Thai-style chicken & sweet potato parcels

Recipe by Chef Soomro Course: Thai


Prep time

10 mins


  • Coriander: handful coriander leaves and a few lime wedges, to serve
  • Red Pepper: 1 small red pepper, deseeded and cut into small cubes
  • Chicken Breast: 1 skinless chicken breast
  • Brown Sugar: 2 tsp soft brown sugar
  • Sweet Potato: 1/2 sweet potato, peeled and cut into small cubes
  • Fish Sauce: 1 tsp fish sauce
  • Thai Green Curry Paste: 2 tsp Thai green curry paste
  • Creamed Coconut: 25g creamed coconut (from a block)


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Dissolve the creamed coconut with 3 tbsp boiling water and mix to a smooth paste. Stir in the sugar, fish sauce and curry paste.
  2. Place a large piece of baking parchment on a baking sheet. Arrange the sweet potato and pepper in the middle of the paper, clearing a space in the centre. Lay the chicken breast in the space and pour over the sauce. Fold over the top edges of the parchment to form a seal and scrunch up the ends like a sweet wrapper.
  3. Cook in the oven for 25-30 mins or until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender. Sit the parcel on a dinner plate or shallow bowl and carefully open. Sprinkle with coriander and squeeze over some lime juice, to taste.
