Cooking a thai sauce just right can be a little tricky and expensive once you buy all of the right herbs and spices. If you’re like me, I don’t always have the time to make all of my meals from scratch.

I discovered Trader Joe’s years ago and when I found their yellow curry, I knew I found heaven on Earth! It has the perfect amount of heat and paired with the chicken and vegetables gives it the right amount of texture.

Thai Yellow Curry Sauce

Trader Joe’s has a variety of curry sauces: green, yellow and red. I’m a big fan of the yellow curry sauce. It’s not as think and sweet as some sauces I’ve tried, but I found the flavor to be just right. It’s got a light heat, deep savory flavor and a punch of onions and garlic. Pairing this sauce with the chicken and vegetables is the perfect meal.

This yellow curry sauce also makes a great base if you want to add any additional flavors like coconut milk, fish sauce or sugar.

Ingredients in Yellow Curry Sauce from Trader Joe’s

What makes the curry yellow?

The yellow curry mainly gets its color from turmeric powder. It has a beautiful deep golden color that colors the dish.

What can I serve with Curry?

With this curry, I love to serve it with jasmine rice on the side, but it is also delicious to serve the curry over a bed of the rice. Naan bread is also a perfect side for this dish.

Prep Your Meal Ahead

If you want an even faster way to make yellow curry chicken, prep the vegetables on the weekend to make for a quick evening dinner.

Cutting the vegetables will take the most time, but if you cut them up prior to dinner time, you can cut off at least 5-10 min of the prep time.
