If you are looking for a quick dinner idea that is packed with lots of flavor, then go ahead and give this one a try and let me know what you think!
Although a lot of chicken curry recipes call for chicken thighs, I prefer to use boneless, skinless chicken breast to make mine. This is just a personal preference since I buy a lot of chicken breast and usually have some waiting in my freezer.

Curry Chicken Dinner Ingredients
- Coconut cream
- coconut milk (scoop the thick cream from top of can)
- Crushed tomatoes
*Saving Dollars and Sense Tip: I don’t saute my chicken. I just throw it all into the pot because I am usually on a time crunch. I don’t think it really hurts the meal at all skipping the first step in this recipe.
How to Make Curry Chicken
Saute chicken in one tablespoon of oil for 1-2 minutes.
Like I mentioned above, you can totally skip this part if you want to.
Add all of the remaining ingredients into your pot.
Add the can of crushed tomatoes.
Add the coconut milk & coconut cream to the pot.
Don’t forget to add all of the spices!!
Set manual pressure time for 25 minutes.
Allow for a quick release of pressure, stir and serve.
Serve over rice if you’d like. We aren’t big rice eaters, so we usually eat this curry recipe as a chicken curry soup instead.
Makes 6 servings.
