Nyonya cuisine is a fusion of Malaysian, Chinese, and Indonesian foods offering a tasty combination of flavours that these nations have to offer. Our signature Garlic Coconut Paste provides the delicious base notes for pan-frying the chicken before adding our complex Nyonya Paste. Galangal, chilli, coriander and kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass are but few of th ingredients that are pounded together to create the paste, adding many levels of flavour to this dish. Our favourite chilli, coriander and coconut flake garnish tops this dish off with a little sweetness and heat.

Excellent, even the grandson liked it.

Annabel - May 19, 2019

Nice sauce but you don’t need both potatoes and rice - maybe I would miss out the rice next time!

Sara - May 18, 2019

Replaced the potato with peppers was delicious

Robin - May 18, 2019

Nice tasting sauce but feel it could benefit with some extra different veg to make it more interesting - or a side dish of veg perhaps?

Jo - May 17, 2019

Not keen too spicy

Love this dish. So beautiful

Sarah - May 15, 2019

This was delicious! So much nicer than the photo makes it look - we almost didn't try it because the photo looks so unappetising. Really glad we did though, this is now one of our favourites!

Hayley - May 13, 2019

April - May 09, 2019


Karen - May 09, 2019

Truly delicious, great tasting food made easy to cook

Sarah - May 09, 2019

This is one of my favourite Simply Cook recipes. We usually use a light/low fat coconut milk to make it a bit healthier. Really tasty and plenty enough to serve 3 people.

Karen - May 08, 2019

Quite nice better with lower fat coconut milk as not so greasy

Carol - May 08, 2019

Fantastic flavour, a definite repeat dish before too long.

lydia - May 07, 2019

Freaking delicious!

My husband said it was the best meal he had ever cooked

Karina - May 07, 2019

Tastes full of flavour, added some mushrooms and a pepper to up the veg content to make more of a full meal

joanna - May 07, 2019

My first Simply Cook recipe used. Very simple and tasty. I would not boil my potatoes and beans in salted water next time though.

Marie - May 07, 2019

Loved this

Sarah - May 07, 2019


Rebecca - May 06, 2019

Similar flavours to a green curry. I made it in my pressure cooker and it came out lovely.

David - May 06, 2019

Disappointed how many calories due to the coconut milk.

Nigel - May 06, 2019

Good but missing the wow factor

STEVEN - May 05, 2019

Good reminds me of massaman curry going to try this using white fish I used light coconut milk so sauce not that thick

Tatjana - May 05, 2019

A bit more spicy than I thought. Not suitable for small kids, as in my family. Had to cook for them something else, which takes extra time.

Michael - May 05, 2019

Not for me. Bland.

Dawn - May 05, 2019

Delicious! I was worried it was going to be too sweet while it was cooking, but the garnish added at the end gave it a real depth of flavour, and counteracted the sweetness. Will definitely be ordering again.

Christine - May 04, 2019

Yummy ????

Rebecca - May 03, 2019

As usual, love, love, love this one!! Winner in our household. We used coconut cream with a little milk to make this curry creamier.

Keely - May 02, 2019

Super tasty very much like a Thai Green curry
