  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 chicken breasts cubed
  • 12 oz shiitake mushrooms sliced
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 14 oz coconut milk 1 can
  • 3 tbsp red curry paste
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper or to taste
  • parsley or cilantro, to garnish


  • Warm the butter and oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the chicken, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the mushrooms, onion, and garlic and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the coconut milk and red curry paste. Once bubbling, reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened to your liking. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve over rice and garnish with chopped parsley.


Curry paste can be found in little jars in the international food aisle of your grocery store.
I used red curry paste for this recipe, but green curry paste would work as well.

You can make this recipe vegetarian by substituting the chicken for tofu or doubling the amount of mushrooms.
