Juicy chicken meatballs swimming in the most flavorful Thai red curry sauce is what I crave once a week!
If you have not tried my Thai Red Curry Soup yet, you must!
If you are more a meat lover, this recipe is even better! It combines my love for Thai spices, coconut milk and juicy chicken meatballs.
Here I am giving you my tips on how to make the best chicken meatballs, whether you end up making the sauce or not.
Make The Chicken Meatball Mixture
Note: If you plan on serving these meatballs with rice, start by cooking the rice per packet instructions.
Add all of the chicken meatball ingredients to a large bowl and mix well using a fork or clean hands.
Form into small or medium size meatballs. I use a small ice cream scoop to ensure they are all about the same size.
Pan Fry The Chicken Meatballs
Cook The Vegetables
Add The Flavors & Coconut Milk
Add The Meatballs back to the Skillet
Next, add the meatballs to the sauce and allow the meatballs to finish cooking in the coconut curry sauce, about 5-7 minutes.
To check if the meatballs are done, remove one meatball and cut in half. The cooking time will vary depending on the size of your meatballs.
Once the meatballs are done, turn off the heat and taste for seasoning.
At this point, I add a bit of salt and the juice of half or a whole lime.
Very little salt is needed because both the meatballs and sauce are heavily flavored.
Once seasoning has been adjusted, add chopped spring onion and cilantro.

This looks awesome ! Thank you for posting 🙂
Just made it. Very yummy! Smells and looks amazing. Definitely going to my favourites.
I just made this for my 3 teenage boys and they LICKED their plates clean. Thank you for this delicious, gluten free, nutritious meal! It will definitely be in the weekly mix.
Speaking as a very experienced cook who has tried many different recipes, this is seriously one of the best recipes I’ve made. My family loved it. I stuck to the recipe, but I made a double recipe. And, I didn’t have the roasted red chili paste on hand, so I increased the red curry paste. The flavors really complement each other. I also made it with Carolina Yellow rice, which is a very light and fluffy rice, and fresh green beans and mushrooms. Try it–you’ll love it. Thanks for the awesome recipe!
