Thai Pumpkin Coconut Curry with Chicken

Don’t forget to try Thai Pumpkin Coconut Curry with Chicken. I had this dish at a local Thai restaurant and fell in love. The chef was kind enough to give me some guidance in how to make it. It is surprisingly easy. Goes nicely over basmati rice.


2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into small chunks
1 teaspoon of poultry seasoning
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 (2 pound or 900 gram) of sugar pumpkin -- peeled, seeded and cubed
1 tablespoon of butter
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 (1 inch) piece fresh ginger root, finely chopped
1 tablespoon of ground coriander
1 tablespoon of ground cumin
1 pinch of ground turmeric
1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
1/2 cup of canned coconut milk
1 1/2 cups of chicken broth
salt to taste

Directions to make Thai Pumpkin Coconut Curry with Chicken

  1. Season the chicken pieces with poultry seasoning and set aside. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
