Thai Chicken Curry with Eggplant and Mango
with quinoa

Active: 25 minTotal: 25 min

Nothing says bold flavor like a Thai curry, and we think you'll love this savory combination with a hint of sweetness from fresh mango. We serve it over quinoa as a healthier alternative to classic rice.
Smarts: The spice in this curry can be easily adapted - use a mild curry paste or kick up the heat with Sriracha or red pepper flakes.



Thai Chicken Curry with Eggplant and Mango:
  • Chicken breasts - 1 lb, 1" / 2.5 cm cubes
  • Eggplants - 1, 1" / 2.5 cm cubes
  • Onions - 1/2, chopped
  • Bell peppers, red - 1, thinly sliced
  • Mangos - 1/2, chopped

Probably could have used more coconut milk

Delicious. Did wish there was more sauce - would definitely add in more milk and curry paste next time.

I thought this was good, but would slice the chicken thinner next time and probably just use coconut milk instead of both coconut milk and chicken broth. Also added some arrowroot powder at the end to thicken up the sauce.

I think there just wasnt enough curry paste. Very little sauce w this one. Had a rough time w the tofu too.... It just didn't crisp on the outside. Would put it in pan before eggplant or maybe broil it.

Too much eggplant - stick with one. More curry paste + more mangoe is needed. Also- Thai basil would have been better than the sweet basil I used.

Very good, but think amount of curry paste is too low. I ended up adding another 3-4 more tablespoons. Added left over cauliflower rice from other dish rounded it out well. I used whole can of cauliflower. 1 eggplant and 1 bellpepper 1 is more than enough, even 1/2 of each would have been fine. Ended up having to use two pans. Mango was spot on. :)
