15 Minute Instant Pot Thai Red Curry Chicken- Easy & Delicious Recipe

Thai red curry chicken made in the Instant Pot, ready in just 15 minutes. Aromatic & flavourful Thai dish.

For making this dish, I’ve added Thai Kitchen brand red curry paste- my favorite brand. Red curry paste has garlic, shallots, lemongrass, galangal, coriander roots & kaffir lime peel-ground into a smooth paste. It’s packed with amazing aroma & flavors.

This curry can be served along with basmati rice, jasmine rice, or with rice noodles.
