Vietnamese Chicken Curry Tray Bake

It’s curry… but not as you know it! All the magic of this creamy, flavourful Vietnamese chicken curry happens in the oven, making it one of my favourite tray bakes. I like to serve it with a crunchy baguette, but you could also try it with steamed rice or fresh noodles.

This tasted amazing, I only had chicken thighs so I adapted it to a frypan on the cook top, I didn’t want it to dry out in an open pan and it worked. The flavours mixed so well together, try it and you won’t be disappointed 🤗🤗

This is a great dish. Full of flavour. I have made it a couple of times.

I love Marion’s idea of the baguette for soaking up the juices, rather than rice.

The first time the coconut milk split while cooking but I have since read that a little bit of cornflour will stop this happening.

I am going to try this is the slow cooker next time.
