Jules' Kids Chicken and Apricot Curry Recipe

Thermos Taste for Adventure

Juggling a full-time working day and energetic kids requires energy on both parts! Sometimes that energy is compromised by fussy eaters! One of my biggest challenges is finding tasty nutritious food that leaves the plate clean! My curry hides a veggie punch hidden behind the sweet and mild spices and tender chicken to keep the little rascals fuelled! We love to take this curry on the go in our Thermos so I can guarantee happy, full tummies wherever we go!

Serves 3 - 4
10 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to cook


  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the onion and ginger, if using, and sauté gently, stirring for 5 minutes. Add the curry paste and fry, stirring for 30 seconds.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients, bring to the boil, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for about 12 minutes until the squash is tender and the chicken is cooked through.
  3. Place in a bowl and mash until smooth or blend in a food processor until you have reached your desired consistency.
  4. Freeze in individual portions. Thaw overnight in the fridge or for 1-2 hours at room temperature, then microwave or reheat in a small pan until piping hot. Stir and allow to cool before serving.
  5. Tip: You can freeze the remainder of the can or carton of coconut milk for use another day.
