Yellow curry with grilled chicken from the Big Green Egg

Must Try

I already mentioned in previous blogs that you can do much more with the Big Green Egg than just barbecue. But now we are also going to put it to the test by preparing a curry in its entirety on the EGG, including naan bread. And that was super fun to do!

I prepare the curry in the Green Dutch Oven, a cast iron pan that is perfect for stews, soups and roasting. A nice detail is that you can also use the lid separately as a shallow pan or baking pan for cakes or desserts, for example. I should have known this earlier when I made my apple pineapple crumble the other day .

But now it’s curry time! This dish is ideal for sharing and enjoying a meal together. For example, my sister and her boyfriend came to eat with us, and while you chat with your guests at the table, the Big Green Egg does its job. Think of it as a kind of outdoor kitchen. And it doesn’t have to be 30 degrees to use it. Due to the thick ceramic wall, the outside temperature has no influence on the temperature inside the EGG. Also useful if you want to make an autumn stew or winter soup, for example. Check out the Big Green Egg site for even more great ideas and inspiration .

For the curry I used a ready-made yellow curry paste. Of course you can also make it yourself, but this time I went for easy and fast. I used a pasta from Blue Elephant, it was quite spicy (so you know that :)). For the naan breads I used my super simple recipe with only 2 basic ingredients. You grill the loaves on the Big Green Egg while the pan is also on it, which is extra fast. You also grill the chicken on the stainless steel grid before it goes into the curry, so it gets an extra tasty taste and the juices are better preserved, which gives an extra tender result. And finally, throw the pineapple wedges on the grill for an extra sweet result. These were a delicious fresh addition to the spicy curry.

Recipe yellow curry with grilled chicken



1 x yellow curry paste
400 g chicken thighs
1 large red pepper
300 g chickpeas from a can or bag.
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 onion
2 garlic cloves
200 ml coconut milk
100 ml water
Fresh coriander

Splash of sunflower oil

Naan bread (3 pieces):
175 ml stirred yogurt
1 tablespoon oil
250 gr self-raising flour (+ extra for the workbench)
Pinch of salt

Big Green Egg
Dutch oven (cast iron pan)


Start by making the naan bread. Sift the self-raising flour and combine in a bowl with the yogurt, a pinch of salt and oil. Knead well for about 3 minutes by hand or with a food processor. Now make a ball of the part. Sprinkle your work surface and your hands with some flour. Now divide the dough into 3 portions and roll them out with a rolling pin or with your hand. Place the dough slices on a plate and cover with foil.

Place the cast iron pan on the grill of the Big Green Egg as soon as it is 200 degrees. Use the convEGGtor to cook indirectly. Let the pan heat up for a while. Meanwhile, place the naan breads on the grill around the pan. Bake for 3 to 4 minutes until brown on both sides and cooked through, then carefully remove. Sprinkle the chicken with a pinch of salt and pepper and then place on the grill around the pan.

Put a little oil in the pan and add the curry paste and fry it. Add the onion and garlic and sauté it. Then pour in the coconut milk and water and stir in the tomato paste. Put the lid on the pan and bring to a boil. Then add the bell pepper in strips and the grilled chicken (it does not have to be fully cooked yet). Put the lid back on the pan and close the EGG and let it simmer for 15 minutes. Finally add the drained chickpeas and heat through. At the same time, place the pineapple in wedges around the pan and grill with it. Garnish the curry with some coriander before serving and serve with the naan breads and grilled pineapple.
