Thai Yellow Curry is easy to make at home in only 20 minutes! This recipe is made with chicken, but extra veggies can be swapped in for a vegetarian curry. The sauce is so delicious, you’ll feel like you’re eating at your favorite Thai restaurant!
Are you constantly dreaming that Thai food takeout will magically appear in your kitchen for dinner? No, just me? Either way, this recipe for Thai Yellow Curry will give you that delicious, straight-from-your-favorite-Thai-restaurant taste without ever leaving your kitchen! The best news is, it’s made in just 20 minutes!
For a few years now, I’ve been working on perfecting my favorite Thai recipes at home. I successfully created amazing versions of my favorite noodle dishes, Spicy Vegetable Pad Thai and Drunken Noodles. Now it was time to recreate my favorite curry dish!
Yellow Thai Curry is slightly sweet and mild in flavor, but can be kicked up to your desired spice level with the addition of Thai chilies. I use Mae Mae Ploy Yellow Curry Paste, which can be found at some grocery stores, Asian markets or online. I purchase a large container of it, as it will keep in the fridge sealed and covered for up to 2 years.
Out of all the pre-made curry pastes I’ve tried, this one definitely has the best flavor and the most similar taste to what you’d get at a Thai restaurant. It’s also vegan and gluten free, so it’s great for making vegan and vegetarian curries! Using a pre-made curry paste makes this recipe so simple and easy to toss together any night of the week!
Learn how to make THE BEST Drunken Noodles with chicken! This homemade recipe for the spicy Thai restaurant favorite is easy to make in just 20 minutes!
I was originally inspired to make this dish after my favorite Thai restaurant in San Diego closed. I was a loyal customer and totally addicted to their Drunken Noodles, Yellow Curry and Pan Fried Roti Bread!
Since they closed their doors a few years ago, I’ve been perfecting my own versions of their classic Thai recipes. After dozens of recreations of their Drunken Noodles, I’ve finally made the perfect recipe for Drunken Noodles!
While the recipe is quite simple, getting the perfect Drunken Noodles sauce is really the key to this noodle dish. The sauce is so flavorful and slightly spicy. In this recipe, I’ll share how to adjust the spice to your preference!
If you’ve been looking for the best drunken noodles recipe, you just found it! And luckily, it’s made in less time than it will take you to order Thai food on an app!
Whenever we go out for dinner, there’s an 8 out of 10 chance I’m going to try to convince Kurt to go to Koon Thai. It’s my favorite Thai restaurant and one of my overall favorite restaurants in San Diego!
They make the most delicious pan fried roti bread, curries and noodle dishes. They also make the best Tom Kha soup I’ve ever had! After our last visit, I decided it was time to try making my own Tom Kha soup at home.
What is Tom Kha Soup?
Tom Kha soup is a Thai coconut soup. It’s made with coconut milk, lemongrass, Thai chili peppers, cilantro, mushrooms, fish sauce and lime juice. While it’s typically made with chicken, you can also find versions with shrimp, pork or tofu.
What is the difference between Tom Kha and Tom Yum Soup?
Tom Yum Soup is made with a base of boiled meat, such as shrimp or pork, water and herbs. It is sour and spicy in flavor. Tom Kha Soup is made with a coconut milk base and is more sweet and spicy in flavor, than sour.
Since pressure cooking is all the rage these days, I wanted to incorporate my favorite sauce into a new pressure cooker recipe.
I used the Crock-Pot® Express Crock Multi-Cooker to pressure cook chicken breasts in the peanut sauce, then tossed the chicken with rice noodles. Easy as that, I had one delicious new recipe for dinner!

I’m a huge fan of Thai food! I could seriously eat take-out Thai 5 nights a week! I’m lucky because we have some amazing Thai restaurants in San Diego. Koon Thai, Bahn Thai and Kanda Thai are some of my favorites, but sometimes it’s nice to be able to make your favorite take-out food at home for fraction of the price and made in less time than it would take to drive and pick up your take-out.

