When I invite family over for dinner, they seem to always request one of three dishes. This is one of them. The other two are ribs and gnocchi.

I think it’s because each of those dishes are robust, delicious and comforting.

The real standout of this dish is the curry sauce. I have always been a bread dipper. And even though there are noodles involved, you will always see me with a fistful of bread or naan that I dip in the sauce between mouthfuls of chicken and noodles.

How to make chicken curry noodle


Get a deep sauté pan.

Step one

Gather the ingredients – We have fish sauce, curry paste, cut up chicken thighs, garlic paste, coconut cream, coconut milk and chicken broth.

Step two

Turn the heat under the deep sauté pan to medium and once the pan heats up, add 2 tablespoons olive oil.

Step three

Once the oil has heated up, add the chicken and stand over it while it cooks, 2 minutes each side for a total of 6 minutes.

It will almost be fully cooked through, but not quite. Remove from pan as you will use that pan for the curry.

Step four

Fill a sauce pan with water, 2 – 3 inches deep and set it to boil.

Step five

Add a heaping 1/2 cup of yellow curry paste to the same pan and also add 1 can of coconut cream as well as 1/2 can of coconut milk, 2 tablespoons fish sauce, 2 teaspoons garlic paste and 2 teaspoons ginger paste.

Bring the mixture to a boil and turn it down to a simmer.

Step six

By now, the water is boiling so lightly salt it and add a 6 ounce package of chow mein noodles. They only take 5 minutes so set your timer.

Step seven

Place the chicken in the curry sauce and a few handfuls of spinach and let it simmer as the noodles cook.

Step eight

Drain the noodles and place them in the pan with the chicken curry.

All done!

  1. This looks so delicious! I still have never purchased fish sauce and always sub other things in my curries but I think I need to give it a try!

    1. I really like it Emily, I was skeptical of using it until I did and now I’d always use it, unless I were cooking for a vegetarian!

  2. Love your title! I think I might love the garlic paste and ginger paste just as much. This sounds delicious.

  3. My mouth is currently watering. I think these might be my new adult version of chicken soup! Pass on over a bowl please!

  4. This is my kind of food! I may take your advice and make it when I’m home alone 😉

  5. But I’m definitely sharing!

    Going gluten free meant we had to stop going to our local hole in the wall Thai place… and he misses it. (Well, so do I, but he’s the one giving things up for my sake, so…) And I’ve been thinking I need to learn how to cook (adapted) Thai food. (Probably rice noodles here, for instance…)

    I put a Thai curry in front of him, he’ll be so happy!

  6. I see you’ve got our number because we are ALL about the curry in this household! Can’t wait to give this one a try!

  7. Love the curry flavor so much and combined with the noodles is so so good. My husband and step son would be all over this dish!

  8. I love curry and this one looks fabulous! And, don’t tell the family, but at Christmas time I hide some of those buckeye cookies just to nibble on. I mean, who wouldn’t do that? lol

  9. This is SUCH a great noodle and curry dish. The flavor of the curry sauce is crazy good and the noodles are not your average semolina. They’re somethin’ special for sure!

  10. Oh, Elaine! You are too funny! I sat and said aloud, “I wonder where the devious comes in?” Sure enough, you explained it. Lol! This noodle soup sounds really good. Curry is not usually a spice that we cook with, but you make it sound so tasty. We might have to give it another try. 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Kimberly! I can be rather calculating when it comes to food. Christopher knows NOT to take the biggest muffin and so forth. Though I can be giving too. 😉

    1. Hehe Amy! Thanks. Luckily my hubby doesn’t eat a lot of the things I would normally hide, so I don’t have to – like cookies and chocolate!
