Thai Chicken & Prawn Curry Potjie

This is not a typical potjie recipe in that it is relatively quick to prepare and cook, so defies the usual kuier-ing that takes place round a potjie. That’s not to say you can’t still relax and enjoy the time with your mates!

Cooking Time

55 minutes


    30 - 50 ml vegetable oil
    1 pack chicken thighs
    1 pack Food Lover’s Signature Vannamei Prawns, defrosted
    15 – 20 ml Thai Red Curry Paste
    250 ml chicken stock
    15 ml brown sugar
    15 ml fish sauce
    1 can Food Lover’s Coconut Milk
    500 ml cut-up assorted vegetables (sugar snap peas, carrots, peppers, frozen peas, mini-corn, etc)


    Heat oil in potjie.
    Add chicken thighs and cook for about 15 minutes, turning regularly so they don’t burn.
    Add curry paste; fry for a couple of minutes until fragrant.
    Add chicken stock and bring to a simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes.
    Add vegetables, prawns and coconut milk; allow to cook until vegetables are tender and prawns cooked through, about 10 minutes depending on heat of your coals.
    Stir in brown sugar and fish sauce until well blended. If you want a more saucy dish, you can add more coconut milk. If you want more heat, add a sprinkle of freshly sliced red chilli. Serve immediately.