We’re on the brink of moving into our new house (OMG SO EXCITED!) and if you want to catch a behind-the-scenes look at our fixer upper, check out my Instagram story, I’m always updating it with the latest changes on the house!
One of the things that excites me so much about the new neighborhood we’ll be living in is that there’s a brand new Asian market just about 2 miles away and it’s huge! I decided to stop by a couple of weeks ago before heading over to the new house for a meeting with our contractor and pick up some red and green curry paste.
Don’t worry though, if you don’t have an Asian market near you, you can still find red and green curry paste in the Asian section of your local grocery store, or you can order the same Green Currry Paste that I found at my local Asian market on Amazon.
Thai peanut sauce, sautéed vegetables and pineapple top this quick and easy rice bowl recipe, that’s both vegetarian and gluten free.
I have a confession to make, when it comes to cooking rice, I overshoot it every time by about 2-4 cups. I’m not sure what my deal is, I guess I just really have a phobia of running out of cooked rice!
But today that leftover cooked rice, along with some leftover Thai Peanut Sauce, came in very handy to make this epic new recipe!
Gluten free cashew chicken is marinated in a delicious Thai chili sauce, then coated in crushed cashews & baked into sweet, spicy, crunchy chicken bites!
While visiting my brother in Washington D.C. about a month ago, he put in a request for a couple of new recipes.
One of those requests was for a new recipe using Trader Joe’s Cashew Meal. He and his girlfriend Liz love using the cashew meal in another recipe they found online and wanted a new recipe that incorporated the ingredient.
Massaman Curry Crock Pot Chicken is an easy meal to toss in the slow cooker in the morning and serve over rice for dinner!
A big thank you goes out to my brother, Tyler Bond, for inspiring me to make this recipe! I tried Massaman Curry for the first time when he ordered Thai take out while I was visiting him in Washington DC in November.

Did you know that today is “National Walnut Day”? To celebrate I made this Thai chicken salad with walnuts and my favorite Thai Peanut Sauce!

Roti Bread is covered in slow cooked Thai Peanut Pulled Pork, then grilled & topped with bean sprouts, carrots & cilantro in this unique Thai Pizza recipe!
It’s Friday, the perfect time to set sail into the weekend with something totally new, totally unique and totally scrumptious!
After making homemade roti bread this week to dip into my yummy Curry Potato and Mushroom Soup, I knew I had to find an innovative and awesome use for the leftover bread!
My mind immediately went to pizza because well… I LOVE pizza!
Since my inspiration for the Roti Bread came from my favorite Thai restaurant I thought, Thai Pizza! But this couldn’t just be a traditional Thai Chicken Pizza like everyone else does, oh no, I had to put my own twist on it!
I decided to slow cook a pork shoulder with my delicious Thai Peanut Sauce, shred the pork then place it on top of the pizza with some of my favorite “Thai Food Accouterments” like bean sprouts, carrots and cilantro.
The result was a trip to melt-in-your-mouth delicious town!
Place the pork shoulder in a crock pot. Combine all of the other ingredients for the pulled pork in a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Reserve one cup of the sauce then pour the rest over the pork.
Cover and cook for 3-4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low.
Remove the pork from the crock pot and shred. I used the shredding blade on my awesome food processor to get a very fine shred, but shredding the good ol’ fashioned way with two forks works just as well!
Place the shredded pork back into the crock pot with the sauce and mix well.
Roti Bread Pizza Instructions
Evenly spread the reserved cup of peanut sauce on each slice of roti bread, then top each pizza with the pulled pork.
Place on a grill over medium heat for 4-5 minutes. Remove from the grill and top with the bean sprouts, carrots, cilantro, green onions and peanuts.
Serve each pizza with a wedge of lime for juicing on top of the pizza. This adds a nice juicy, flavorful tang!
Throw the pork into the crock pot in the morning, then easily toss these pizzas together for dinner that evening!
