Creamy Thai Basil Garlic Chicken - Profood Limited
  • Creamy Thai Basil Garlic Chicken

October 10, 2017

This recipe is for weekday nights when you can’t be bothered to cook, but still want something that is filling, creamy and feels like a warm hug on a cold rainy day. Similar to a Thai green curry, this dish is packed with flavour, a hint of spice and a sauce you just want to lick clean. The best part? Thanks to the time-saver that is Mekhala’s Organic Thai Basil Garlic Paste, it can be put together in just 20 minutes in one pan. You’re welcome!

Serves 2

400g chicken breast skin removed and sliced
10 cherry tomatoes
halved carrot, sliced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
small red chilli, chopped
4 tbsp Mekhala Organic Thai Basil Garlic Paste
100ml coconut milk (leave this out if you prefer a spicier, less rich stir-fry)
2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat a pan on a high heat and add olive oil. Add the chopped garlic and sliced chicken, and cook until the chicken starts to turn golden.
  2. Add the sliced carrot and Mekhala Thai Basil Garlic Paste; continue cooking until the carrot starts to soften. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook for another two minutes.
  3. Add the chilli to your taste preference, then turn off the heat. Stir in the coconut milk.
  4. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and serve with jasmine rice.
