Chicken Green Chilli Curry with Giant Silverbeet

Recipe Type

Background Info

Chillies are easy to grow in most climates and so is silverbeet - sometimes just adding a small amount of home-grown chilli and a few freshly cut vegetables is all that's required to enhance a main meal. The following recipe is a simple knock up that's a family favourite. The chillies don't have to be green but I find them more tangy in fact in the example images for this recipe I did use one red chilli - typically I use all green though... Whatever, the main thing is the overall dish will work with any chilli green or red or both!

Recipe Info

Prep Time
15 mins
Cook Time
60 mins (maybe longer)
Serves or Units
3 Serves


4 Chillies medium sized chillies deseeded (I prefer medium to hot heat but mild works fine in this recipe)
1 Onion - one medium sized onion roughly chopped
3-4 Garlic cloves
1/2 lemon - juice of half
Pinch Salt & pepper - just a pinch of each or to your taste
Canola oil or butter (for lining the pan - optional)
800 mils Coconut cream (2 x cans)
3 pieces Chicken breast
2 cups Giant silverbeet including stems (any silverbeet or even kale will do)


  1. With a little butter or oil in a deep pan sear the chicken breasts until lightly brown.
  2. At the same time, place chillies, garlic, onion, lemon, salt & pepper in a food processor and blend into a paste. This could also be done in a mortar & pestle.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the coconut cream with the curry paste and then add it to the pan with the chicken. Stir well and deglaze the bottom of the pan initially then cover and turn down to a simmer.
  4. Simmer covered for about 30 minutes stirring occasionally.
  5. After about 30 mins remove the lid and add the chopped silverbeet then let the sauce reduce down and thicken.
  6. Once the sauce is nice and thick (like a thick gravy) cut the chicken breasts into chunks (about 3rds).
  7. Serve with rice, flat bread, and/or a crisp garden salad on the side.

Really delicious simple curry

This chili curry recipe may not look the most appetizing in the images but believe me it tastes amazing!

Chillies are really easy to grow and you can even get several years out of a plant. I would say even if you aren't the most adventurous palate you should get to know chillies more and grow them to eat because they are the easiest way to add flavour to a boring meal. 

In this case, the three main ingredients are chicken, chillies, and silverbeet, and together it's a dish fit for India. Yes, the coconut cream does "up" the flavours but overall there's not a lot to remember or do to make a great tasting meal in minutes with this simple recipe. 

Go for it!
