How to Make Chicken Sausage Curry

Whether you’re craving the robust flavors of Thailand or seeking an easy homemade meal to satisfy your whole family, this Chicken Sausage Curry promises to deliver. 

With a mere 30 minutes of total time spent from prep to plate, this one-pot wonder combines the savory tastes of chicken sausage, onion, garlic and ginger with the creaminess of coconut milk and depth of soy sauce.


  • 1 pound chicken sausage, sliced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 inch ginger, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red Thai curry paste
  • 14 ounce can coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Rice or bread, for serving

STEP 1: Heat the Oil

In a large skillet over high heat, heat the olive oil. This allows the ingredients to cook quickly.

STEP 2: Brown the Sausage

Add the sliced chicken sausage to the hot oil. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until browned on all sides. Remove sausage to a plate and set aside.

STEP 3: Cook the Aromatics

Reduce heat to medium. Add the onion, garlic, and ginger to the pan. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until the onion is softened and translucent. The garlic and ginger release wonderful flavors during this step.

STEP 4: Add the Curry Paste

Stir in the red Thai curry paste. Cook for 1 minute to gently toast the paste and bring out its robust flavor.

STEP 5: Return Sausage and Add Liquids

Return the browned sausage to the skillet. Pour in the coconut milk and soy sauce. Stir to combine. Bring to a gentle simmer. Soy sauce adds depth while coconut milk creates a rich, creamy base.

STEP 6: Simmer Away

Allow the curry to simmer for 15-20 minutes, partly covered, until thickened slightly. Stirring occasionally prevents sticking and allows the flavors to develop fully.

STEP 7: Serve Over Rice

Serve the chicken sausage curry warm, spooned over rice or with bread to soak up the flavorful sauce. Enjoy this hearty one-pot meal!

That’s it! With only 30 minutes of prep and cook time, you can enjoy this satisfying curry. The comforting flavors provide enough for leftovers too. Serve it alongside crusty bread or over coconut rice for a delicious and nutritious filling supper. Enjoy!

Simmer this mixture in the saucepan after browning the sausages for 10 minutes to allow the flavors to blend. Adding coconut provides richness.

Can I use leftover rice or other grains instead of making steamed rice?

Yes, you can definitely use leftover cooked rice, quinoa, freekeh, farro or other grains instead of cooking rice from scratch. 

Just warm it through in the microwave briefly before serving with the curry. This is a budget friendly way to use up leftovers.

You can feel free to substitute ingredients in this easy chicken sausage curry recipe. For example, you could use chopped spicy chicken or beef sausages instead of mild chicken sausages.
