  • 1.5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into chunks
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 1 can (14 ounces) coconut milk
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish
  • Cooked rice, for serving


  1. Set the Instant Pot to sauté mode and heat the vegetable oil. Add the diced onion and sauté until it becomes translucent.

  2. Add the minced garlic and grated ginger to the pot and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.

  3. Stir in the red curry paste and cook for another minute to toast the flavors.

  4. Add the chicken thighs to the pot and stir until they are coated with the curry paste.

  5. Pour in the coconut milk, chicken broth, fish sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, and lime juice. Stir everything together.
