These green curry and coconut rice bowls make life so much easier! When you just want a bowl of comfort, you should turn to these. It comes together in less than 30 minutes and it’s so flavorful. I infused my rice with coconut cream so as it was cooking away in the rice cooker, the coconut aroma just filled my entire kitchen. I love coconut so much I could bathe in it, haha
With the weather cooling down, we really appreciated having this for dinner because it really warmed us right up and it has all the great flavors to go along with it! The green curry and coconut mixture was especially good to spoon over and mix with the coconut flavored rice.
This recipe would be perfect for meal prepping for the week. The coconut rice could be the base layer in your glass container then you could spoon the green curry and coconut mixture on top along with the veggies and chicken. Do this four times on repeat and you’ve got a delicious lunch every day!

This green curry and coconut-infused bowl will make your dinner time super flavorful!
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 1 large red bell pepper, sliced
- 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, diced
- 2 tablespoons green curry paste
- 1 tablespoon lemongrass paste
- 1: 13.66 ounce can of full fat coconut milk
- 2/3 cup frozen peas, thawed
- Pinch turmeric powder
- Salt and pepper, to taste
In a large pot, heat up 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot add garlic and onion and cook until softened and fragrant, about 2-3 minutes. Add the red bell pepper and cook until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Next, add the diced chicken and stir to cook for about 5 minutes.
Add the curry paste and lemongrass paste. Stir around to coat then add the coconut milk and frozen peas. Add the turmeric powder and salt and pepper. Cover and let simmer for 10 minutes.
Serve over coconut rice (see notes) and enjoy!
To make the coconut rice: prior to cooking your rice however you want (rice cooker, stovetop), open the can of coconut milk (without shaking it) and scoop off the cream at the top and mix it in with the rice. As the rice cooks, it will melt and cook with the coconut cream giving you a subtle coconut-flavored rice!
