I added 2 tablespoons red curry paste to the crockpot before I started cooking and I could have added one more. I actually added some red peppers and asparagus spears too to up the veggies and it tastes great and is easy for meal planning.

  37. 5 stars
    This was soooo good!!! The only thing I’d do differently next time is cook the veggies for less time before adding the coconut milk, etc. SO GOOD!

  38. Looks great! for the slow cooker route, what type of broth do you use? And when do you add the rest of the curry paste?

    1. Hey Emily! I like to use low sodium chicken broth. The curry paste should be added with the broth. Recipe all fixed! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you!! xTieghan

    1. Hey Olivia,
      You just want to make sure the skillet is deep enough. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  39. We loved this. I halved the honey because I prefer savory flavors and may add cayenne pepper next time; but husband went back to the pot that only had the sauce left to drink more of it! Thanks.

  40. 3 stars
    I suggest fixing this recipe and add that you need a cup of broth! For us people that don’t know how to cook it’s confusing. Also, cooking this in the crockpot you have us add 1tbl spoon of curry paste to the chicken. When am I supposed to add the other 2-3Tbls?

    1. Hey Amy, the 1 cup of broth is listed within the slow cooker directions. Fixed the recipe to include the additional curry paste. So sorry about that! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you!! xTieghan

  41. I made this tonight, and I”m in love with this recipe! The sauce is so flavorful! Next time I will make sure I have some Thai basil on hand. Thanks for a great recipe to add to my comfort food list!

  42. 5 stars
    Delicious weeknight meal. Super early and very flavorful! I didn’t have curry paste so I used tandoori paste and sriracha.

  43. Dang girl! You did it again! This dish was so yummy, and creamy and flavorful. I could not get enough. It was one of the few meals I have made that everyone liked and didn’t complain about! Win win for me! I will definitely put this one on repeat. Keep me’ coming!

  44. I see you call for zest and juice from one lime but the only time the instructions call for it is to top it at the end. Do you use both the lime juice and zest at the end?

    1. Hey Jennifer,
      Sorry for the confusion, yes I garnish with the limes at the end. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

    1. Hey Stephanie,
      I like to garnish this dish with the limes, as stated in step 5. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

    Made this this weekend and it’s absolutely delicious! I did 3 tablespoons red curry paste as that’s all I had but will definitely go for more next time. I’ll certainly be making this again!

    Made it in slow cooker. Was naughty and threw noodles in at the end so needed to add water as they soaked all the sauce up. Was absolutely scrumptious though!

  48. I made this dish tonight for dinner and it was amazing! The red curry paste did not have as much heat as I expected so I added some sriracha at the end for just a little kick. All the flavors married so well together! I couldn’t find Thai basil anywhere so I used mint like you suggested. Such a good comfort food meal, would definitely make it again. Posted a picture of the food on Instagram, hope to get a thumbs up from you, Tieghan! 😊

  49. I made this recipe tonight for my husband and my 18-month old. They both loved it and it was easier to whip up than I thought. Prepping everything and measuring out each ingredient made it so much easier. Thank you for this tasty recipe!

  50. 5 stars
    I can’t wait to try this! Just double checking for the slow cooker version: the only curry paste used is to season the chicken. It isn’t listed for the other ingredients to add to the crockpot. I plan on doing the slow cooker version to get it started in the morning and have it ready by lunchtime (working from home).
    Thanks!

    1. I am so glad you like this one and I hope it turns out amazing for you, Smith!! Thank you so much for trying this! xTieghan

  51. Hey there,
    I saw this recipe a week ago and have been thinking about it since! Got all the ingredients and I’m planning to make this dish for dinner tomorrow.

    Wondering about the spicyness level (we have a 2yo and 4.5yo). Would you recommend parsing down the red curry paste, just in case, for kiddos who aren’t “spicy-tolerant” yet?
    TIA!

    1. Hey Cherie,
      The coconut milk in this recipe really mellows it out, but to be on the safe side I would reduce the curry paste. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  52. Hi!

    For the slow cooker version it says to add a cup of broth, but in the ingredients list I don’t see broth listed anywhere. Am I missing something?

    Thanks!

    1. Hey Samantha,
      Sorry for the confusion, just add a cup of chicken broth. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

    Hi from New Orleans! Love your recipes! Question: Would this work with bone-in chicken thighs and would it change the cook time? Thanks in advance!

    1. Hey Tatiana,
      Yes that would work, just add about 5-8 extra minutes of cooking time. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

    THIS WAS SO GOOD! It was so fresh tasting and not heavy, so it’s a perfect curry for summer. Flavors were perfect! I say this almost every time I cook one of your recipes, but it was one of my favorite things I’ve ever made!

