  • 400ml reduced-fat coconut milk
  • 200ml chicken stock
  • 100g jar Cooks’ Ingredients Massaman Thai Curry Paste
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 pack essential Waitrose 6 British Chicken Thigh Fillets
  • 300g Waitrose Miniature Potatoes, halved
  • 50g cashew nuts or peanuts
  • 1 red chilli
  • 1/2 x 28g pack fresh coriander, leaves only
  • 2 salad onions, shredded
  • Cooked basmati rice, to serve
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges


  1. Place the coconut milk, stock, curry paste and cinnamon stick in a large saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cut the chicken into cubes and add to the pan with the potatoes. Cook gently for 20-25 minutes until the potatoes are tender and the chicken is cooked through with no pink meat remaining.

  2. Meanwhile, toast the cashew nuts or peanuts in a small non-stick frying pan for 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Deseed the chilli and slice it into long shreds. Set aside.

  3. Divide the curry among 4 bowls and scatter with the toasted nuts, coriander leaves, chilli and salad onions. Serve with rice and lime wedges for squeezing over.
