Chinese New Year is the perfect time to try a new chicken curry recipe. Pineapple chicken curry is a sweet, aromatic and flavorful dish that your whole family will love.  Serve with rice and chop sticks for homemade Thai take out at home!

My family loves Asian food.  Sesame seed oil, curry powder, and fish sauce are all staples in my pantry.  We have several curry recipes that we love including Chicken Curry Kebabs, Curried Rice, and even a Beef Curry.    We love our curry dishes!  In honor of  Chinese New Year, a 15-day celebration that kicked off earlier this week, I decided it was time to add another curry recipe to my recipe box.

I was given a set of Thai Kitchen food products to “thai” out in honor of The Year of the Dragon.  Thai Kitchen and Simply Asia offer a complete line of Asian ingredients and convenience items, including sauces, curry pastes, rice noodles, fish sauce, coconut milk, noodle bowls, and more. Most items are free of gluten, artificial colors/flavors and MSG.  It can be hard to find a curry sauce that is MSG free so I love that Thai Kitchen's paste is clean!

Pineapple chicken curry is a sweet and slightly spicy dish.  I think it's my favorite curry recipe, yet.  You can control the spice by using more or less of the red curry paste.  I only used one tablespoon and it wasn't spicy at all. Next time, I'll definitely be using more.  The curry comes together very quickly and would be perfect for a Chinese New Year party.
