25 Minute Chicken Panang

This 25 minute Chicken Panang is currently our favourite dish of the week. Its sweet and spicy, but not too much that the kiddos can't enjoy it and what is better it takes no time at all to whip up, dinner served in no time!

With Leanora settling back into school and me back at work, it can leave little time to cook, especially when you've got homework to do, get a load of washing on, tidy the house and sort the cat out, life can be manic, so I am all about a stress free evening when it comes to some tasty, delicious and healthy grub.

With the seasons changing, this 25 minute chicken Panang is super tasty, comforting and a total crowd pleaser! Whilst your saving on time, not on flavour. 

Most Sundays we have a roast chicken, A great for left overs or B when on the school run I pass Sainsburys and I am able to pick up a rotisserie chicken, all whilst still making the 3:20pm pickup -boom! Now tell me that is not great multi tasking right there! With that said, there goes saving time on cooking the chicken as its cooked already, all you are really doing is serving it up with some lovely steamed.

The first time I actually ever had a chicken Panang, it was actually a prawn version, all in a pub in Brighton and I've loved it ever since, but never dared make it before. 

Fast forward a few years later, the supermarkets are brilliant as they offer pastes to help you make these creations, saving your time in the kitchen as I imaging making these beautiful fragrant pastes will take a lot of time and love to make, during the week I just don't have that, so with different pastes offered from all over the world in your closest supermarket is great for busy people like me and you. 

This past cost me less than £1.50 from the local supermarket another school run purchase and I had everything else I needed to bring this perfect dish in to magical tasty harmony at home. 

I have loads of staples that I always keep stocked at home, coconut milk, fresh chillies and fresh parsley and an obvious rice, be it brown or white, just depends on what I fancy on the day. These few key ingredients are all you need to make this 25 minute week night dish.

Now enough of the chit chat, lets get down to your new go-to week night meal. 


  • Ready cooked chicken enough to serve 4 (always need extra for tomorrow's lunch)
  • 190 grams pf Panang curry paste
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 1 - 2 red chilies sliced for garnish
  • a bunch of fresh chopped parsley for garnish
  • Steamed rice for serving


  • Put your rice on and cook as per the packet instructions
  • Heat a pot with a little oil on medium heat and cook out your paste for 3-5 minutes until fragrant
  • Add your coconut milk and cook out for a further 3-5 minutes
  • Add your ready cooked shredded chicken and stir to combine the sauce for a further 10 minutes
  • Serve the chicken over your freshly steamed rice and add your chopped chilies and parsley as you desire