    1. Haha love to hear that, Amanda! Thank you so much for trying this and so many others of mine! It makes me so happy to hear when you guys enjoy my recipes! xTieghan

    Loved this! Made two versions – one following the original recipe and one with halibut instead of chicken thighs. So delicious and comforting on a cold, rainy day here on PEI.

    1. I am really glad this turned out so well for you, Danielle! Thank you so much for trying this one!! xTieghan

  57. Hi, I’ve made several of your recipes, and they are always terrific!!!!
    Just a question, do you have a recipe for homemade red curry paste? Or would curry powder do just as well?
    Thanks!!

    1. Hey Michelle,
      So sorry I do not. I love to buy the Thai Kitchen brand of red curry paste. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

    I make some version of curry approximately once per week.. so when I saw this I knew I had to try it! Very similar to what I usually do, but I love the step of rubbing turmeric & curry paste directly on the chicken and searing first before it goes in the broth. Added a lot of depth of flavor for such a quick dish. I also always use coconut oil for cooking with coconut-based recipes. Why not? Extra coconut flavor!! And I never use salt. Only more and more fish sauce 🙂 Thanks, Tieghan!

    Made this curry for dinner tonight. So good and SO versatile. I imagine, although I followed the recipe this time, that you could substitute in whatever you have to hand…

    Since finding your blog a few months ago, I probably try a new one of your recipes every day, and have yet to be disappointed! This one was intimidating to me – I’ve never used curry paste before, but it was perfect!

    1. Thank you Hilary! I am really glad you decided to give this one a try and it turned out so well for you! xTieghan

  61. 5 stars
    So unbelievably tasty and delicious… and I can’t believe how quick it was to whip together. My husband can’t have coconut milk (allergy), so I made this as a treat for myself (normally I would substitute ingredients but I wanted to try the original first!) I will say he walked into the kitchen insanely jealous of my meal from pure smell alone. Happy to add this to my recipe book 😊

  62. I don’t care if you use the word cozy or crazy in the title of your next cookbook, just please write one! Your cookbooks have been at the top of my pandemic survival kit. Thank you!

  63. Made this last night , with a few changes. I baked tofu in Trader Joes Thai Red Curry Sauce in place of the chicken, I replaced the fish sauce with a mixture of coconut aminos ,salt and a splash of vinegar. I also lightly steamed the broccoli and put it in right before serving, I wanted it to stay bright green . Delish!!!!!

    1. Hey Cathy,
      That is personal preference, you can use skin on or off. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  64. OMG my inner 12 year old is giggling so hard at the “tittle” typo 🤣 Speaking of 12 year olds, Happy Birthday to Asher!!! 🎉✨🧡🥰

  65. Saucy coconut braised chicken – I plan on making this tomorrow. I have always had a question when it comes to chicken thighs and no one has actually given me an answer. Do you wash the thighs and remove some of the fat and the red veins which are always there. I have seen cooks just take it out of the package and start cooking it. It seems so strange to me not to remove some of the ugly veins and fat. I hope you can reply.

    1. Hey Laura,
      I usually do not do this step, your butcher should really have all of this cleaned up for you. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

    1. Hey Kim,
      I would use soy sauce in place of the fish sauce. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  66. Your next cookbook should be called cozy little kitchen 🙂 pairs well with Taylor Swift’s new album. Forget an apron, we just wear cardigans!

    1. Hey Sophie,
      I would do this in the instant pot on high pressure for 8 minutes. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

    I made it tonight for dinner. It was easy to follow the instructions and quick to make. I used all the veggies suggested, like corn, broccoli and zucchini and they came out perfect. However, my sauce did not have much flavor.I believe the salt is opt from the recipe,

    1. Hi Maria! I am glad this turned out well for you. Is there anything you changed about the recipe? I would love to help! xTieghan

    We had fresh corn which we used in place of broccoli. It was quite delicious and I highly recommend this dish. The entire family loved it. Another HBH winner!

  69. Can this be made ahead of time? Taking to a family for dinner. Looks so delicious 😋 If so can you tell me the best way to reheat it?

    1. Hey Betsy,
      I would do this on the stove top and then reheat on the stove top and cook the noodles when at your final destination. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  70. I just came to your site to find a chicken thigh recipe… how oddly perfect! Will be making and then will review, though I have no doubt itll be amazing. As for Asher’s 12th… hmm, I’m not sure.. but I agree that 12 is special!

    1. Hey Elsie,
      Yes that is fine to use. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  71. Not recipe related, but 12th birthday. Are there any nail salons opened back up in your area? My kids loved a special mani-pedi treat at that age! Or if you are staying home, how about dying a streak of her hair a bright color? Have fun and happy birthday to Asher!

    1. Such a good idea! I will have to check if any are open, but I don’t think so. I will look into this though! xTieghan
